Samba rocks!

Cheaper Than Therapy
Heeheeee, Apparently, our local town crier is not strong enough on his legs to participate in the parade part of the carnival and has to use a disabled scooter thing.
But the real memories this day brings back are of this:

The samba band from my son’s school. He’s in there somewhere!
Here’s another clip showing their samba teacher. Bear in mind that they had only been playing samba for a year when they took part in this parade. And they weren’t even getting lessons every week.

head on over to Cheaper than Therapy for more fascinating photos by clicking on the Thousand Words Thursday banner at the top of this post.


  1. Love the town crier shot!

  2. That Town Crier shot is hilarious! And the samba band did a great job considering they weren't getting regular lessons - very impressive! :)

    Happy ATWT! :)

  3. Wow, they sound pretty good!

  4. Looks like you had a great time!

  5. Oh how fun. I love the picture of the town crier. I can't wait until the wee ones are old enough to be in parades... nicely done by them!

  6. The town crier is a hoot!

  7. shouldn't the town crier announce his presence vocally and not with a sign? i'm just sayin ;)

  8. Love the town crier!!!
    The band did great!!
