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 Lil' Green Tanks (my personal favorite, see above)
Homemade Ice Cream
Not-So-Favorite Things About 4th of July:
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.
