Happy Indepence Day...

It's Independence Day here in the states. A day we like to have parades, cookout and shoot off illegal fireworks (looks towards neighbor's house). At my house we will be lazy because it's too hot to do much but jump in the pool. I might talk the boys into going to see the fireworks - there's a place we can see 3-4 different fireworks shows across the valley. Much of this depends on the weather since our monsoon season has started.

Those of you that celebrate today, I hope you have a wonderful day with family and friends. Good reading to everyone!


  1. Hope you're having a great day today, Leslie! I'm going for a BBQ and later to watch the fireworks on the Hudson River. :)

  2. Hils ~ That sounds like fun! Hope you have great fireworks weather. :)

  3. Happy Independence Day Les! hope you had a good time :)

    I don't get the fireworks in the States... How can it be legal to sell them, but illegal to fire them?!?

  4. Nath - Only in some places is it illegal to set them off. Other places, like in the southeast, you can buy them & set them off. Here in the west, the threat of wildfires is usually high so it can be very dangerous.

    This year the local Sam's club was selling them but posted a sign stating that they are illegal to set off within our city limits. LOL Makes no sense to me.

  5. Hi Leslie! Hope you and your family had a nice 4th of July.
