The 4th of July is about many things. Summertime, picnics, celebrations, baseball, fireworks, corn and the red, white and blue to name a few. In Bristol, Rhode Island in 1777 it has been noted that 13 gunshots were fired in the morning and again in the evening to celebrate the colonies independence from Great Britain. Bristol is home to one of the most historied Independence Day parades in the country. I have never been to that parade even though this is a small state. I may have to put it on my bucket list. I will celebrate with family around the barbie. The corn from my garden is not yet ready for the plate but by any standard of measurement, 3' Hailey, 4'11'' Jessica, 6'3" Ben or The EM at 6'2" , it is knee high. How are you celebrating the 4th of July? I hope you have a memorable one.
