A Great 4th of July After All!

Hurricane Arthur left in time for us on the East coast to have our picnics. The weather was an enjoyable high 70’s vs. the oppressive heat and humidity if the past 3 days. Though there were some gusts, most of the aftermath-winds were gone.

Fortunately, the eye of Arthur was over the Atlantic Ocean. Though it came a little closer than projected, it still was not as bad as some hurricanes; it was not massive. Not that usual that we have one this holiday as most are later in the season.

Glenn did all the grill cooking of hamburgers and hot dogs and cleaned up! He gets an award for that. My daughter, son-in-law, and grandsons helped greatly. Our neighbors came and we had a small picnic but very easy and a pleasant time. I do appreciate to capstone of the holiday today!

I’m thankful for nice neighbors and a great family, as well as, our freedom to enjoy each either in America. It’s the best country in the world.

Happy Birthday, America!
