Here they come The boys in the bright white sports car


It started last night and will continue a week after the 1st I know it! It's like cherry bomb central, no pretty light show just CRASH BANG BOOM WHIZZZZZZ noise.
The patriotism will continue at a later date.

Lest you think I'm all grouch and no game, we did attend a lovery all day & evening Q today replete with hula-hooping and bag-piping cuz you really can't beat that combo. I did have a weak moment & bummed a smoke off the bagpiper. Hey, if he can blow those mother-effers with smokers lung I figure one ain't gonna kill me.
Even though the 4th Corona would have gone done swell, best to leave apres kiddie meltdown. Plus the addition of vodka punch, something really fruity in a coconut and a handful of Doritos was, in hindsight, not a good idea.

Furthermore, in my sugar and alcohol induced headiness, I seem to have invited various groups of people over for the next three nights. Tomorrow will be spent cleaning the house and cursing myself.

P.S Yes, I cannot find a template that doesn't drive me mental so I will need to obsessively rotate through them all until I pony up and pay someone to change it for me. Sorry!

Ha! Same here- people spend the WEEK up to fourth of july attempting to blow their fingers off every night. No sleep for my young'uns...

I throw our fourth of july party at the fireworks place. Get there at 5pm, stake out a huge space with blankets, and make people meet us there. Paper plates and beer from the can. No muss, no fuss.

Happy Canada day!

Don't sweat the template thing, it adds to the interest of visiting.

Ah the joys of slight over indulgence. And the bad part about it is, of course, that you've done it to yourself. You can't really blame anybody. And that sucks.

Ugh. There have been fireworks galore out here. I can't wait until they run out. I mean, come on . . . midnight fireworks. On a Sunday night. Ugh.

I'm so with you on the template... I will be messy with mine for the next couple of days too.

Gotta love fireworks... we'll be watching a few this weekend too.

ugh. the 4th of july is friday and my neighbors have been shooting off fireworks for the last week. I'm about ready to bust a cap (not that I would even know how to bust a cap, but it sounded rather tough).

Happy Canada Day to you! Ours is coming up in a few days... best be getting some festive clothes for the girls. Fireworks around us are illegal... though you'll always see a big light show somewhere.

BTW - I've enjoyed watching your template change daily... I always wonder what color I'm going to see next! :)
