Happy 233rd Birthday, America!

Photo by Dee's nephew, Jeremy PollackWe watched fireworks in Danbury last night, in the same place we've watched for the last 10 years. Due to people unable to behave last year the site owner decided to limit the number of people having access to his property -- and to make this the last year people can do so. It was bitter sweet watching from this location last night ... knowing that this will be the last year marking the end to our family tradition, while enjoying it more because there were fewer people (aka trouble makers). I'm not sure what causes folks to become rude and disrespectful when they are out & about, but I can take comfort in knowing there are people who care. Imagine how great our country would be with just a little more respect. Sing it for me Aretha ... R-E-S-P-E-C-T ... (btw, Aretha Franklin is a crocheter)

Perhaps next year we'll consider making the trek to Shelton and hang out with our nieces & nephews -- check out the awesome shot my nephew Jeremy took! ((to see more of his photography visit his flicker account))

I'm sure you're wondering how this is all crochet related? ... why, I worked on crocheting a swatch for a secret project while waiting! Happy 233rd Birthday, America!
