I bought a new fishing rod and reel this week. It isn't anything fancy, I just didn't have a rod to use anymore. Long story that I don't want to get into. I am thinking I'll go fishing tomorrow to break it in, after work. Yes, I have to work on a Saturday. You guys want your beef, right? (I work at a meat-packing plant as an administrative assistant.) I need a little relaxation, anyway.

Happy Birthday America!

I love being American! My husband is an Air Force veteran, my sister and my father are Army veterans, my maternal grandfather fought in World War II, I have an ancestor on my mother's side who fought in the Revolutionary War. My paternal great-grandparents came to America through Ellis Island from Sicily, Italy. I hold freedom most dear and wish freedom for all people in the world.
I am taking my kids to a 4th of July parade this morning and tonight I will see the fireworks as I am working at a booth at the local fair. Happy Independence Day/4th of July!
