Recommended Posts

Just a quick post wishing everybody here a fun and safe 4th!! :D


God bless America! :D


We're going to a friend's house for a potluck and to watch fireworks. The food selection will include brats, hotdogs, ribs, baked beans, baked potatoes, etc, etc.


I'll obviously be drinking Coors Lite from a "cold activated" can! :wacko:


What are you doing on the fourth??? :D

I love Fourth of July parades!! There's one here in Coronado every year that has lots of bands and equestrian groups and enough floats to make it interesting. I may have to make that part of my itinerary tomorrow. :wacko:

Going to a College Grad party tonight.

Tomorrow at my cuz's. :D Wife told me to not max out! :wacko::D:D

Went to the grad party. Amy is a very sweet girl. A daughter of a friend of my cuz. We were getting ready to leave and Amy said "Can you wait a bit?: I said sure. She put her video on. What a great production! Just great pics of her life and near the end she showed pics of me, my wife, and my mom with very sweet comments! Dammit...a tear came to my eye. I guess I never realized how much we all meant to her life. :2cents::D

Congrats Amy!!! May you have a happy life!

Thank you for including us in your life!

"S.O." and I visiting her ex-neighbor - older lady who has out-lived most of her family/friends and surprisingly people like her neice aren't hooking up with her, so we are. She just lives in the basement of her sister-in-law and is getting kinda fragile, so we're gonna grill some burgers and bring em over.


Not checking fireworks, not worth fighting the crowds etc. Have some of my own I brought so we'll have our own little show and get tanked here. :wacko:

Well, living on the coast......we batton down the hatches and hide until it's over!!!!!!! We will stay at the house and have family and friends over, I'm going to fry some fish, boil some shrimp and steam some clams and blue crab(crab pots were nice and full this morning) on the dock. Also, I've cleaned out the massive Igloo cooler, turn on the ice machine, and iced down the wine and beer and sodas. I'll pull the young'ens around on the inner tube with the boat etc.... Then, eat and drink to much.....as usual.

Stopped raining around 5:00, went the the complex where I work in Itasca. Headliner was SmashMouth, and boy were they rough, until the final 30 minutes when they decided to cover some old Van Halen and Beastie Boys...they got a lot better. The best fireworks show I've seen in many, many years.

That's interesting because the fireworks show we saw was only 15 minutes long (down from 30 in past years) and alot of the other fireworks displays around our county were cancelled for lack of funds.
