The 4th was over for me some time ago (quiet, since when you're overseas
there's not a lot of hoo-ha about a strictly American holiday <g>), it's
9pm on the 5th here. But happy 4th to those just getting started!
Things were really "popping" here in Baja.... of course, fireworks of just about
any kind are legal and the locals don't need much of a reason to make the place
look like Baghdad being attacked.. lol
We were planning a quiet night at home but got dragged to a neighbors house for
It was kinda nice to pig out on gringo food and watch the fireworks... (and hear
the sirens, of course.. lol)

well happy 4th to everyone. things were so crazy round here i didn't get to
post the usual holiday greeting glad Larry picked up the slack though
we didn't do our usual 4th trip, my wife wanted to go to her best friends
pool party so that's what we done the first part of the day. then round 6
we hooked the boat up and went to watch the fireworks from the water on
Tobosofkee. (they shoot them off from one of the rec parks out over the
water, the boat is the best place to be if you ask me. they go off right
over top of you that way *grin*)
since we left late instead of at 10 am like usual to go tube and grill out
ect. we decided to use the liberty instead of the truck because we knew
the boat launch area was going to be extremely crowded. and i have to say
the liberty did extremely well for a little truck. it handled the 24'
pontoon as well as any little truck had before. drug it up from a stop
faster than my grandmother's F150 could, and held 75mph on the flats like
it was nothing.
all in all it was an hour and 20 min on the highway that took
a little less than a 1/4 of a tank in fuel. I'd say we done alright. and
really enjoyed the fireworks show. the boys were sacked out by the time we
got back though.
Happy 4th. In Dallas this year we didn't have to worry about fires
started from fireworks. Everything is very moist. It has rained at
least 50 out of the last 60 days. Lakes, rivers and creeks are
overflowing. My lawn is dying from too much water. The mosquitoes are
INSANE. They literally dive bomb.
Just last year, we were worried about the ongoing drought. We wished
for rain ... and boy did we get it.
On the positive side, for the first time since I can remember, we have
yet to hit 100 degrees. Usually that starts in April or May. In fact,
I think we have only had a handful of days over 90.
