Holiday Weekend

Have a safe and happy holiday.
Do you have a family tradition or special plans for this long 4th of July weekend?

Usually a very casual cookout but my sons are all working different shifts so I'm not sure.

We'll watch the fireworks of course and I usually turn on the t.v. for the fireworks from Boston (with the Pops) and San Francisco.

I leave the highways to the fools on holidays.

For me, July 4th would normally mean spreading a blanket at RibFest in Naperville, Illinois, eating BBQ and listening to the bands on the main stage, waiting for the fireworks.

Of course, the 4th is not a holiday in Belgium, so we will be doing nothing.

Have a great 4th and enjoy the festivities wherever you may be!

We are planning a trip to a local state park for a picnic/rally/protest against drilling in the Gulf of Mexico unless it rains and it looks like it will. We'll probably picnic at home and enjoy the day off just hanging out. Hope you have a good one.

PoP, Have a wonderful holiday.

The only thing we do every year is make time to watch 1776. It's a musical so your history of the declaration is easy to take while still being very patriotic.

Everything else can vary. This year it will be

Taste of Tacoma
Painting a Bedroom
Raniers Baseball & Fireworks

Love that photo Pop. We'll be laying in the sand, listening to the band, and watching the fireworks over the ocean.

We will be staying home with our golden retreiver who does't like all the loud bangs and booms that go this time of year.I will read the Decleration of Independence again paying particular attention to reasons why we had enough of King George. Some of the reasons the founding fathers were mad at the government of time are again true.

Just realized. Fortunately the anti desecration of the flag amendment didn't pass or that poor girl would be nude.

I have a tradition of staying home and being kept awake by young guys in the neighborhood setting off firecrackers sometimes loud enough to make me jump. Traditionally lasts about three days, then for the rest of the summer - I guess they keep a cache for future use - I jump out of my skin on random nights as the young patriots continue to celebrate after enough beer, I think.

So far, this tradition has lasted about 3 years - ever since moving here. But it feels like more!

I'll be thinking about our troops and the sparklers that they will have to be dealing with. And then the innocent Iraqis who have fireworks thrust on them needlessly. I'll probably watch a netflix movie to the sounds of "rockets bursting in the air"...and those dreadful chery bombs...hands over ears.

I like that picture! I'l bet it aroused a couple of salutes from the male folk. Fireworks are kinda small around here and I seem to be less patriotic these days, not that it isn't still a great country. I think there's hope for it... maybe. I also like to stay in when there's going to be gunfire. (Yeeehaww!!)

I'll be working every day. Partly self-employed... that's the life... but working with a cat on my lap, and maybe a glass of wine for refreshment.

I'll ignore the holiday to the best of my ability. Currently in NYC so I will visit numerous museums and immerse myself in art so as to drown out the masses and their petty concerns.

I will be protecting my dog Ginger from our neighbors blowing up the neighborhood with the biggest, baddest fireworks around. And when I say fireworks - I mean small city kind of fireworks. It’s quite a show - and lasts all weekend. Then there’s the band that plays every Southern Rock song in creation - with an especial addiction for 'Free Bird' which they bust out about the time they are all too drunk for their fingers to find the strings. It’s actually kinda cool - except for one very unhappy puppy, poor thing. She doesn’t do loud noises. Outside of that we have massive amounts of yard work to be done – so I don’t expect this mini-vacation to be very restful – but it will be satisfying to bring some order out of chaos. Happy 4th of July everyone! Have a safe and happy holiday.

I will be at work all that day, so I will settle for a nice sandwich for dinner, maybe some salad to go with it and some ice cream for dessert while watching the Boston Pops concert.

Nice picture at the top of the post. I would say she's cute, but that would mean expressing desire for someone who is probably long dead.

Love that photo! I will be toiling away on the 'puter, writing scathing posts about the Decider-in-chief and his asshat minions..

Thanks for stopping by my fluff blog..I also have a political one if you care to check it out.

Is that Madonna?

I'll be celebrating a four-day break from school, although it seems studying the muscles of the human and cat body are in the cards for me.

Have a GREAT one, Patricia!
