Stepping lively

Only three aggregations braved the heat to march up Congress as a teaser for the battle of the bands and drumline competition: Hearne, Austin SWAC All-Stars, and another. We spent the time while we waited in shops of Mexic-Arte, La Peña, and Tesoros. We acquired a book, some post cards of art promoting movies from the epoca de oro, a cheap Panama-type hat, a cloth-and-wood folding fan, and an oilcloth carrybag. We also went into the bank (Guaranty) and saw the building housing Kyoto and the Elephant room from inside the Temple-Inland Buiding. Lots of us enjoyed the water features and sunken landscaping at the former Franklin Bank building. The Austin Police Department pipers preceded the parade. Titus Electric has, evidently, paid for a trailer for carrying pipes and drums. Tesoros has evidently licensed some images from the Agrasanchez archives.
