I hope you all had a fourth filled with family, food, and flames. Bonfires and lit candles can really make a night perfect. Fireworks exploding overhead helps too. We set up big time this year with cozy quilts and a packed dinner with cokes fresh out of a glass bottle. We even brought a bug repellent candle which our neighbors were all jealous of. We only had to move once due to some yahoo who decided to park in front of us. We got a lot of sympathy from our neighbors but none from the inconsiderates who parked in our view. It was alright though. Mom and I adjusted and still had a pretty good view. Here's to trying to make the best, and sometimes failing, what, perhaps, our young nation may be all about.
