Happy 4th

Here it is, 4th of July again.

I've always enjoyed 4th of July. When I was a kid in Florida there was always a parade and a festival. The festival had lots of booths, games, prizes, candy, you name it. I guess pretty much every one who grew up in a small town had this experience.

For the past 3 years now, I've spent 4th of July at Deep Creek Lake, MD. Shayna's family rents a house for the week and they invite us. It's always fun and I enjoy it..but it's not like when I was a kid and I got to go to the parade and festival.

Part of me sometimes wants to go back to that little town of Sebastian, FL. Just to see what it's like now. I know it's a lot different though. Last time I was there, there was tons of construction as well as a super walmart (and you havn't arrived until you have a super walmart)

Enough of my meanderings, I'm sure you have plenty of better things to do than read about childhood 4th of July memories.

Here is to everyone having a safe and happy 4th. Especially to those in service and those who are now out. Thank you for your sacrifice. Without you, I wouldn't have those memories.
