The SaskTel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival started this past Thursday and it looks like it is going to be a lot of fun. It makes downtown Saskatoon look like one big party, with people everywhere. On the weekend one thing that happened struck me as being very uniquely Saskatoon. I could not get a parking space near where I was playing so I dropped off most of my equipment on a corner and went and parked the car about a block and a half away
After parking the car I walked back and all my equipment was where I had left it. People were everywhere walking by it and all of a sudden it occurred to me. Only in Saskatoon can you leave a bunch of equipment on the street corner and come back to found it untouched, unstolen. What a great place to live.
