I have to admit last July Fourth was one of the worst days of my adult life. To start off, I ran out this cute Lisa Burton poster. I expected some cool comments, but the afternoon failed in the worst way. It still haunts me to this day.
I want to leave all that behind. No more talking about it, no more dwelling upon it.
We’re going to try it again. Have a great Fourth of July, and be careful with those fireworks.
I have a large international following. In case you missed it on all the social media, today is a holiday in the USA.
Old What’s Her Face* took the grandkids to the water park. At some point, a man decides what isn’t a good time and bows out. That’s what I did today. There was a time when such things were fun, but I’m just not into it any more.
I decided to budget my alone time on three projects. I need to keep moving forward on getting Arson edited. I could probably get close to finished this weekend, but I’m being sociable despite bowing out of the water park.
I also want to spend some time on act one of my next story. I’m still trying out names and have changed one about five times. Nothing seems to fit for this character — yet. I’ve added a bunch of photos to my story board.
This afternoon is going to be a big barbecue, followed by setting off all our illegal fireworks. Idaho is one of those places where it’s perfectly legal to sell all kinds of fireworks, and legal to buy and own them. It’s just illegal to set them off. I suppose the Legislature thought we were all collectors.
I don’t feel too bad. Our entire neighborhood sounds like a war zone every night for a week before the fourth and two weeks after. Of course the holiday gets the most action. This is going to be a good time with a large chunk of our family in attendance.
Whatever you’re up to, I hope you’re having a great time. For the rest of you Americans out there happy Independence Day.
