The Update On The 4th- In Bullet Points!

1. Ribs came out tender, a little bland, sauce helped alot(which I hate to reley on!).
2. Seafood Boil was lame- shrimp only seafood, with corn, potatoes, and sausage-all boiled not steamed!
3. Rest of food was non descript, not as big a selection as years past.
4. Glorious weather! No rain, light breeze, no bugs, light humidity!
5. Mood was relaxed, with no unhappy kids or adults!
6. One downer that day- best friends expected to show didn't, womans' Mom died night before...
7. Fireworks were great! Lake Association didn't do any, so everyone on lake brought some- going up from every point on the lake!
8. Stuff we brought was excellent, all mortar balls-6 huge ones, 36 smaller which we loaded into a tri tube launcher for geater effect(worked great!).
9. Home by Midnight.
10. Middle of the week 4th with only one day off sucks!

My Lake Association is having their show this weekend so we are celebrating the 4th on the 7th. I'll write about it this weekend.

Food sounds good as he**!!!

Thanks for your son address. He is quite the writer. Like father like son, huh?

Sorry the food wasn't good. Glad the weather was. I was hot and wet here. But it always is...

Mike- Love to hear about your Lake Nukes!. Foods been better... Kid can write, but must make him understand a writer with no readers is like a musician with no listeners. If you have talent and do not share it, we do not need your talent!

Sornie- Rib junkies are as common as hell! The first one is free....
Finn-Please figure out a way to tell me you're hot and wet that doesn't get me hot and wet....
DogB- we are Pyros from Hell! The seafood types around here don't exactly embrace Mussels, clams, oysters, etc. What a wasteland!

Glad your fireworks were awesome. It poured rain in Philly and we stayed in. We do need th rain, so I'm not complaining.

Having Wednesday off was so bizarre. For some reason, I was expceting the Sunday Times, and not the anorexic Wednesday paper. Then when i went back to the office on Thursday, I kept thinking it was Monday. It was like workweek "jet lag."

Urban V- Sorry the "Cradle of Liberty" let you down! You give me a feeling that you are OK no matter what happens! Pretty cool!
Snow-Imagine having your annual review on July 3rd! Wasn't the most productive dude Thurs, or Fri!

We at least you had awesome fireworks, it was drizzling here, so I stayed home.
Wasn't that a weird feeling, a Thursday that felt like Monday?!
