In the past, our family has gotten together for hamburgers and hot dogs on the grill, volley ball or hanging out by the pool when one was available. Then, in the evening, we‘d pile into the car and drive to see one of the area public fireworks displays.
We are fortunate where we live to have several good shows to choose from and through the years we’ve attended fireworks shows at Texas Rangers Ballpark in Arlington, Downtown Fort Worth, Dallas, Kaboom Town in Garland and a nice one in Mansfield.
This year my age is showing. My husband and I are staying home! We’ve decided it’s too hot at around a hundred degrees, the traffic is too much to deal with and already this summer there are several cases of West Nile Virus reported in the area. The mosquitos I’ve seen are big enough to carry you away!
So, this year on the 4th, we will be at home in the air conditioning, looking for fireworks on the big screen TV while we enjoy spaghetti and meat sauce. I wish everyone a happy and very safe holiday, however you decide to celebrate!
Hugs to all, Carra
