Due to the extreme drought here, our town cancelled its usual fireworks display and discourages home fireworks, which are forbidden where we live. A few of us have decided to club together for a picnic and a little parade in our back parking lot. I'm taking a fruit salad with marshmallow fluff and cream cheese "dressing." Usually the dressing is more popular than the fruit. To keep the dressing from turning I place it in a small bowl and then place the small bowl in a larger bowl of ice. Waxed paper covers all.
Sometimes I feel annoyed with the grief that goes on in our government, but I am grateful for the sacrifices that people made for the first Independence Day so long ago.
