I do not know what your family traditions are for the 4th of July holiday, but I know this cartoon is very appropriate for ours:
I have to tell you that the 4th of July has probably always been my favorite holiday. Yes, I suppose that is due at least in part to all the fireworks, but a couple of years ago when it was very dry and the fire hazard was very high we did no fireworks and still had a great time with family. That is what it is really all about–family and the celebration of the freedom we have in this great country!
My family is planning to do all that and more again this Independence Day. If we get a chance we will try to dry off a fish or three while we are at it. Hope your celebrations are just as enjoyable. While you are at it, remember what we are celebrating! God Bless America!
Oh, and for the record, I and my cousins still have all of our fingers! However, my uncle did get covered in apple sauce once after a little green apple somehow exploded!
