I hope you have some fun things planned for today to celebrate our nation’s birthday. I’m thinking more along the lines of cool adult beverages and fireworks as opposed to the bike parades in which we participated as kids. Though, I have to admit, I’d get a bit of a charge out of riding around the neighborhood with crepe paper decorations and a playing card wedged in my spokes. Enough of the Air Force guys on this base already think I’m a bit weird. I wouldn’t mind screwing with them a bit more before I leave.
Later I’m heading over to Bill and Cecelia Hyland’s. Bill was my second boss in the Navy and it’s great fun that we reconnected here. They always ask about you — they remember when you and Karen visited. It will be fairly low key which is fine by me.
Last night I celebrated by knitting a red, white and blue sweater for a little teddy bear to give my secretary as a farewell. She has a nice collection of Americana bears…but none with handmade knitwear. I can now say I’ve knit a top down sweater.
Americana Bear says, “Happy Fourth of July!”
Remember where you leave your hot sparkler wires! Love, Jan
