Happy 4th of July to all...

Cheese omelet for dinner

Then a semi-good, but free cheesesteak

Two bags of Herr’s BBQed chips

And to finish it off, a tub of Rainbow sherbet…


No fireworks here tonight

Though Mother Nature is bringing rain, light

Maybe a few thunder-boomers to give us a fright

Not a good time for flying a kite…


For a holiday it is pretty quiet

Usually the camping kids are making a riot

Not that I am complaining mind you

I like it to be quiet here, no animals acting like they are in a zoo…

Fourth of July, Mallorca, and no one Star & Stripes but the one flying from the rear window of my rental.
People looked at me like I was from another planet, after all they just want a european soccer championship, so, Spaish flag or none.

I find quiet holidays are truly the best kind these days, brother.
But a whole tub of sherbert??!!

At least you got to see some fireworks, even though it was provided by Mother Nature! Better'n nothing! And you didn't have to fight traffic; we did, but it wasn't really too bad once we got past the venue or the stop signs on the way home...LOL We saw some beautiful fireworks last night here in Burleson; it was rather short, too short for my liking, but spectacular! Better than last year's! And next Saturday, a week from today, we're seeing more fireworks! So our celebrating isn't over yet!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

Sounds like my kind of 4th - and natural fireworks! How cool is that? No heat to contend with, no mosquitoes whining in your ears, no traffic (so no extra $$ spent on gas to get there and back, not to mention idling in traffic) - perfect for me. And free food is ALWAYS good. Count your blessings! Well done!

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Sounds like a quiet 4th to me. Here it is fireworks, kids playing in the street tonight setting off fireworks without adult supervision, and picnic of hot dogs, burgers, chips, salads, cake and all. Had a great noisy 4th, but think I'd really like it better on a vacation like you are and a quiet campground.
