Sidewalk Days...underway in downtown Moose Jaw.  That reminds me of one of my favourite stories.  I've told it before.

It was years ago now, before our new, downtown arena was finished.  I had a passionate and animated conversation with a long time acquaintance who told me he would NEVER go to an event at Mosaic Place.  "Parking" was the issue.  This intelligent  man said it was a mistake to build it downtown.  He liked the way the Civic Centre was set up with plenty of parking nearby.

I tried to explain how it would work.  How we'd never have to face traffic line-ups after hockey games and concerts and that we wouldn't have to walk much further than we did before.

He wasn't buying it.  I was frustrated.  

Then, he says "Hey, maybe I'll see you down at Sidewalk Days?"

I said, "Oh, you're going to Sidewalk Days?"

He says "Ya, tonight...you?"

I said "Nope, there's no parking."

You see what I did there?
