I'm prob the last one to be asking this
questions, not being an American..

I know it's INDEPENDENCE DAY.

but then,
if you take into account,
I live so far away 'over here'

therefore,
would LOVE to know how you folks will
spend the all important day... on the 4th.

All posts will be highly appreciated.

Thanks.

Hubby has a gig in Texas and I can't go, so I think I am going to a friends house for BBQ and fun stuff. I can watch fireworks from my driveway. They're legal in my area and my neighbors really put on a show!

It's crazy! Fireworks going off all around you, from all directions. I just get my lawn chair, pack my little cooler, sit back and enjoy!
