Hope y'all had a wonderful fourth of djooo-lie. Here are snippets of mine:
An 11-year-old proudly driving the big boat. Burgers and dogs on the grill. Bottle rockets on the lawn at sunset. Cousins crowded together on the couch. A pontoon boat ride. Late-night fireworks. Cold beer. A light breeze. No worries.
A big, long, husky, deep sleep.
Slow awkening. Breakfast at 10. A plan for another long boat ride up the lake, scheduled for "whenever."
The "maybe movie." Scheduled for.......you got it...........whenever.
More fireworks tonight, of the backyard variety. Somebody in my family took a trip to PA for colorful and possibly dangerous explosives. The two 18-year-olds and the 16-year-old nephew are really and truly looking forward to tonight. They get to be a part of the launch crew. Almost adults.
Pictures later, if I have the energy for it. This vacation thing is exhausting.
