Or, as the kids used to say, “Happy Gloria’s Fourth!” The fourth WHAT Gloria was on, deponent sayeth not.
We’re having a kid parade with pets and red wagons at 10 AM over at the park. Last night the University of Texas at Dallas had their fireworks show. Lucky it was timed to go between the rain showers for which we are so grateful. Tonight most cities will hold THEIR fireworks displays.
It’s easy to forget WHY we have all the fireworks and picnics and fun. Today, take a moment to think of the Revolutionary War and the sacrifices made and what all our forebears went through to give us the world we have now. You know–the one we are so busily breaking. (sigh)
The kids in our old neighborhood (on Melrose) wanted to show their patriotic spirit. The yucca plants (or Century plants, or whatever these are) had just stopped blooming before the rains arrived, so the kids decided to jazz them up.
