Independence Day

IMG_2656IMG_2650Taking a leaf from the pages of my past I have been grilling hamburgers and hot dogs all afternoon to serve with homemade cole-slaw and potato salad. I remember as a child how exciting the Fourth of July was as we anxiously awaited sundown so; that we could ignite sparklers, firecrackers, Roman candles and those neighborhood dad’s who would cross state lines to purchase M-80’s made the season explosive for all the kid’s. For those of us who are not fortunate to live close to a “fireworks stand”, the Internet has made purchasing for the private consumer a bit easier.

Today is Independence Day and to those of us who call America home, let’s come together in celebrating her 241st birthday!

Celebrate the Fourth safely,
