Setting off party poppers from Grandma R's deck. There were soooooo many party poppers!
After setting off backyard fireworks- The *ahem* legal kind, unlike many of our neighbors, we climbed up the roof of the shop and watched the big display. I brought a radio along so we could even listen to the prerequisite accompianment of Neil Diamond belting out "They're Comin' to America!" and Lee Greenwood singing, "I'm Proud to be an American."
Pocatello recently lost one of our own soldiers in Iraq. Here's hoping that by the 4th next year, we'll be at peace, and the soldiers (including my brother) will be home safe and sound.
