John and I want to wish everyone a safe and happy 4th of July. While this is a time for family, barbecues, and fireworks, let us not forget what we're really celebrating here - Independence. A free and independent country that celebrates the uniqueness of its citizens. And the men and women who fought so valiently to guarantee all our freedoms.
Today is the anniversary of Picket's Charge in Gettysburg. I grabbed this picture from another blog...if you ever get a chance to go to Gettysburg, do it! I've been a number of times and it never fails to move me! The atmosphere of that place is still filled with the feeling of fear and hate and revenge and death and more fear. You can almost smell the smoke and blood.
Enough, about blood and death!
John and I are having his family over for barbecue tomorrow. We are not sure what we're serving - the only thing I'm sure of is that it's from the freezer! I don't say the work butcher around the animals - makes 'em stressed! And you don't want stressed meat! I say re-purposed cause they don't understand that word - haha! Anyway, Huevo is taking a little trip on Monday morning and we need room in the freezer for his return. Since he is over 1000 pounds, that means we need a lot of room in the freezer!
Happy 4th of July, everyone!
