Although I wish we were still on Isla, we're spending the 4th here at home in Phoenix visiting with some of the friends from Fourth of July's past. Last night, we ate pizza with good friends from our Midwest days. I distinctly remember watching the village fireworks with them back in the early 80's on a blanket at the football stadium. We'll also be cooking burgers and yucking it up with a neighbor from Washington State tomorrow. Lots of good memories of Fourth of July's past!
Last year we celebrated the Fourth of July on Isla, watching the post election celebrations in the street below the condo. Here are some red, white, and blue pics from our June trip.
It looks like a hot hot time here in Phoenix! How hot is it? We were at the grocery store tonight and what sounded like a bomb exploded in the parking lot. I ran into the grocery store fearing the worst. Turns out it was a car tire imploding from the excessive heat.
We topped the thermometer at 119 today with an overnight low of 90 degrees expected. Hope everyone has a safe and fun Fourth of July!
