    Some of us live in America and have restrictions that limit our celebratory activities, I am curious: How are you and your family celebrating the 4th of July?

    We had planned a big celebration, but have scaled back, for different reasons. It will just be our immediate family now. We have invested in fireworks, so, depending on the weather, we will be lighting up the nighttime sky.
    Pulled pork is on the menu!
    Happy Independence Day to you and yours Kenna!
    What are your plans?

      We will invest in fireworks as well and, hopefully, go to a park during the day just to get outside and have fun. The pork sounds fabulous, though I am vegan. Haha. I wasn't always vegan!
      Happy Independence Day!

    Home,  alone. As most of you know, there are rants galore concerning pre-4th fireworks; mainly to do with freaking out the animals: dogs, cats, horses, and other pets. I'm not fond of the every-night detonations and explosions either. But, I also remember when I was young. We'll get through it. smile

      I watch Hamilton on Disney Plus last night. I felt that was an appropriate way to begin the 4th of July weekend.

        Kenna, you mean President Hamilton? Glad to know any way.

          Had a big yard sale the 3rd and 4th.  And watched my grandson ride his bike in a neighborhood parade, complete with police, sirens and all.  Couldn't have the city parade, so the community put on a bicycle parade instead.  Pretty cool!

            Wilderness, that sounds perfect. I hope the big yard sale was fruitful.

              Fruitful?!?!  We cleared over $1,000!  We've had many yard sales in the past, but nothing like that.

          Alexander Hamilton never made it to the presidency, though he contributed to a lot of the infrastructure of our government today.

          It was stunning! Angelica's song, "Satisfied" is my favorite.

            It was. My daughter and son's girlfriend had made a date to watch it... I was just sort of hanging around. I'm not a musical theatre fan, but I was drawn in from the start. Really, really good. I might have to watch it again - we've only got Disney for the month.

            My favourite was the dribbly King's parts. He was fab.

              I loved the King. Such a fun role for an actor to play. My daughter bought Disney for a month, too. I am sure she'll see it again, and I will try to join her.

    I'm celebrating the fact that the editors are editing ALL my Exemplore hubs. They've been updating them all week, even today.

    Thank you, Editors. Happy July 4th.

      Bev, you're on a network site. That's why I'm not seeing your stories.                            I think now is time to dig. Thanks and happy independence celebration!
