I know, Reader Dear,  it seems as though all I've got to say of late involves music.  Here's more.

"We should go into the city, " The Yard Man suggested yesterday as we ate supper.  It  was such a fine summer evening, he proposed we stroll around the big Summer Celebration that was in progress.  "There are lots of different bands playing, and food trucks. There'll be fireworks.  It should be good," he said.

And so we did.  And we hadn't done more than ten minutes of strolling when  The Yard Man was suddenly asked to give an account of why he was there! 

He made the same presentation that he'd made to me.   "And, uh, it seems like a great way to spend a summer evening!" he concluded.
The reporter seemed pleased.  "Very good," he said. "Watch the local news at eleven!"

 And then, sure enough, there were lots of bands playing.

There were food trucks galore.

And when it got dark, there were fireworks.
It was all good!

It was a great way to spend a summer evening, just as 
The Yard Man had predicted!*

*Turns out, there were crimes and a fire to report on the late-night news (Uh, you know, what one might call  Real News).  You, Viewer Dear, get exclusive viewing of The Yard Man's interview!
