July 4, 2013

Jogging with a friend, parade in downtown STL where we saw Coach Yost and family, air show over the river and under the arch, Mr. Wizards on the way home, a little housework and rest, then playing and dinner with a crew of new friends in St. Charles for the evening, including a few of our own fireworks, until we drove back to Chesterfield where we parked to watch the big fireworks at the mall.  Whew!  Bone tired from a great day's fun.

But one of the best things of the day was hearing on NPR our nation's Declaration of Independence read aloud by I don't know how many people, about 20 sec./person.  It was amazing to hear all the different accents and voices reading our declaration to me.  I loved it!  I don't remember the last time I read it or heard it read.

Happy 4th, y'all!


  1. Fun! Where were you in St. Charles? They go off all over the place around here - sat in our neighborhood and had a panoramic view of fireworks all around!

  2. Julie, I couldn't tell you where we were--somewhere off 94, at exit 9. It was a beautiful drive back in at 9:20 because there WERE fireworks EVERYWHERE!
