Happy Independence Day, ‘Mericans!

I’ll bet you all had the day off.

Brits have been nice about it, actually. Everyone’s wished me a happy Fourth. Somebody asked if we were going to have turkey tonight, which tickled me. Like the only thing Americans can think to do on our special holidays is eat turkey. I think that might be the same person who asked if we give each other Thanksgiving Day cards.

We’re having hamburgers and beer tonight. That’s as much America as I have the energy for today. Hope you’re having a great one!

But it won’t be American beer.

It’ll be good beer.

/Even if it’s Budweiser, it’ll probably be Czech made Budweiser which is phenomenal.

//I love this county, but we can’t do beer for crap. All the “craft beer revolution” did was displace all the good imports with over-hopped IPAs.

And Happy Independence Day to you all, too!

No, I did not get the day off…I’m RETIRED! YAY!

I had bacon cheeseburgers for lunch while watching Wimbledon. The only way the day could get significantly better is if I were to see a headline saying ANTHONY FAUCI DIES UNEXPECTEDLY.

Uncle Al, did he unexpectedly explode like a grand finale.

And Sweasy, hot dogs! Tater salad, mac and cheese and then you can have a burger. 😀

Oh, here’s a joke a Canadian once told me…

Why is American beer like making love in a canoe?

Because it’s ……. close to water.

Happy Independence Day, Stoaty.

It’s the third night of fireworks in my rural subdivision. The county banned flying fireworks, but we recently had 3.5 inches of rain—a local geographic anomaly—so my neighbors have ignored the ban. No fireworks for me. My mother was a nurse.

JavaMan and I ate at Rosa’s Cantina today. Tacos al Carbon for me (just enough steak to satisfy me), and the LARGE margarita—please and thank you. Frozen. My tonsils got the cramps twice, and I loss vision in my right eye when the optic nerve froze (I kid). But deliciously tart. I don’t like them sweet. I brought home the left over tortillas and we’ll have breakfast tacos in the morning. It doesn’t matter what you order, you get freshly made tortillas.

I can still hear the fireworks going off around my neighborhood. As I drift off to slumber.
