It’s the 4th of July and I am at home with Connor, who is deathly afraid of fireworks and is drugged to the gills. He’s joined by his puppy-pal, Halas, who is a bit better with fireworks.
I am pirating a signal from a neighbour’s unsecured wireless service, and it’s nice to have some access – even if it is limited.
This morning, I went to a local parade right in one of the downtown neighbourhoods. Even though it’s in the middle of the city, it had that small –town feeling.
After the parade, there were games for the kids, including egg races, limboing and water balloon tossing and hula-hooping contests. Everyone dresses for the day in red, white and blue and decorates their houses accordingly.
I hope you had a safe and happy holiday!
