Music Marathon, Day 3: Lake Effect at Park Silly Sunday Market
Sometimes the best laid plans go astray, and today was no exception. I heard a knock at my door when I was still in bed. A big oops. It was my daughter and her puppy. We'd arranged a fun Sunday morning breakfast, which quickly was revamped as lunch up in Park City at the Silly Markets as it was almost 11.
Getting coffee was slow as my grinder died. And the puppy refused to do that which we knew she needed to do. Eventually we headed out of the house for the Colin Robison concert at Miner's Park. We found parking easily, but were distracted quickly as Daisy found a bed of daisies, and it was just too cute.
When we got to the Park Silly Sunday Market, a half block away, people swarmed Daisy.
"Oh she's so cute!"
"Look, a boxer!"
"Can I pet her?"
"How old is she?"
"Is this your first boxer?"
"How many kids do you have?" (asking my daughter, not me)
"Can I take her picture?"
We got tacos from one of the food court places and sat down right near the band, which had started playing about the time we found our way to the bottom of the hill. Fortunately we were able to get free water for ourselves and the dog, who got very thirsty in the hot sun.
