In our younger years we would have been working on the 4th of July.
In our older years a day at the lake with a picnic was nice, but with the jet stream funneling down smoke from the forest fires in Canada and causing limited visibility…we will stay put with the air conditioning on.

The haze hung heavy in our yard all day long. The same is forecast for today. The Fargo and Detroit Lakes air quality stations were both reporting "unhealthy" levels at 2 PM Friday afternoon. My eyes were itchy…and it smelled like a forest fire out there.

Steve and Jo came over last night and we played a couple of games of Golf ( a card game) and listened to some oldies…with our usual “Who sang that or what is the name of that song…what year was that anyway?”
Fireworks started last night…people down at the lake are celebrating early. Chance is not impressed with their noise and has to be coaxed to go outdoors. Oh well in a day or two the noise will be over… Far Guy took his vehicle in for an oil change yesterday across from the car dealership was a fireworks sales tent…and people were out front setting off fountains of fireworks…they must hire real smart help.
