This past weekend was packed with lots of sun, outdoor time and socializing. It was a wonderful holiday weekend. I haven't been in the States for a national holiday in some time and many years since I celebrated the 4rth at home. It felt good to be festive and celebrate something uniquely American in the country instead of out. Sunday we took an excellent hike in the woods. The weather could not have been better and we were feeling quite jovial and expansive when we stumbled across a huge stockpile of used fireworks. In the middle of this fiasco was an empty liqueur bottle.
We just stood and stared. Is this 1976? WTF? Whoever decided to light off fireworks in these woods managed to get everything in, but couldn't figure a way to carry it out. It was ugly, stupid and a realization of how far we haven't come since the Keep America Beautiful commercials in the 70's. Uuh....
Happy Birthday America, God Bless and Good Luck.
