Happy 4th of July everybody. Let freedom ring-a-ding dong ding!

Today we’re going to cookout with my brother in law and his partner. Hopefully we’ll make something amazing. I’m in the mood for a big bad meal.

And then later I’m going to cross the street and hangout with the folks across the street who always blow off the best fireworks into their alley. Here’s a couple shots from last year.
