The Drum Beat
Before our roving reporter joined the local Temple Valley drumming group based out of of the Crane View Shinto Shrine no one in the troupe wore costumes for the traditional midnight ceremonies ushering in the New Year. This year our drum beat reporter ditched his tiger stripes and donned more appropriate attire befitting the coming year of the rabbit. On his left is fellow God of Light Drumming group member, J. Guttermouth, who is looking for someone to fill out the rear end of the dragon costume he is planning to wear next year.
