Singing, dining and dancing in the parks

Thank you all so much for your patience. I have spent the last hour and a half redoing my bloglist, and half way through, they were wiped out again. So, I had to add and then SAVE each individual one. Very time consuming, but I am finished for now.

I am certain that I have forgotten some of my followers, so please send me your link, and I'll add you back again.

Now that it is June, just a reminder that all around St. Louis, there are free concerts in the parks and also downtown at the Old Post Office, and at the Zoo. Also, on Wednesday nights, free admission to the Botanical Gardens after 5:00 and they also have great live music. Everyone brings a blanket or chairs and stakes their claim on a section of lawn.

I am looking forward to the concerts in Carlondelet Park on Sunday evenings. June
5th, Bob Kuban is performing, and then, on 6/12 they have an old time rock and roll band. Nothing I enjoy more than people watching and listening to MY music in the park.

For those of you out of towners, it is a sight to behold: hillsides filled with picnikers, blankets and lawn chairs, people of all ages, pets, everything from dogs to cockatoos and parrots.

Some folks go all out, they pop the cork and dine on wine and cheese. Some have family dinners on pop-up tables. It is a writer's paradise.

I plan to be at Tilles Park tomorrow evening for the St. Louis Writer's Guild picnic. Hope to see you there.

Hi, Linda. Sorry about your blog woes. I have Wordpress, so I don't think I was on your list. I forgot about the SLWG picnic tomorrow night! Have fun -- I have a prior commitment, or I'd try to join you! Can't wait to hear all about it. :)

I freaked out the first time my page opened up and said was not following anyone. It all came back later and has happened a time or two since but always comes back thank God. Blogger seems to be doing better now. Have a marvelous day.

Those blog problems have been SOOO frustrating, but sounds like you got the doozy! Loved your post on the concerts, though, since I'm planning to attend one tonight along the St. Charles riverfront. I love this area!! Hope you get to relax and put those blog problems behind you.

Sounds like you have some fun stuff coming up!

My blog is still on the fritz with everything from followers to posting. When everything works right I heave a sigh of relief. I really do hope they don't upgrade again any time soon. It doesn't feel like an upgrade, does it...
