Happy 4th of July

We celebrated a day early with a trip to town to the candy shop with Jen, Andy and the boys and a quick stop by the grocery store.  Oh my town is a touristy mess..a plethora of cars with different license plates.   Traffic is slow and like Far Guy says you avoid a left hand turn at all costs.

Far Guy went kayaking with Jen.  I started on supper.  We had a picnic late in the day…if the skeeters hadn’t been so bad we could have eaten on the patio…but no one wants to be eaten alive whilst eating.

I served potato salad, baked beans, brats and buns, blueberries, carrots and brownies…an all American 4th of July meal a day early.  We have left overs too so I won’t have to cook on the 4th of July! 

I hope however you celebrate the day that you have a safe holiday.

  2. Happy Independence Day to you and yours, dear Connie. I'm glad to hear Far Guy is feeling well enough to go kayaking. And I love that picture with the blue and white stripes behind the flag. :-)

  6. Happy 4th to you! Glad you are both feeling better. The pickles are done so I'll mow today as it is nice and cool here. This place is like that too...lots of "out-of-towners" golfing, boating and fishing. Me, I just do my regular stuff...every day's a holiday now that I'm retired! LOL!

  7. Happy 4th! Great All American menu. Similar to mine except I'm adding corn on the cob.

  9. This is off the topic, Connie - but a friend of mine who has TN says that a man she knows who also has it says that cinnamon has a lessening effect on his TN. He has it with toast right before a meal. I haven't tried this because have no cinnamon on hand (don't bake anymore) but it is worth a try. Tried to send an email but couldn't make it work! I have TN too by the way.

  13. Sounds like you had a wonderful 3rd, and a nice and relaxing 4th. Did you see any fireworks tonight? We are 9 miles from the border, and I heard what sounded like fireworks long before it got dark, and then the booms really got thick and heavy after dark.
