a beautiful day in the lives of others.

except for the 5 alarm fire that started just before the fireworks, the night was A(+)lright. this years shindiggy was much smaller than last years (on purpose+lorda mercy)..but a lot of folks whom we love came for our independence fiesta..we hosted about 30-40 buddies+20 or so of their buddies...mercedez made some stupendous punches+mary louise brought some like-minded lemonade..heather+faye both brought delights, i made a well received pasta salad (which was finished before i got a bite), there were ample supplies of marlow+daughters weiners+assorted beef..basically we imbibed+indulged all night long.
i'm a little sorry that i took so few pictures..but you see, i'm still not back to full foto blogger mode..i gots to say that from time to time, it's more fun just to experience things, rather than fotograph the experience..(also, i kept misplacing my camera+my drink all night, so that might have a leetle to do with it.)
