I am going to sit at home and watch the grass grow . I wish we had something to do but we live in a small town and we are broke as a joke. Can I come fishing ? or Swimming ?

Have a bbq for just the two of you. Set up a blanket on the back lawn and
make some burgers or hotdogs and watch the grass grow together all day.
Hug and laugh and smile a lot and the day will be perfect.

If so, take what pd said and grab a cooler and make a little picnic for you and Barbara and watch the fireworks together.

Well hopefully this year will be better than last 4th. I was laid up on the floor with a hurt back for the car wreak we'd had 2 days prior (we were rear ended and my car was totalled).

We're heading to Evansville, IN on the 1st for my oldest boys ball tournament it goes from the 1st to the 3rd but the length of time we spend there depends on how well they do.

For the 4th we'll go back to Indiana and see the fireworks in the town we just moved from......awesome display. Not sure but we may hook up with some friends and cook out prior and more than likely drink a few beers. Don't worry we won't be driving back to Illinois if we do decide to drink.

probably working until 6. after that we're going to a freind's house to eat and watch fireworks. annual tradition. his mom feeds everyone till you can't eat anymore then we close off the street and blow off fireworks. it's kind of neat because everybody who lived on the street all wander down to watch them too.

I've got to work. I get Sunday and Tuesday off, though. It's going to be a slow, slow, day, with a little cookout for about 120 folks at the end of the day. As soon as I can get home, we'll load up the van, and haul everyone to a nearby town to watch the fireworks there. The town we live in will have fireworks the Saturday before the 4th, so the kids will get two shots of fireworks.

Hubby was just told he may have to work so I'm not sure if we'll celebrate Sunday or Monday. We'll just cook out and have my parents over. If there are any neighbors around we'll have them, too. They do fireworks Sat., Sun. and Mon. nights around here so we can take our pick.
