My daughter and son-in-law had a small gathering of a few friends and family for the holiday.
My Daughter and Son-In-Law had a few friends and family over for a 4th of July barbecue this afternoon. The day was almost perfect for it, it did get up to about 90° but the humidity was low enough that it wasn't a problem. But then later in the afternoon, actually right when the barbecue was ready to be served a thunderstorm rolled in and all of the eating had to be done indoors. But even with that going on I'm still glad I'm somewhere that I didn't have to deal with hordes of people.
I know some folks like to be where the action is, be a part of the crowd, and enjoy being in a large group. But I'm more of a loner and am happiest either by myself or with a couple of people. Which is maybe one of the reasons I gravitated towards being a boondocker, boondocking generally means you're going to be at least somewhat by yourself, except of course in southern Arizona in the Winter and then you have to really work at being alone.
When it gets dark my son-in-law's going to have a fireworks display in the yard for the little kids and that will probably be the only fireworks I get to see tonight. Fireworks don't interest me that much because I grew up in a time when every kid had a pocket full of real firecrackers, not these sissy things they shoot off today, and other fireworks that people can't even buy today. So I kind of got fireworks out of my system because I got to shoot just about every kind of fireworks when I was a kid.
Some of the kids playing indoors.
late in the afternoon the clouds rolled in and sent everybody inside. But as bad as It looks we only got a few sprinkles out of it before it rolled away.
