July Fourth Weekend Is Over

Ginnie BakerThe July fourth weekend here in the country brought cooler than normal temperatures. We all commented that it was odd to wear sweatshirts on the 4th of July! But, cool or not, the Bellville parade came off without a hitch and everyone enjoyed the special day.

As dark approached, neighbors, one by one, got ready for their annual fireworks displays. On Friday night, one neighbor lit up the sky with the beautiful the beautiful colors of the fireworks. It was a great display for the whole valley.

Then on Saturday night, another neighbor set off his July 4th display, again lighting up the dark sky with red, white and blue fireworks.


There are organized fireworks in most of the towns around here, but the impromptu displays done by neighbors are a little more special. While we all enjoyed the fireworks, my miniature donkeys, Samson and Delilah, didn’t seem to care for all the noise. They stood side-by-side in the barn, seeming to get comfort from being close together.

These sound great. Do you happen to have a recipe for a pickle that is on the sweeter side with garlic and onion? A friend of mine says he loves these but doesn't know the name of them. Thanks.
