I'm done

As of today, I'm done with 2007. All my pictures have been posted (click on the Homeshow by David S. link in the right sidebar to see a nice batch from the Colts' stop in Dubuque), and I'm ready to move on to 2008. How about you?

Oh, and there are pictures of the Colt Cadets included in this batch.


(My goal was to have all my pictures from tour processed and posted by the end of Oct. And I made it. Goals are good.)

I've played mello for the Colts the past two summers. Yesterday, Scott
Oliver, Joe Rush, (Euph/Bari) and some friends and I were having
halloween fun. Attached is a picture of the pumpkin I carved.
Cooktruck material? :-D

I posted links to more galleries from Lisa P. this morning. Cool stuff from Pasadena rehearsal days, San Diego, and something bizarre called "Rest Stop after El Paso." Check out Orwoll in the sombrero.

Crave a corps carve? has a page with a downloadable pumpkin-carving template featuring the Colts logo. Get your knife and your pumpkin and go to it. And send us a picture if you make one.

(There are other templates on the same page for other corps -- but who cares?)

Happy Colts Halloween!
