I really love all the beach noise

I thank you for the free entertainment delivered right to my door courtesy of the troubadours on duty.

Open letter to the mayor of Parksville — thankful beyond words:

I thank you dearly for the Friday evening free entertainment delivered right at my door step due to the courtesy of the troubadours on duty, who once again played their music full blast.

As I have already mentioned in one of my previous letters to you, my house is situated 1.1 km from the park, as the crow flies, but the quality of the sound was impeccable so I could make out the actual words of the songs.

“If you cannot beat them — join them!”

With this savvy phrase in mind I decided to forbore resistance and  jump on the bandwagon: I grooved on the music and I sang along. After all, why close the windows shut and crank up my TV when all this won’t help with blocking out the riot from the park?
