Happy Independence Day 2011

How do I celebrate the Fourth of July each year? Well, let me just say it includes some flag decor, eating melons and watching Yankee Doodle Dandy, a classic 1942 movie starring James Cagney. And this year  we have fabulous warm summer weather. So warm in fact, that there will be no fog in San Francisco which means all those folks who go out to watch the fireworks will be able to see them. Ah, summer.

While my town does have a fireworks display, I won't be attending. Thousands of people arrive to watch and the last time it took me more than an hour to get home from what normally is a five minute drive. We girls do need our beauty sleep!

Mom has been staying over the past few weeks which has made Miss Gracie quite happy. She loves company and is fascinated watching any activity that takes place. Gracie and Nipper both love their grandma (and she loves her grandkitties, too). They've been quite hot this past week with the heat wave that we've had (and that includes all three of them!). Give me the warm weather any day. Ah, summer.
