"How do you plan to celebrate the 4th? Is there anything new under the sun?"

  1. Barbecuing, drinking beer, going to the beach, waiting for the fireworks.............is anyone doing anything they are really looking forward to?

    I am working on the 4th, but my co-workers and I have decided to have a pot luck that day. I will be bringing a cake, probably red velvet, decorated in red, white, and blue.

    Other than that, I have no idea...I wish we had a beach to go to to watch fireworks.

    This is the first 4th I have been off in a while, so I have painted about 20 old bowling pins red with a white x on them...think redcoats, and will be giving an impromptu history lesson at the local shooting range, which will be followed by the shooting of said "red coats" with period correct muzzle loading long rifles.
    Ahhhh... the wonder in kids eyes as the big puff of smoke clears and their redcoat has fallen.
    It is a great day to really explain the reasons behind the war for independence and to introduce eager people, yuoung and old alike, to the meaning of the constitution and the joys of target shooting....that will be my day, then a BBQ and some fireworks with the neighbors...everyone is invited.

    Having 90 heatwave + humidity in Philly (NOT my kind weather) so will affect plans.

    Organizer for children's games at community's morning 4th July Parade + cellebration. Afternoon rest. Evening will go to Philly's music + fireworks festival or watch on TV if too hot.

    Hide under my covers with the air conditioner running full blast to avoid the miserable Texas weather...then resurface that evening for the fireworks that usually take place each year here on post. :chuckle

    On second thought...I want some BBQ Ribs, dang it! So...guess hubby and I will find some somewhere...since we don't own a grill, and the last couple's home we went to grilled ribs that ended up tasting like the charcoal fluid. Yuk!!!
