After the Party

The weekend of Philadelphia's parties before the nation and the world is over. I attended most of last night's concert in front of the museum and was disappointingly bored by it. No musician sang more than three songs, I think including Elton John (may have had four), and most of those songs were slow or lacking energy. Between each cameo act were intermissions longer than the acts, either of commercials or fundraising pitches. Ginger and I squeezed out of the crowd before Sir Elton who was preceded by a half-hour of intermission. We could hear the music from the condo and watch the crowds who had gathered in front of our building. The night was saved by the fireworks which were directly across from our window. Spectacular! Next year we will stay inside to enjoy the festivities.
