    Default July 4th Celebration!

    We wish everyone a very happy Independence Day! I know that last year we had a real celebration as a nation and there are many detractors out in the open this year.

    We still have a LOT to be thankful for and many blessings and liberties... even as they are being assailed by the Left.

    We can't let that get us down and let them win. We need to keep the faith and support each other and join forces to retake our country and protect what our forefathers risked everything to give us.

    We are very thankful for what we have and keep standing up for Freedom and ALL of our RIGHTS.

    I'm starting this new thread to also post about my new flag pole and get the discussion out of our humor thread.

    Now I need to get out and mow the lawn before it starts raining again. We have rain every day for the next week and Elsa will add to that around Wednesday.

    I hope that everyone can celebrate this birthday of our great nation... safely, too! Watch those fireworks and be careful! I keep thinking about trying to cobble a "boom" together, but I don't have any ingredients for that and want to be safe!

    God Bless America and God bless you all!

    Wynn & Desiree



    When I get some wind, I'll try to post some pictures of our flag pole!

    I wonder what other's do to celebrate our nation's birthday? She's 245 years old today, who would have thought?

    Last night we went to the Blossom Music Center to listen to the Cleveland Orchestra, followed by a pretty decent fireworks display. About 20,000 others in attendance(!)

    Today the family is coming over for a cook-out, inspite of the fact that my club has a Steel Challenge scheduled and open trap practice.

    Our flag is out now. Always surprised how few in the neighborhood do that.

    One of our momma's brought her new baby for some feed, dad came by a few minutes later. Baby and dad were nosing each other, never seen that before. We have several that are regular everyday visitors.

    Nice. I love to see the critters. We see a lot when we go to SW Colorado and visit my wife's folks. They live in the mountains east of Durango and we see deer everywhere... sometimes Elk.

    We started off cloudy here and I think it's supposed to rain in a few hours, but the sun is in and out now and my neighbor's cutting his grass. I managed to get mine done yesterday between sprinkles and rain. The grass didn't clump as badly as I feared, but I did have to kneel down and scrape the grass and dirt from the mower deck. It was substantial and I cleaned all of my implements, throwing the dirt onto the stump hill that I'm trying to get covered with grass.

    I'm still waiting for some wind to take pictures of the flags.

    It's a quiet Fourth here, so far, but will be noisy and a fireworks show by the neighbors on the river below us. Nothing is supposed to bang, but sometimes theirs rival the professional shows. I love those mortar tube things. I bought some one year and really liked them... the thunk and then a humongous explosion and bursts!

    I guess I could get out my Vietnam pen flare launcher with some UHF CB cable fittings on the end that allows me to bust a 209 primer, but that's kind of pitiful! I did that last year, I think... maybe for New Years... popped 4 primers.

    I hear one or two bangs in the distance at midnight, but that was it.

    83 degrees and waiting for the rain. I'm so glad I got the mowing and several other chores out of the way yesterday... rain off and on for the next week.

    We’re making apple pie and I may have some hot dogs. Just need baseball and Chevrolet and it’ll be complete. For those who remember the ‘70s TV commercial.
    A corrupt government tends to be well protected by a thin white line of bureaucracy.

    Got a shot of Dad when he came back for seconds. He's sprouting some pretty nice antlers, will be fun to see how far they go.
