Thanks to D for the tag above. This and that, and hockey! Due to the washout in western Pa. today, there won't be fireworks tonight. All events have been rescheduled for this weekend. LOL...shhh...I hate fireworks because I hate the noise. I'm the wuss you see plugging their ears.
I did manage to get the ribs on the grill during one brief moment when the rain stopped. Did I mention I'm beginning to hate rain with a passion?
The 4th of July, or Independence Day, is a celebration in the USA. Sort of awkward since we have such good friends in the UK. I tend to use July 4th as the day to celebrate and reflect upon the freedom that we enjoy as Americans.
It hardly seems like it's been 30 years since the bicentennial. I was 22 yrs old at the time. I'm sure many were very small or not even born yet. Time flies by so fast. I have many keepsakes in my attic, which are probably worthless, from that year.
Hope everybody has a safe holiday today. Watch out for the other drivers who may have celebrated too much and don't have enough sense to give up the keys. Be careful with the fireworks, if you're doing any at your BBQ's.
