I hope you're having a great Fourth of July, enjoying the best of summer and the blessings of family. Our Independence Day begins with a parade and ends with fireworks. In between, there's barbecue and ice cream and leftover birthday cake. These are pictures from last year's parade.

|Seeing the band reminds me that I marched in this parade as a high schooler. In full uniform. No t-shirts and shorts for us, (Kids today don't know how lucky they are.)|
|Politicians, incumbent and wannabe, are always represented.|
|Christopher Elf is a regular at the parade.|
|We view the parade from the lawn of the armory. |
The soldiers park their equipment and let the kids climb on - like this tank.
God Bless America!
