Happy 4th of July!

By Dave Stuart Jr.

English: Fireworks

My 4th of July will be spent doing the following:

  • Contemplating whether this ridonkulous heat wave is being caused by global warming
  • Installing a broken door, fire alarms, bathroom trim, a dining room light, some doorknobs, and an IKEA couch in our new home
  • Playing with my girls (wife and daughter; daughter #2 is due in 8 days!)
  • Working on grad class work
  • Listening to fireworks exploding in the streets outside my house
Yes, that’s right — no cookout! No intentional viewing of fireworks! I almost feel un-American. 😉
Have a great day!

    We had a similar day. Working on the house, sweltering in the heat, no intentional fireworks – just the ones we saw launched into the treetops by our neighbors. We kept our lawn well-watered.

      Good times, Becky! Your ISI blog looks cool — wish I could have seen your demo!
