Happy Holiday All!! I know many of you are from other countries and don’t celebrate this but thats ok, independance no matter where you are is a cause to celebrate. Every year I attend a 4th of July party at my friends but this year her husband is ill and the party was cancelled. He just got home from the hospital on Wednesday and is recuperating. I grilled hamburgers and hot dogs and took it over to them with all the fixings last night along with a lemon meringue tart for dessert.

I wish each and every one of you a safe and happy holiday with lots of delicious food and fun with family and friends.

P.S. Nsndo’s wheels will be here on Wednesday, so happy. That will be his independance day celebration, he will be free to stand and eat on his own for the first time in months.

Suzanne and Nando

    As you said, independence or freedom is to be enjoyed, no matter what. I was born in India and now an American citizen and mother of 2 kids who were born here….I take pride in 4th of July celebrations.
