happy 4th of July!

P1270271rr.jpg Whimsy would much rather chew on her new bandana then wear it.LOL We are trying to 'ignore' the firecrackers that have been going off in the neighborhood all this week. It's insane! So far it seems to be going well. Tonight is going to be the worst...but I think she will be fine. Keeping my fingers crossed.
Have a safe holiday!!

Yes, Happy Fourth of July to Everyone! Great pic of Whimsy! We've got our 4 kids, their spouses (or significant other) plus 5 grandkids coming over for a cookout this afternoon. Then some will go to see fireworks. Don't know that I will do that since tomorrow will be the 4-week anniversary of my recent hip replacement.

Funny story - I am going to rehab twice/week. My therapist is from England, but married to an American. I asked him what a Brit does on the 4th of July. He replied that, since his wife is American, he celebrates with cookouts and fireworks. Then he added that they DO celebrate the 4th of July in England: They call it "Good Riddance Day" LOL.

Ahhhh Whinsy looks adorable! Happy Fourth to you too! I have half a mind (seriously I really do!) to go get some veggie burgers, corn on the cob and the like and get hubby to bar-b-que. There is a free concert in the park tonight, my son is leaving for Scout camp today and this morning hubby is off to play patriotic songs from the hills. Last year some people made a huge hullabaloo about it so lets all hope the man-boy doesn't get himself arrested lol! He is such a patriot!

Happy 4th of July! We have no plans and had a lazy day yesterday as well. We'll go to church tonight since everyone slept in this morning and possibly cook out. We're happy to hang out here with our dogs.

we survived round one of the 4th of july! django heard the fireworks from a far, downtown to be precise and was very calm about it. i had the TV blasting the show i was watching so it was hard to hear the fireworks but no shakes or fear. tonight however, the suburb we live in will have their fireworks, right almost in my back yard. tonight might be a bit more tough but we will keep our fingers crossed.

Beau and Daisy weren't afraid at all! They would look toward them, and sniff the air - but otherwise behaved normally! I was amazed at how stable they were!

I only heard ONE firework set off all night! I think I must be really lucky. My guys don't react much to things like that!
