We're usually gone for July 4th. This year was different. We went to a friends house for a swim, grilled meats and lots of fireworks. I was the obvious expendable human to light the explosives. I survived, I still have all my fingers and no burns. The daughter jumped in to help. She's so good to me. She also came out without damage.
Everybody enjoyed sparklers. Again, no burns! That's a huge success.
Wimberley Blanco River Report:
Our river park has been cleaned up. The trees are starting to grow new leaves. We still don't have our usual shady spot. We were fortunate to enjoy a rare overcast July day in the Blanco River.
The boys did some tubing. Some of our neighbors down there were also soaking in the crystal clear waters.
This is the HOT part of Summer in Texas. This is when people who can, do leave for the rest of Summer. It just gets hotter from here on till September.
