Throwback Thursday - Baton

Just seeing a photo of a baton makes me nostalgic for twirling.  That's what we called it in the south when I was growing up:  twirling.  I took lessons during my elementary school years and loved it, practiced at home in the backyard.  We didn't have majorettes at my small high school;  if we had I am sure I would have wanted to continue twirling into my teens.  As it is, batons make me remember long summer days, listening to my transistor radio and twirling in the backyard.
