USA! USA!

I don’t know why, but I love the 4th of July. The older I get, the more I appreciate holidays that don’t revolve around gift giving. And I love fireworks. That’s one thing I miss about Milwaukee - that city sure knows how to put on a good fireworks display. In Juneau, the fireworks happen at 12:01 a.m. on the 4th because that’s the only time it’s dark enough. Then the parades and stuff don’t start until 11 a.m. so you can sleep in. This year, instead of celebrating I get to chauffer my aunt and uncle around all day. Of all the cruise ships (and trust me, there are a lot of cruise ships that come here in the summer) they had to be on the one that docks on the 4th. I don’t see them very often and I never really know what to talk to them about (their favorite topics include God, saving unborn babies, and talking about relatives I don’t know). I was thinking about being “busy” but since my dad is still in the hospital and it “would mean a lot to him”, I really don’t have a choice in the matter and I will be playing tour guide all day. Can’t wait. I hope all three of my readers enjoy the weekend though!

Don't worry, we didn't have any fun.at.all. And unborn babies DO need a lot of saving, although usually from being born, since most of the bad stuff happens AFTER that!

I love me some God. I also love me some unborn babies. Those fuckers can ROCK OUT.
