Independence Day

White peaches, nectarines, more peaches, watermelon.

Lots of little flags along our curb.

Kids' special treat of small-bottler birch beer and cream soda in glass bottles.

Plenty of time for conversation with friends.

Good beer. Margaritas.

First-ever homemade three-bean salad, a success!

First-of-the-summer homemade salsa, always delicious.

Grilled burgers and sausages.

Ice cream bars.

Fireworks from near to the horizon. Cities and towns and families all around, making fire and light and sound.

Oooh. Aaaah.

Now let us renew the light of liberty, which is more powerful and good than capitalism or war or climate change or all-bets-are-off free trade, as our best gift to the world. And that's all I have to say about that.
