Happy (Early) 4th of July!

I wanted to wish all those in the U.S. a Happy (and Safe!) 4th of July tomorrow. To all those outside the states, Happy Early Thursday :-)

So originally I asked Maggie if she wanted to pose for a 4th of July picture and write a post. She declined because she is not a fan of the holiday. Well not that’s not entirely true, she loves BBQs, parties, and all the fun stuff, but like many of her canine friends, she is afraid of fireworks. She doesn’t really trust humans to use good judgement, and I have to say, she’s not wrong in that some humans are careless and downright foolish. Wizard and I staying home with Maggie. We’ll make ribs and peach pie, and hang out in the pool.

If you’re celebrating, what are you doing?

And please, Maggie asks that everyone remember their pets on what she has proclaimed to be the scariest holiday of the year.

    Boone and Jake agree with Maggie! We’ll be staying home too. I’ll probably do burgers. No dessert though. Except maybe ice cream. Hrmmm…

    Have a great and SAFE 4th!

    I agree with Maggie ;). The worst thing about this time of year is the dumb people blast them off for over a week and all night long.

    Hubs had his oral surgery yesterday so we will not be doing much. He’s finally understanding he can’t really eat anything that requires chewing. I feel bad for him but I must say he is recovering nicely.

    Ribs, peach pie, and the pool sound wonderful. Any of the kids coming over? I think it will be mac and cheese followed by frozen custard for hubs. No idea what I’ll be having. None of the kids will be here.

    Happy Independence Day! Be safe and have fun :)!

    Silver, that sounds like a great way to celebrate with burgers and ice cream! Wizard asked for ribs, and I felt like making a peach pie, although I have to use frozen peaches because the ones in the store we go to are sad.

    I hope Boone and Jake get through the 4th okay. Maggie thinks they are super smart, and she might have a little crush on them :-)

    You guys have fun and stay safe!

    Viki, YES!! I agree and so does Maggie on the people who shoot off fireworks all week and all night!

    Poor Hugs. I feel for him, and for you (always just as hard on the spouse!). Mac and cheese with frozen custard is a great choice, and hopefully he’ll feel up to eating it. Probably not exciting for you though.

    No boys here either. Our kids are growing up with lives of their own, aren’t they? Wizard and I were just talking about that, and how we’re adjusting, but once in a while, we have a pang.

    I hope Hubs keeps improving, and you guys have a nice 4th. I also hope Spunk is feeling good, I forgot to ask about the little guy.
