Concert in the park
My town is a musical town. One of its traditions is the Quincy Park Band, and one sure sign of summer is the appearance of the Park District’s mobile band shell next to the tennis courts in Madison Park. This past Sunday was a typical warm summer evening for an hour’s band music from 6:30 to 7:30.
The trees in the park may be nearing the end of their leafy lives, but this one was on duty providing shade for the audience in their lawn chairs.
Of course, there are other important things to do in the park besides listening to the oompahs, like playing catch with a friend.
These kids are still a little young to be playing catch, but their mother is enjoying the music and hoping it rubs off on two young lives.
I found it a little hard to manage a camera and a cane, so I checked my cane at Tree #98, a venerable Sugarberry tree, receiving a slip of bark as a claim check. (Anyone care to guess how I know it is a Sugarberry tree?)
