Fourth of July Weekend

Three day weekends, aren't they great?  We went to a baseball game--the Sounds won!

The game took an unusual turn when the home plate umpire was struck in the forearm.  Ouch!  Poor fellow, he immediately when to his knees.  This is a discussion between the team managers and remaining umpires on how to proceed with the game one umpire short.

The mascot was dressed in his patriotic Uncle Sam outfit.

There was lots of rain on the Fourth, but it did not keep the neighbors from celebrating.  There were bombs bursting in air in the wee hours of the night/morning.

Thank goodness Miss Callie Mae was unaffected by all the noise made by the fireworks.

With an extra day and all the rain, I took advantage and finished Currants, Coxcomb and Rose by The Goode Huswife.  

Three days weekend, they are great!
