Happy Independence Day!

Quote of the Day: “I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.” – Thomas Jefferson (More TJ quotes)

Today was rather boring as far as July 4th usually goes – for the 1st time in all the years we’ve lived here, the sky is dark – there are NO FIREWORKS going off as far as the eye can see (due to the extreme drought / wildfire danger and the resulting bans). So, S. the “pyro” went & bought a huge supply of discounted fireworks KNOWING that they could NOT shoot them off until sometime in the future, lol! I spend a good part of the day culling photos down to make a free printed photo album courtesy of Shudderfly that came with a purchase from several months ago, along with fighting with my computer to get the account and album set up. I saved the incomplete work since it will require a lot more time later to lay everything out right. Anyway, here’s a couple of videos for your July 4th/pyro-fix!
