    USA! USA! USA!

    Really was looking forward to watching A Capitol Fourth - figured The Beach Boys would be a natural since this is probably their last go round and they hosted festivities in DC for a few years. See Watt, James.

    But Phillip Phillips will be there.

    The ex-hubby and I used to own fireworks stands. Many of them.

    The grown daughter asks me today, "Mom, will you go buy me some fireworks? I can't get them in Austin. And I'm working too much to drive out to buy some. Get them and save them for me."

    My response? "Oh, HELL, no. I know what they cost to the owner. No way am I paying full price now. Call your dad. Have him buy them for you."

    The Fourth is the deadliest day on the road, even more so than New Years Eve. Heard the story from AAA this week.

    When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.


    We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

    OK, now you can go drink High Life in the sun. Wear sunscreen.

    As the only person in my department working today, I'm not going to lie and say I'm not trying to knock this shit out early. Then I will sleep and try to fight the urge to buy a grill just to cook some hot dogs on the 4th.
