Our night out

Our night out, we went downtown to get some birdseed.  Pretty tame evening and plans of a early night were on both of our minds.   Going past our favorite night spot we saw and heard the jazz band set up outside and playing away. 

               

              

   Of course we had to stop and listen.  Since it was nice we pulled some chairs outside and listened to them play.  The young kid on the upright bass was so good and they were having fun.  Who would have thought we could sit out in October in Iowa and listen to live music!   There was a full moon and the grim reaper was out and about so we tried to keep a low profile.

     

     

   Friday night down there is a regular meat market and it was fun to sit and listen to the music and watch the action.  Our friend Gary came by so we sat and made plans to go to Council Bluffs in the morning for a beer tasting.   Should be a good day.

      

    Since we were sitting outside more people wanted to so they ended up opening up the patio.  Everyone was really enjoying the music but of course none of my pictures show how many people were actually out enjoying the evening.

    

   Rick had a good time holding up the wall and it was a pleasant evening.  Who knows how many of these evening we will enjoy.

       

  So tomorrow we get up early and head out of town.  It should be fun.  I think I will need a 5 hour energy and hope I don't have a gall bladder attack.  Like is short so we should enjoy each and every moment.

After the way you've been feeling, with your gallbladder and all, it's good that you and hubby were able to get out and enjoy a few hours together.  Pain free! :)  
Speaking of weather..  I wish ours would cool down.  It has, a bit.. but not much.  Still in the 80's and I just wish it would drop to the low 70's or upper 60's.  I am sick of heat!  Glad you had a pleasant evening in Iowa! :)

Hugs

Looks like a wonderful evening!  Glad you were able to do all of that without pain.  
I tried to take a pic of the moon last night....but my camera won't do it. I need a better camera.
Glad you had fun!
