Happy Fourth of July!

Uncle Sam on a Bike

I totally need to own one of these gadgets for my yard. As I was cycling with Jim this holiday weekend south of Burnet Texas we passed a house sporting one of these whirlygigs in the yard. With the stiff breeze we had today, old Uncle Sam’s wheels were flying! I had to stop for a photo op.

The holiday weekend has otherwise been just a relaxing mix of puttering around the house, barbequing and hanging out with friends. Kem came over for bbq on Fri and then later it was on to the Dennings/Floyds for the birds eye view of area fireworks. Their deck affords quite a view.

All in all, I can sum up my 4th of July weekend in the inimitable words of Peter Gibbons in the movie Office Space:

Peter Gibbons: Michael, I did nothing. I did absolutely nothing, and it was everything I thought it could be.

One thought on “Happy Fourth of July!

  1. We felt the same way about our 4th–and it was so relaxing. We spent much of the day on the patio, than had Carolyn over for a grilled chicken supper, also on the patio, then fireworks on TV with the Boston Pops. Very pleasant.
