Let the Festivities Begin!

The weekend looms large. It is Thursday and I have just policed the park for trash. Dumpster is emptied on Friday and I want all the trashcans to be at the ready. It will be a full park.

I worked on one of my ugliest, over grown gardens until nearly 3:00 today. It was overcast, but hot and humid. I was determined to make great headway and I did, but now I feel kind of queasy. I still have flag banners to hang along with red, white and blue lights. There is still tomorrow.

The burgers are all patted out. I lost count, but it was over 40 lbs of ground beef. The buns will be picked up tomorrow and we have 75 hotdogs, as well. Now I am worried we won't have enough food ........ maybe I should get more, just in case.

Saturday will begin with a golf cart-bicycle parade around 11:00. There will be fabulous prizes for the most patriotic cart and the most patriotic bike. My dogs will be riding in the lead cart and Eddie would win the most patriotic pet, but he is disqualified, since he belongs to me. Not to worry, he knows how adorable he is!

After the parade, there will be kites and washer toss, horse shoes and such to be played. I love to fly kites, so I will be out there with the kids. HeWho grills will be cooking burgers and dogs on the new smoker grill on the pavilion. We will be eating around 5:00.

After we eat I will turn everything over to Dan Smith. He will be entertaining the crowd until dark. Then the crowds will be moving to the open fields to watch HeWho lights up my life light up the sky with fireworks. I will be handing out glow in the dark necklaces and sparklers to the kids. Maybe some bomb pops and popcorn, as well.

Be prepared for lots of pictures next week. I have lights to hang and tables to decorate ........

Sounds like a fabulous party is on the horizon! Just so you dodged a bullet without even flinching. Hick was contemplating looking you up to see about that emu egg. I informed him that this is a HOLIDAY WEEKEND and a HOLIDAY WEEK, and he was going to do no such thing! He has the whole week off, and thinks everybody else does, too.

Kathy, have a fun weekend. You and He-Who are great hosts. I'd buy more hot dogs, though. Eddie as parade grand master, I love it!
