Ok, so I have always hated this description and never really “gotten” it. However, it really seems the best description in this situation. Look at the ring my neighbor received from her hubby for their 23rd anniversary. Isn’t it just gorgeous? And the way it sparkles in the sun. Cliff, you have great taste! Marta is one lucky gal!

Our neighborhood had our annual 4th of July BBQ and fireworks show. This just gets to be more fun every year! This year we moved the grills to a shaded driveway and Mike and Joe, with Cliff’s supervision, cooked up a feast! (Joe is my hubby and he is the one in the white T-shirtJ). I know the picture quality is not the best, but I really wanted to share this with you. Soon, it was time to eat!!
The next event was a game of street Badminton What is street Badminton you ask? Well, it means you all stand in the street volleying back and forth and pretend you have a net and that bounces are fine as long as you keep it going. We must be getting quite the reputation in the extended neighborhood and we had several people come walking down the street with chairs to watch the fireworks. One of them even commented that they were told this was the best show in the neighborhood. Of course, I am sure that when there are grown men who think they are still little kids doing the shopping it helps (as does the stand outside of city limits selling all the “illegal” fireworks). I hope you had a safe and fun 4th of July!!
