Thank you Wil for the 4th of July wishes. Hope you have a great week-end. It's been nice (weather wise) here the past few days. Hope it stays that way a while. Today the high was around 78F. Nice breeze blowing.

Thank you Wil! As well as for visiting my blog:) As of now it's for sure, I'll be spending the 4th in San Diego - I'll get hubby to get pics of the fireworks.

Thank you, Reader Wil! We'll be spending the evening of the Fourth with friends -- making pizza to cook in their outdoor oven. And there will be fireworks!

Happy 4th of July to everyone. It is just another day to most people in the world but a big deal here. Not that big. It is more of a get together for many families who barbecue out and spend the day eating and visiting. There were fireworks here last night and I suppose some will be shot off among our neighbors today. Thanks, Wil, and have a nice day yourself.
