I'm taking the day to celebrate my freedom. I will fill it with tradition and in honor of being a free American I will drive an hour on a busy freeway, hope the policeman's radar is broke. Party with some people I do not know and pray they are having a good time. Eat enough food to feed Haiti, play senseless games and enjoy a few beverages. Then to top things off I will deafen myself at the local firework display. What did you say?
Then just before the horses turn back into mice and the coach becomes a pumpkin I will return to the same freeway. I will place myself along side all the other celebrating, free Americans who are just trying to get back home and pray we all have enough stamina for reach our destination.
I wish you all a safe and happy 4th of July or 3rd as the case may be. Come back and visit on Sunday when your head stops throbbing and lets catch up. I'd love to hear about your celebrating, did you see any fireworks?
