I do not have a great deal of time here but I did want to get back to a schedule, so a short post, I hope. A very full schedule is what I’ve had since last posting and today is my holiday, I do love me some fireworks.
I am hoping my American friends all have big plans for the fourth and where you are there will be fireworks. Nothing says ”Independence” like colorful explosives.
A big happy Fourth to you all but I have other news…
Saturday I attended a family reunion at a winery. What a treat to learn someone in my family owns a winery; which sure will be a cost saver with Ms. “Wino” Twister.
There is something to be said about having a few glasses of wine before eating, especially at a family reunion. Have a few more and you won’t even care that crazy aunt Shirley made the “what is it” casserole.
Today I plan on attending the local fourth festivities and yes, capping them with a fireworks display. This year I refuse to be the designated driver. Keeping up with drunks is worse than taking a pre-school group to the zoo. We have a service here “231-TAXI,” so I gave them all cards with the number on it.
I have a special shout out to Nutscell at The Writing Nut and Mask at The Blogger Formally Know AS. They both gave me awards I will pass along in the near future, thank you guys.
In the really near future this blog appearance will be changing. Do not be alarmed if one day you visit and all is not the same. I’m warning you now.
And so my fellow Americans, go forth and celebrate. Remember why we are celebrating and now know, 1776. It seems 48% of Americans did not know we achieved our independence in 1776.
Fireworks to all.
