    Celebrating Merka tomorrow!

    Hey, what are you doing to celebrate Independence Day tomorrow?

    Chillin' & Grillin'? Parades? Parties?

    I am going to the heart of Trump country -- my home town!

    They have a parade where the star spangled banner is flown about as often as the bars & stars.

    There'll be pick'em up trucks, souped-up tractors, dune buggies, cherried-out muscle cars, old ladies playing accordion, 4-willers, crotch-rockets, water balloons, feral pit bulls, opioid junkies, drunkards, winos, wanna-be gunslingers, "militia men," rednecks, hillbillies, a klansman or two, poachers, and me.

    Low-key here: a movie, lunch out, then a pool party at a relative's house. Have to keep cool, it's going to be 107 degrees here in Phoenix.

    No idea what we're doing. I'd like to see some fireworks -- we haven't the last couple of years because it's either been too hot or the fireworks were someplace hard to get to (and low, so they weren't very visible from outside the venue). It's supposed to be very hot and humid, with thunderstorms, so that may not happen either. We have a(n extended) family member coming to visit for a week so some of the agenda will be up to her.

    Maybe it's the weather; maybe it's other things, but I'm just not much into celebrating 'murrica this year...

    Wow. Must be a super-secret plan. I haven't heard a word. Alex is such a reliable source...
