Going to wash the trailer and Walbarnize today.... Been traveling so much for work this spring did not get a chance to touch it. Going to the local town parade but will pass on the fireworks in Boston ... 500,000 people is a little too crowded for me !

Happy 4th - 2007

Having traveled to the White Mountains of NH and the north shore of Boston, we are sitting in our campsite on the Hudson River across from NYC awaiting the fireworks tonight. We have views from the chairs in our campsite of the Statue of Liberty. Hopefully the weather tonight will hold off long enough to allow for the fireworks. Enjoy - and stay safe!

Brad, it sure is a long way from Marietta to NYC, but wow what a view! Should be a good show.

Unfortunately, I am working today, but the time + 1/2 money for working a holiday will go toward a new a/c for my AS. So...sip one for me!

I'm all packed and nearly ready to make an hour journey south, to a great spot on the river. The temps will likely reach 95, which is a far cry from the heat wave here (70), and we'll be able to watch a fireworks show WITHOUT FOG!!!! It will be our first trip in considerable heat without AC, so I hope the fans and new awning will help us fog babies survive!

It will also be my 2 year old's first fourth for fireworks, that should be awesome! Of course I bought lots of decorations for the airstream - our neighbors, whom we're meeting there, left a day early just to decorate!

Happy independence day & God bless America!!

I looked at your website, very nice stuff. I also have some great stuff from the Arches.

It's good to hear from you guys way down in the south part of Texas. (9 years in Dalhart) Hope you have a good shoot today.

1. Enjoying the new working dump valves in the Sovereign (as of 7 PM last night).

2. Living in Palmer Lake, "the best small town fireworks in Colorado." We started closing the streets last night to try and control the crowds that show up. It takes several hours for people to leave, afterwards, and we have only about 2,000 population. You still have to go to the Post Office to get your mail.

3. Calling my Dad to celebrate the fact that he was shot down on July 4th, 1944 and spent a couple of months evading the Germans in Normandy, finally repatriated by a Canadian half-track crew. In that time he ate dinner with German officers on more than one occasion and was interrogated by the SS, but successfully maintained his identity as a deaf/dumb Belgian migrant farm laborer. We spent the summers in the mid-50s with the French resistance families who saved him. It was wonderful.

You'd think this would have slowed him down. But no. He spent a year in Korea and rescued 20 Marines out of the frozen Chosin Reservoir, then a tour in Vietnam at Long Bien, right next to me when I was a Bien Hoa!

The fourth is always a special day.

That lake community looks just like the one in northern NJ my family has had a summer house since the 30's when soon after it was developed. Many many great times there - my mother at 85 still spends the summers there...

We were going to a 4th breakfast and 4th of July ceremony at Lynn's church 'retreat' near by then drive the convertible back to our little community's, Pleasant Valley, and enter the parade. I had all the flags and swags ready to go but it was very warm (maxed out at 100) so we decided to stay at home and continue to pack for our weekend camping trip begining Friday morning. Our daughter and family will join us driving up from Oakland. We did that and are ready to go tomorrow but our reservation says Friday. But we may be able to stay past Monday. We will be at 7000' in the Sierra, hopefully cooler. This evening I settled in and watched the Macy's Fireworks on TV. When the kids lived nearby we used to pile into the convertible and drive the short journey to Tahoe and watch the pyrotechnics over the water. The Macy fireworks made me feel proud. Of our USA and for having worked for Macy's for 50 years.

Neil and Lynn.

Neighborhood stuff

Alameda has a classic parade that goes through town. We did the usual trio of parade, BBQ, nap, then fireworks, but Oakland cancelled the show at Jack London, so we opted for the former Naval Air Station. My husband remembered his days on the USS Missouri and the USS Samuel Gompers, and we saw some fireworks far away, not many. We lit sparklers and kept it safe, remembering those in Tahoe who lost their homes (but lives were spared, thanks to the firefighter heroes).

The Airstream frame made a perfect pizza plaza for the kids watching the neighborhood adult foursquare smackdown in the street. Serious calories were burned today!

I love my house, neighbors, neighborhood, city, state and country.
