4th of July

The 4th was always one of my favorite holidays. I remember going to the gas station as a child, and getting a bottle of JOLT cola to shoot bottle rockets out of. Here in St. Louis county you can't shoot off fireworks, but at the county line on I-44 into Jefferson county it's like the Las Vegas Strip of Fireworks stands, hillarious.

So, for all who care to read, here's some 4th of July favorites:

Jimi Hendrix, Star Spangled Banner
Ray Charles, America the Beautiful
Bruce Springsteen, Born in the USA

The Sandlot
Independance Day

Smoke Bombs
The Lil' Green Tanks (my personal favorite, see above)

Homemade Ice Cream

Not-So-Favorite Things About 4th of July:

Barking Dogs
Burning your hand
The cheap wicks fireplace stands give you

So here's to a happy 4th of July to everyone, especially folks overseas who can't be with their families.
