I am back at home on the deck with four dogs lounging close by, enjoying this near perfect weather as the sun makes its descent.
At 8:50 PM, it is still quite light.
I took No. 17 down to The Levitt Pavilion for an outdoor evening concert featuring Sinclair Community College’s music program.
I had preordered my Subway sandwich at the store across the street from the pavilion; however, their sign flashed open while their doors remained locked and the inside dark. Within a few minutes I received notification letting me know my meal had been cancelled due to the store hours. The store’s website indicated it was open until 8:00 PM.
I set up my chair on the pavilion’s lawn and noted there was a concession booth but it was a barbecue place. I am not a big fan of barbecue but decided to order something: loaded mac & cheese with pulled pork. While it tasted fine, it just wasn’t my thing.
The concert was good but as I calculated the bus schedule, I decided to take the 8:20 PM No. 17 as it looked like I might have a 45-60 minute wait after the concert. As a young child, Mother always encouraged me to bring along a book or a pad of paper and pen should I ever be in a position to wait any length of time.
I am always prepared. Cell phone technology has helped immensely.
As I stepped off the bus at home, I heard music blasting from The Fraze Pavilion which is a block from my house. I love having live music while I am on my deck.
I also have several cardinals serenading.
So, I have had a full night of live music. You cannot beat that!
