Festing

I just returned from spending three days in Milwaukee with my brother. I've been going to Summerfest with him since sometime in the mid-seventies, not long after he moved to Milwaukee to work for Northwestern Mutual. He is now retired but we're still going to Summerfest — not in the evenings when the big acts appear, but from shortly after  it opens at noon until the crowds begin to impede movement. We sit, we listen, we eat and drink, but mostly we watch. Summerfest is one of the great people-watching opportunities of the year.

Posting now resumes.
