And the Holiday Weekend Begins!

Celebrate the 4th of July.


Enjoy the fireworks which commemorate the way our country began and the independence our forefathers earned.

This is also the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg.  Was it a turning point in the Civil War? Volumes have been written about the first days of July 1863.

No matter though, it is time for celebration and a parties. This year, since the holiday is on Thursday, we effectively get a four day (plus) weekend. Enjoy the weekend and be safe.

Have some fun and take the Independence Day Trivia quiz. I took it and got 10 out of 11 correct.

I am doubly blessed because before the weekend is over, I expect to be on a beach somewhere in Florida erasing all of the stresses of life by slipping into the Atlantic Ocean surf.

It is a bit disconcerting that I am leaving for such a long time, I am just beginning to play respectable racquetball and am seeing the ball and reacting to it better than I have in a very long time. I will get to start over in August.

But how can vacation be bad?

And how can getting away from the daily grind for relaxation be bad?

Or even, getting away from the unnumbered series of house projects be bad?

It isn't.

Celebrate! Enjoy, Travel and Relax.

That is what i am going to be doing for the next few weeks.
