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 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.
