Well, our trip is now in the memory bin. The total mileage was 5280 miles. We've been weeding and catching up on the chores around here and things are definitely looking summerlike now. Our rains are finally getting to be more regular and we may start lessening the effects of the last several years of drought. We just had a great July 4th weekend. The five Wisconsin grandchildren stayed with us along with Uncle Bernie/Dad. We managed to get to the town parade, watch some nice fireworks over the lake and swim for hours. The swimming in the rain on Monday was an especially nice episode for all of us waterbabies. Summer really is a nice season and America's birthday comes at just the right time to have all the great summer fruits and picnic foods. Happy Birthday America and thanks to all the different ancestors who made the choices they made to get to this wonderful country and thanks to our loving Creator who sprinkled this vast nation with wondrous gifts of nature. We're the caretakers now and let us do the best we can to take care of it.
