Tubas Rule!

Tuba player practicing in the car park.

We don't know about other countries, but all over the US, fall is when the tubas come out. And the big, bass drums. Also the flutes, trumpets, trombones, oboes and piccolos. It's marching band season.

No, it has nothing to do with politics. It's all about using the ball field during half-time. Some people go to watch their teams push that strangely shaped 'ball' around. The rest of us go over to watch the band strut its stuff and hear the happy noises. The band in this picture was warming up in the car park before performing in the annual band festival just down the street from the Post Office's US branch. So we snapped a sneaky photo.

Their performance involved selections from 'Pirates of the Caribbean'. And this was on Talk Like a Pirate Day. Is that cool, or what?
