Another fourth gone by
Most of the day while folks were picnicking, I was just putzing around the house. Catching up on things. Not that I don't like a holiday, but since I don't have to go to work daily, a holiday just means that the places I usually go were closed.
No lunch program for seniors. No studio to go be creative in clay. No church activities. So I thought a while of going to see the fireworks in the evening. Yes I had a hamburger, and fresh tomato slices, and a bottle of Highland Brewery's Gaelic Ale, a bit of a celebratory dinner!
But as I watched evening shows on TV, the rain came through. Thunder boomed as if it wanted to compete with fireworks! It was cleared out by full dark at 9:30, and I heard the first boom of a firework going off. They usually last less than an hour - the professional ones anyway from downtown Black Mountain. When I stepped outside though the high humidity and remaining heat told me I'd rather stay in and watch a nice 2 hour show (America before Columbus, a rerun from 2009) on the National Geographic channel..and be air conditioned!
