Travel and Edits

             Since my post last week the Fourth of July occurred, and so did my younger grandson Bennett’s birthday. That meant a trip to Indiana to visit with family!  I watched a very long and delightful July 4th parade in Crown Point with my husband, older son and older grandson. Bennett and his mom, my d-i-l, are active in local Cub Scouts so they were on the Cub Scout float!

             Lots of birthday celebrations for Bennett, and then I returned home to delightful greetings and hugs from my dogs! 

            Now I’m reviewing what will hopefully be the last draft of the edits I’ve been working on. As long as I use my laptop computer, things are almost fine, notwithstanding the technical difficulties I previously had. Almost. 

            But I’m under deadline for that, so I’d better get back to it now!

What a fun way to spend the 4th of July!! I love parades. In the little Texas town where we lived, there was always a 4th of July parade, followed by Fun Days at the Park, which included armadillo races, trying to catch a greased pig and best of all, watching little kids at the stick horse rodeo. They rode around the arena, bucking and throwing themselves around -- hilarious!! And of course, fireworks at the end of the day.

Good luck with the edits and hope no more technical difficulties.

I'll be staying in with the a/c going -- lowest daytime temp this week is predicted to be 111 -- yuck!!

Have fun with the pups.

Your events after the 4th of July parade in your Texas town sound like lots of fun, Patty. Armadillo races? Why not? And kids performing a rodeo sounds delightful.

Thanks for your good wishes, and I always have fun with the pups!

It's supposed to get into the 90s here today, not comfortable but not as hot as your weather. AC sounds like a good thing!

It sounds like a fun way to spend the fourth. I bet your grandson loved being in the parade.

He definitely enjoyed the parade, Betty--as well as all the birthday celebrations!
