The Fourth of July

July Fourth, two hundred and thirty-six years after our first Fourth. What will we be doing on this day? Thinking about what it means to be an American, to be living in freedom, safety, and prosperity; having a steak and potato dinner; watching the fireworks as the Boston Pops plays in Boston Harbor; waiting out the days before our impending trip to South Dakota. “Impending” is such a dark word to describe our trip. Sounds like someone dying, or a dark storm cloud on the horizon. But we’ll go and it will be all right, but I’ll be anxious to return after only two or three days. Need to get back to see the kids, Squeakie and Charlie, need to get back to watch all the Olympic drama in London, need to see if Tiger can win the Open. So much to do, so little time.
