Well.... we make "sun Tea". Does that count? Ya know.... we put cold water in an old plastic grape soda bottle (2 litre) then drop in a handful of tea bags - strings, labels and all, then place it on the counter to fester for a few hours. When it's done, we pour it over ice and call it tea.

mmmm sun tea..... sometimes we add whiskey, rum, vodka, triple sec and a splash of Coke, sugar, lemon and mint (all in equal parts) and call it Long Island Iced Tea.

Are you grossed out yet?

Proud of many things

I'm proud to be an American just to start with, but this weekend was just great any way I could cut it.

Number 1 son made the most appropriate decoration an Airstream ever had, and my wife towed my Overlander for the very first time on the way home, and did an outstanding job. And, yes, it's my Overlander, not ours.

I hope everyone else had a great Fourth!

Tom

Happy 4th everyone!

Spent a lot of the day hanging out--in garb--at Mt. Vernon, home of G. Washington. I took pictures and managed to survive my first bayonet charge!

Also one thing to wish--

Happy Birthday, Wally!

We launched off a couple of roman candles in his honor!

TTYL,

Mary

No fireworks for us, we have to stay inside so the dogs can cower under our feet everytime a neighbor sets off a bomb! I have a small, shuddering dog under my desk right now

U C, the TRUE English TEA IS taken quite Seriously, even 2day, it's what us Brits like 2 call part of Our Great British Institution, 3'oclock, IS the official time 4 Tea...but ME...ANYTIME will do, U can't beat a GOOD cuppa char...LOL...
So U enjoy Yrs Janet, & I'll TRY Yr Recipies...FANX...Chris.....
