Five Senses Friday - The June 15, 2012 Edition

It's Friday and I haven't posted a Five Senses Friday in awhile. so sure as shootin' today is the day.  Actually all of my senses were gathered in one place last night at our Band Concert in Central Park held every Thursday night in the summertime.  If it's summer, it's band concert time here in my town. People come from near and far to hear the open air music, traveling anyway they can....

They come by cars, by wagons, or by bicycles...however they can, they come....

And when they arrive they are always in for a treat...bringing their own to taste....

Everyone has to eat..."can I have some more...please?"

Or taking advantage of tasty treats sold...(now what was it that my wife told me to get??) The smells from the gazebo waft over the people with it's temptations of homebaked goodies.

And I am definitely wondering how these people's butts are going to feel at the end of the concert sitting on that curb all night?? Looks like mustache man is already thinking, "maybe this wasn't such a good idea."

Some would rather read the important news of the day, rather than watch the band play.

Some have to put out signs that say "here we are, see us??!!."

But me, I just like to hear the band play on into the evening while watching the sun set slowly behind the trees.

I hope you find something that opens all your senses this weekend.  Have a happy one.  And I would really like it if you would hop on over to my collaborative blog Focusing On Life, where I am "just hangin' "

"Life is like playing the violin in public and learning the instrument as you go along."

Until next time.....


  1. What a great way to come together as a community.

  2. Looks like a fun evening. It's fun to watch all the different people, isn't it? :)

  3. Sounds like a wonderful evening. I'm going to a HUGE town-wide garage sale this morning - hopefully that will awaken my senses (something tells me it will :))

  4. You captured some great moments. I smiled at your mustache man comment. Yeah, that little blanket under his hiney is not really helpful. Tee hee. Glad you had fun and brought your camera along. :)

  5. How fun! I love these kinds of community events. :)

  6. Deanna - the town concerts sound so grand! We just finished our brass band weekend a week ago (wrote about it on my blog). You'd probably love it, a solid weekend of town concerts, parades, food, friends, fun.

  7. Lovely Deanna, It made me wish that I was just sitting outside with you listening from afar. I bet you are great company!

  8. I just love to go listen to music under the stars.. Here in Vegas they have to play at night and then sometimes its still to hot.. I love your photos my friend..


Thank you so much for leaving a comment, I read and cherish them all. I will do my best to return the favor.
