vintage guard equipment

I have a neighbor named Louie. Apparently, his mother used to spin in her high school Colorguard. Her parents visited her and her husband yesterday, and, having just cleaned out their attic and finding their daughter’s practice flags from her Guardie days, they brought them over to give back to her. Since she doesn’t spin anymore, she decided to give those flags to me. I woke up this morning owning one rifle and two costumes. (From last year.) I now own two gorgeous swing flags, one practice flag, one rifle, and two costumes. Even though the flag is shorter than I use (it’s five foot and I spin a six) and both pieces of equipment are old, I’m still really happy!
