Date Night

She looks like a nice enough person, don't you think?

From the photo below, you wouldn't think my wife
had an evil bone in her body, would you?


But than how could she come up to me
and dump this pile of extra, unused maybe out dated phone chargers
and similar technological tools and say,
"Could you straighten all this out?"

As I write this the pile is still there.

Anyway, last night we headed out to Longwood Gardens
to help celebrate the fact that the open air theatre pictured below
has been the venue for artists of all kinds for 100 years.


It's pretty amazing.

 Last night we watched a performance by a local Mexican dance group.
They were fantastic.


Usually when you go to a stage performance at almost any location,
they have curtains off to the side of the stage
where the performers will go behind while they await their next act.
Do you know what I'm talking about?

At the open air theatre at Longwood Gardens
the "curtains" are replaced by these hedges pictured below,
and the performers run in between the hedges.

It's pretty cool.

After the performance by the dance group
we walked through the gardens to another location
where we caught the Folk music act
by a Brooklyn NY based group.


They were great.
I bought their CD.
10 bucks.
Can't beat that.




We wrapped up the night with a bit of salsa dancing on our back deck.

A pretty good way to spend a pleasant summer evening.

What a fantastic date; you are a cute couple. In our house, I'm also the evil one; I've done the same thing to the Coach!

I've seen that stage several time, but never been there during a live performance. I like Beth's suggestion.

This stage and garden is so much like our Washington Park, where I once was in another lifetime performance on the stage. Now for all those cords, I recently dug through my accumulation and had no idea what half of them were. Some are heading to the recycle with the computer geeks in town that collect that stuff.
