Happy 4th!
Monday, July 4th, 2022

While I’m feeling a little less joyful this year, the kids are looking forward to the holiday! We bought a smoker for the occasion, and my SIL spent 12 hours yesterday smoking a port butt for pulled pork sandwiches—yum! Of course, we have all the fixin’s to go along with the pork. We have sparklers and some low-explosion fireworks for the littles. Before goats and horses, we used to do a huge fireworks display, but we’ll watch the neighbors’ fireworks from a distance while the animals hide in their goat hut and barn. The poor dogs will be complete wrecks. Think of us, hunkering down with barking dogs (all 9), bleating goats (3), and a neighing old horse (Kansas is like 35 years old!). The cats (4) are always too cool to fuss.

I am sighing right now thinking of what I want to say, but zipping it, because my liberal ways annoy some people. I’ll just wish everyone a lovely day. Feast, give some comfort to your animals, and watch the lovely lights. I hope you spend the day with family—that’s always the best.

    And isn’t that the great thing about living in this amazing country of ours?? You can have your liberal views and I can have my conservative views and yet, we can still be civil. I can still buy your books and it never crosses my mind that we probably disagree on just about everything.

    So my liberal friend, I hope you and yours have a great 4th of July. Because no matter how/what we believe, we all know we live in the best country on the planet. God Bless America!!

    Thank you, Colleen!

    Shirley! My siblings and I are equally divided, but we’ve managed to keep our relationships intact throughout these past few years. So, I do know it’s possible to retain family and friendships. We love and respect each other. That’s how it should work! And thanks for not holding my blue-ness against me. 🙂
