The evening of the fourth ended up being wet, so I didn’t take the camera out to record our fireworks. Once I figured out how to light them in the rain we had fun. (I finally resorted to using a butane soldering torch) Like most things you remember as a child, the fireworks of my youth seemed a lot bigger. The first few fountains only went up about 2-3 feet. I was thinking, “That’s it?” We saved the biggest ones for last and they were pretty fun. Lot’s of noise. It was fun having Linda in town, and we’re looking forward to the visits next week from the other siblings.
For awhile, Linda didn’t believe all of our deer reports as they were staying out of view. But the last evening we got to watch several at dinner time and the next morning we were treated to these two fawns and their mother.
What Linda and Lori missed while they were out eating pizza though was once again I found myself in the cattle business. I returned home from getting my haircut to find 9 cows wandering around behind our garage. Fortunately I was able to round 8 of them up into our corral and the last one took off down the creek. So no damage to the yard. I’ll have to think of some other excuse for why it still looks so bad.
