Ready 4 the 4th

I am decorated inside and out and I am making patriotic cupcakes for our tiny family gathering tomorrow. Rain will not spoil our day.

I can't wait to wear my glow stick bracelet that is tri-color and relax to watch fireworks on TV.

Sparklers scare me. My parents told me not to play with matches and then handed me a sparkler. Does that sound familiar? My dad was mad that I didn't like it. The other kids ran around with them and acted as if they weren't dangerous.

Yikes!

Happy 4th of July, Midge - my parents warned us so much about matches that only my brother (the fire-starter!) would hold a sparkler on 5th November. Us girls (3 of us) steadfastly refused ;-) I was about 16 before I could light a gas cooker during school cookery lessons, or a Bunsen burner during chemistry. Now I still buy LONG matches for lighting my multifuel stove :-) Glow stick bracelets sound perfect to me!
