'And that party a week ago?' Oh yes, I heard that party a week ago. From the amplification I thought it was a concert three blocks away and not a backyard do half a dozen doors down. A concert at Christie Pits would have been safer than a crowd in one of our narrow back yards but, well, with luck *not* their funeral. Mrs was prepared to call the police but her son begged her not to; her son suffered hideously under quarantine, his dad says, so there was a lot of fellow feeling. They stopped at midnight even if the noise by-law says 11, so no harm done.
And then NNDs came out and I ascertained that the opera they were listening to was in fact a bunch of arias and leider, so no wonder I couldn't pin it down.
