Just when I thought I had as many job titles as one dog could bear, I was thrust into a new position: Band Volunteer Pennie. Yes, I have been forced to join the ranks of Band Volunteers and I am now Prop Committee Pennie.
The Prop Pieces began to arrive at my 0.46 acres of Suburbia on Wednesday night. As I shall never actually be allowed to attend a Marching Band Show, I will simply have to visualize that somehow I am helping to make a City Scape. As the pieces were unloaded from the Graphic Artist's Van, I escorted each piece into Dad's Workshop/2nd Garage.
In order to make way for building the City Scape, one of Dad's convertibles had to be moved out of the garage. He actually was able to get it started enough to move it out into the driveway. The "other" convertible has to remain in the Workshop/2nd Garage, for it is not actually in "Convertible" form right now, but is in "pieces" form. Perhaps it is like one of those Hasbro Transformer toys that shall one day rise out of the rusty, scattered pieces and actually become an actual vehicle.
But i digress.
I have been in the Workshop nonstop as Prop Pennie, ever since the Prop Project began. I now have a permanent odor of wood dust and shavings about my fur. Me, Pennie, who trembles at a firework and shakes during thunderstorms, is Shop Supervisor Pennie when it comes to Power Tools. The whir of the drills, the roar of the saws, are all music to my ears, and I escort each piece of plywood as Dad moves it.
I do hope that in the Band Program, when credits are given to the Prop Committee, that my name, Pennie, is given due recognition.
