Match to Flame 152

As all of the aforementioned was going on, Harry L. Dinkle, the World’s Greatest Band Director, and his adventures with the band were a continuing running side story under everything. A new collection of the band strips came out called Attack of the Band Moms, and I continued in my role as a de facto band chaperone as I traveled the country giving talks about Harry and the Marching Scapegoats Band. In December 1996, I traveled to Chicago for the Midwest Clinic International Band, Orchestra and Music Conference, where I was awarded their Medal of Honor, although I realize that I was only a stand-in for Harry. Although things were about to change, for now, Harry continued to reign as my most recognizable and enduring character.
