Post 455: Way to go!

I can’t think of a better way to show respect for our American veterans with PTSD than to celebrate the 4th of July for eight days from 9 AM till 10 PM, then July 3rd and 4th from 9 AM till midnight.

Must be great to have a ten-day-long reminder of the combat “fun” you had fighting in America’s wars. Thanks for your service.

Ten gruelling days: That’s how long my hometown allows fireworks to be shot off in celebration of the July 4th holiday.

I had a comment from a reader who wanted to follow this blog but couldn’t find the place to do it. These two places plus one on the toolbar at the very top of the blog post are where you can subscribe. (There’s a circle with a checkmark in it, next to the word “Follow” on the toolbar.)

I’m so worn out from the blanking ten days of fireworks, especially the ones to midnight the past two nights, I’m having difficulties focusing at the moment. Here’s a couple kitty photos my Seattle sister took of my boys when she was here recently on a family visit:
