Small Town Fourth
Bikers coming down the road announced the start of the holiday today. The tiny town of 5600 where I live had a small celebration, but alas no parade. I think each year of all the fun we had decorating our bikes for the Fourth of July parades. We put crepe paper in the spokes and each year had different themes. I revived this tradition with my kids also. One year I had a trailer bike attached to my seat post, and a baby trailer attached to it making me about fifteen feet long. I hoped to win with the most bike, but didn't win anything. We rode the bike decorated for a few days after since my daughter didn't want to dismantle all the decorations.
I went to the park amphitheater for a patriotic tribute and church service today. One of my clients and his aunt sat behind me, he was real proud that we were both there.Afterwards there was a buffet of homemade desserts to enjoy, and free lunch to accompany more holiday festivities. I had a piece of apple strudel and headed out to get this posted since I get to work today. For those enjoying the day, may it be a happy one.
