Beaverdale Live

Saturday night was Beaverdale Live. You could tell people were ready to get out of their houses and enjoy the dry night. The street was packed. It is nice to live in a neighborhood where people come out to celebrate our community.

The stage delivery guy forgot to bring the stage, which made it hard to see the band. It wasn't one of my favorite local bands, so I didn't mind. Not having a stage made it easier to talk instead of paying attention to the band.

I ran into several friends, including some that I hadn't seen or talked to in months. There were
so many people there that I knew it was hard to catch up with everyone. I didn't get much of a chance to talk to the Stacinator, or her friend Amanda (who just moved back to Des Moines). I barely spoke to Justin or his girlfriend Sarah. Luckily it's only June, and there are many outdoor concerts for us to get caught up at.

I spent most of the night talking to Stimmel, Mark, Ann, and Todd. We stayed until they opened the street back up.

It was the best night of the summer so far. Perfect weather, great company, and good conversation. What more could you ask for?

Did I hallucinate something along the lines of Beaverfest in your world too? You live in a perfect neighborhood - it's as if it were designed specifically for Sarah Jane.

We have Beaverfest in September. Those are leather chaps. That woman is wearing chaps and holding a dog. Classy.

Ummm are those people really wearing assless chaps?

Glad you had such a good time & I hope you find time to catch up with everyone else!
