A couple of days ago, I posted a little about how I became Aunt Debbi. Racquel at Perennial Garden Lover recognized our shared Texas drill team legacy and chimed right in. We agreed a drill team glory days double post was in order. You can see her post on her time as a Stingerette right here.
I am sure this picture made my Dad really happy.
Below is a picture of the 1981-82 North Mesquite Pacesetters.I have no idea where I am. We were sixty members strong.
Next is a collage of "What in the world were we thinking" pictures. Most of these were taken at drill team camp in Kilgore Texas, home of the Rangerettes.

Top right -Look at Meme
Bottom left -Who picked out those goofy hats? And can we rub off some of that makeup please?
Bottom right -Did we really have to create geometric shapes in our camp roommate picture? Dig the french braids. I am the chick without a tan on the bottom right.
Sorry Meme, I found a curler picture.
I spent three years wearing blue eye shadow, red lipstick, Lycra, and industrial strength pantyhose. I killed the ozone with tons of hairspray. I tore up the pantyhose doing jump splits and knee spins on AstroTurf and gym floors during football and basketball games. I did all of this with my very best friend.
We enjoyed performing at Dallas Cowboy and Dallas Mavericks games. Profession athletes are huge - just an observation.
Here is a little short list of my misadventures during drill team
Jump splits in the mud
Boot kicked across the field during high kick routine
Being accidentally tackled by a out of bounds football player
Forgetting my lipstick before lining up on the field and having to kiss my best friend. Love you Meme, but not "that" way.
Falling off a human pyramid.
Do you have any high school glory days stories you would care to share? Don't be embarrassed. I fessed up to wearing blue eye shadow.
