Happy Birthday, America!

I’ll be spending this 4th of July with my girlfriend. We don’t really have any plans, although I have a feeling large, neon-colored explosions will somehow play a part. We spent yesterday afternoon at Folsom Lake, spending time with some of our dancing friends and enjoying barbecued meat and veggies. And our friend Dennis brought his famous chocolate chip cookies, so you know it was a good day.

Honestly, Bee and I will probably celebrate America’s birthday like we do with any occasion: dancing. One of our favorite dance venues is open tonight, so we’ll likely head there for some Blues and West Coast Swing dancing after dinner. For those of you lighting fireworks tonight: stay safe and have fun.

Oh, and America: stay classy!
