I took my still-grumpy self to Marine Stadium for tonight's Muni Band Concert.
I was determined to be cheerful.
As it turned out, I was well entertained before the concert.
The following pictures were snapped as I sat in my chair on the band stand.
The tide was high tonight:
This monster C-17 was easy to spot (and hear) as it lumbered its way to Long Beach Airport: A daring lenslinger hung from the open door of a police helicopter as it repeatedly buzzed the crowd before the concert (it left promptly at 6:29): It was HOT and sunny on the stand.
Clarinetist David, seated directly behind me, found cover for his bald spot:Clarinetist Larry was stylin': Okay, I feel better now.
Tomorrow, El Dorado Park.
