Always fun to hear how different people in different parts of the country celebrate their 4th of July holiday...how did you spend yours?
We (my Sadie & I) had a nice long walk in the early afternoon (she couldn't go off lead because of the hordes of people...and I mean literally thousands...visiting/playing/barbecuing in and around our normal training area). Followed that with a nice (although short) visit from our son, daughter-in-law and two little granddaughters...then off to a barbecue party at friends'. That was fun spending the time with a nice group of friends, watching the fireworks across the water, enjoying good adult beverages and a tri-tip/ribs/chicken barbecue. And finally shooting off my buddy's miniature cannon (fires a 10 gauge blank)...seriously LOUD!
Got home early enough to still watch some of the bootleg fireworks on our beach from our bedroom window...and to be entertained by the local cops racing around trying to catch all those hardened criminals with the firecrackers, sparklers and bottle rockets (you know who they are: the 6-10 year old kids with their parents). Just a note: illegal fireworks in California (this year especially) aren't a good idea in general, but I'm talking about those who were shooting them off out into the ocean from the beach. Still illegal...but still...
Hope everyone had a safe and fun one, and that the good times continue through the rest of the weekend!
