July 4th parade


July 4th parade

I’ve come to like July 4th as one of my favorite holidays. We have an old-fashioned parade — old cars, horses, cops on motorcycles, candy thrown out to kids. Later, fireworks over the Lake — though this being Florida, it’s been washed out at times. I don’t know if these things mean more to me because I am turning 50, or just because I am learning to appreciate simple things as I get older.
