Happy Independence Day, my fellow liberated colonials. Which I guess includes my British neighbors now.

Early afternoon was lovely here, which makes a great change (we’ve had the most miserably cold, gray Summer so far). We sat in the garden with a couple of books and a bottle of wine and grilled burgers and corn on the cob and hummed Stars and Stripes Forever.

And then fell asleep, because wine, and had terrible dreams, because sleeping in the daytime.

Hope you had a wonderful Fourth. I’ve vicariously enjoyed the parades in my FaceBook feed today.

You remember that pic, of course, Weasel Attempts to Murder Woodpecker. From the header of the photographer’s Twitter feed, it looks like someone made him a ceramic one.
