With the rains from Hurricane Arthur rapidly approaching, our cookout has become a "cookin - eatin" little get-together. A few friends will be arriving soon, so meanwhile I snapped a few photos of the decorations. I'll throw in some fun July 4th facts along the way.
According to an article in yesterday's newspaper, "More than 153 million people - close to half the population of the 50 states - will observe Independence Day with a cookout, barbecue, or picnic."
An estimated $6.2 billion will be spent on hot dogs, burgers, potato salad, and snack items. Yikes!!!
"About 105 million of us - one in three Americans - will attend a fireworks display or other community celebration, and about 27 million will view a parade."
One last photo . . . even Emma gets into the patriotic spirit. She's draped across my lap as I am writing this posting.
Have a flag waving, wonderful day!
