We went down to Westport for the “Fourth of July Festivus” as Uncle Buck called it.
Uncle Buck & Sister Tater and their family were there. Tay didn’t get to go because she had to work.
And, of course, Tim and I were there minus any of our four kids. Konnie and Jon really wanted to go because as Jon said, “Uncle Buck knows how to throw a righteous party.” Can you tell Jon graduated in a different era than Konnie did? But it’s true, Uncle Buck is city foreman and he knows how to throw a righteous party, whether it’s a birthday event or just a Fourth of July celebration
There was a Giant Flag.
And a customary honor guard
Jams of every sort
The usual but with sauerkraut, too, if that’s your choice.
And even a little desert to top it all off, though, we waited until we were back at Sister Tater’s place before we got our desert. What would a 4th of July be, afterall, without the Ice Cream man who came through the neighborhood playing Christmas songs. I have no idea why. Maybe he’d been nipping the Root Beer Float flavors a little too much.
I settled on the Taco version. Ice cream folded into a waffle cone. What’s your favorite flavor from the Ice Cream Man?
We are packing up to leave now but as you can see a good time was had by all. Hope your 4th was equally as jubuliant.
Now that we have all this Freedom that God and others has blessed us with, what are we going to do with it to bless others, huh?
