I’m tired. It feels like the day after a rock concert. My ears aren’t ringing, but I feel drained. Yesterday was July 4th (Independence Day) here in the US. We started off with a BBQ, and then shot off fireworks for almost six hours. It sounded like the whole state was doing the same thing. Pops, rumbles, and flashes from every direction. The weather was nice, there was just enough wind to blow the smoke away, and everyone had a good time. I finally got home at midnight, but didn’t get to sleep until after 2:00. I think I’m going to take a nap.


I borrowed this picture. This was taken at Ft. Vancouver which is right down the street from me.
