There hasn’t been much happening in our world lately that would be considered travel blog material.
Just normal everyday living. Doing a few chores for an elderly aunt and uncle, cutting grass, picking and putting up Summer’s bounty, etc. We have been doing a little car shopping for Wanda. We haven’t been real pleased with her vehicle from day one, and might be working on a change.
We managed a road trip to Baton Rouge last Saturday for the day. Made our first visit to a Trader Joe’s. A neat little store with lots of stuff designed to part you with your money. No, we didn’t leave with a any “Two (or Four) Buck Chuck.”
As for the holiday itself, we’ll be close to home. Our little lane is proudly displaying the Colors of Independence. The neighbors are hosting the annual Fourth of July picnic, and the flags are flying. There will be the normal burgers and hotdogs, along with slow cooked brisket and pork. Watermelons, and homemade ice cream. Red velvet cake, and blueberry pies. It’s amazing the food that appears at a Southern get-to-gather.
Though I would like to be posting this blog from someplace like Idaho or Montana, there are benefits to being home for the Fourth……..jc
