Whatever you do to celebrate have a great 4th!
Yesterday was the 4th of July and we did 4th of July-ish stuff. We swam in the pool, we cooked out.
Cooked out, not barbecued. Every time I turned on the tv yesterday I got the ‘all across America people will be barbecueing’ speel and then the film showed some guy throwing a burger on the grill. This is -NOT- barbecue. Barbecue involves sauces and rubs and slow cooking/basting. Tossing a piece of meat on the grill is -grilling-, not barbecue.
Having said that, we did not barbecue. (grin) We had burgers, smoked sausage and cold watermelon. Later we had ice cream. (essential for the 4th) Once it got dark, we hosed the front lawn down and Kahuna shot fireworks (we had some really cool ones this year) while the ‘Bit and I ran around with our sparklers.
I have a Cards game saved on Tivo I wanted to watch but Kahuna thought grilling and fireworks were enough ‘guy’ things for one day. (how can he not like baseball??)
I cut him some slack because he has been pretty guyish lately. His brother and sister-in-law are having a baby this fall and she told me they are naming her (the baby) Shelby. I tell Kahuna this and he gets this odd look on his face, then smiles and says “Oh cool, like the Mustang”.
*pounds head on desk*
Gotta go, I have sparkler bits to clean up from the porch.
