In our little corner of the world the fireworks start on the 3rd of July,
The parade is on the 4th.
Dear friends and neighbors, Rita and her daughter Christine
live on the parade route. We were invited for a shady spot on their lawn and cool beverages.
I finally met Rita's sister Hope. I was talking her ear off until Rita told me that Hope can't hear. Hope is a sweet adult with Down's Syndrome. I love Down's syndrome souls…
Tonight our town hosts a huge fireworks display from the public golf course. The weather is ideal, the crowds will be large. I want to stay home and knit tonight. Tank is not a fan of fireworks and I want to be home for him.
Neighbors will be shooting off their own fireworks as if we don't have enough professional sparks, until late.
Wow, having worked for years on these Holidays, I can see how exhausting all this fun is. Oh and I have to keep telling myself:
it is only Friday.
