Will Washington ever get it right?  Wikileaks.  What will it be next?  Okay, this blogger is not going to go down that road.  Plenty of blogs out there weighing in on this mess, and any fool knows that one subject best left alone is politics, so let’s move on to something less volatile.  

Like fireworks.  Yep, it is the week of the 4th.  Many of you will head on over to Lake Jacksonville and watch the city’s firework show.  It’s pretty impressive.  Just remember, as you make your plans to celebrate Independence Day, this is the time of year that we have to be exceptionally careful.  Too many young ‘uns end up in the emergency room every year because they mishandle fireworks.  Too many of our fields and pastures get burned because adults mishandle fireworks. So, have fun, but be safe.  Final word of warning, you are responsible morally, legally, and financially if you mess up. Nuff said.

With that in mind, JJ will have his annual backyard bar-b-que for a few dozen of his friends and family.  There are sure to be some fireworks there as well, and not just the kind you can buy at the numerous stands that have sprung up all over the place.  Our farmboy and snowbird will be part of the celebration, so it will be interesting to see if this pair does some sparking of their own.  He! He! Sparking.  Get it.  Of course you do.  According to unnamed sources, and they are many and varied, the two are still playing it cool, but every Sunday, come rain or shine, they are sitting together, right hand side, 3rd pew from the back at the Miller C of C.  Don’t believe this blogger, come check it out for yourself.  When do you think the wedding will be?  DT at the water office is writing down your guesses.  And guys, remember, the Twelfth of Never is taken.

Meanwhile here in the piney woods keep an eye on those elderly folks who live alone.  If you know someone who needs a fan, get in touch with Ron at the fire station.  Heat is the number one reason that people over 70 die during the sweltering hot summer months.  And let’s not forget to give a shout out to Marvin Trout, ninety years young, and still mowing his own grass.  Here’s to ninety more, Marvin.
