Now, we're getting ready for 4th of July. And boy, is it a job. 4th of July on my block is no joke, in fact, it's an impromptu block party every year. Well, this year, we've decided to make it official and we're having a block party, block party now. Not closing off the street or getting a bouncy house or anything like that, but still. I'm in charge of the baked alaska. Boy, does everyone love a baked alaska. And I sure can make one. But, everyone's got their station, and grills will be going all night. I'm sure more than one grill war will break out. It's a lot of work, but a lot of fun, too, don't get me wrong. I'm not complaining!
We also have wars for the best fireworks. Everyone gets them illegal (I know it's a bad example for the kids, but sometimes, what the heck! It's not like we're buying them drugs) and boy do we have a show. We don't have a local show and no one wants to drive that night. Nevermind that we're drinking--everyone else is too!
I grumble, but I am very much looking forward to the party, especially for the kids.
