Fun For The Fourth

Last Saturday, my friend, Donna, came to town to attend the Olden Days Festival with me. (For those of you new to the blog, Donna and I were classmates in school. She moved out of the area after high school, and we lost touch for several many years. We reconnect through a mutual friend….and Facebook.

If you’ve been a follower of this blog for any length of time, you may recall some of our antics in the past. Donna celebrates EVERY occasion and holiday to the fullest.

We’ve worn bunny ears near Easter, witch’s hats at Halloween, masks at Mardi Gras, Santa hats at Christmas.  So when she arrived Saturday morning, she came bearing….. patriotic “top hats” for July 4. We celebrated just a few days early.

One of our favorite booths at our local Farmers Market is operated by two ladies (twins). We learned a few weeks ago that Saturday was their birthday. Donna brought cards, and I brought balloons.

It was so much fun to surprise them.

Of course, Donna had a top hat for Motor Man, too.  And naturally, he had more fun with his than we did with ours.

That’s a little better, MM.

But seriously, Happy Fourth, everyone.

Be safe.
