Happy fourth, everyone!
It is too bad that the economy has put a damper on this great day, but we can all still take thanks that we live in the best country in the world, and none of us is having to go hungry.
Note: If anyone is actually hungry... come on by the Barco, we will be burning Brats and hot dogs later on. But it will be quite the goat rope at the marina, everyone is trying to get to their boats, or put boats in the water.
Not a good time for boating, the way I see it, this is "amateur hour", where everyone will take to the river to enjoy the water and the freedom that boating uniquely provides. Plus; It is hot out there, so many boaters will be slamming cold barley pops to help beat the heat.
Results? A couple hundred manned missiles moving at the speed of heat, operated by dehydrated automatons who are replacing much needed electrolytes with grain based fluids mixed with a 5% alcohol solution.
Takes one to know one, right?
Have a wonderful Fourth, and remember the reasons why we are allowed to enjoy this day in relative peace!
Now for some real cool jazz, Stan Kenton and a young Maynard Ferguson;
Don't listen to this next one unless you can stand some Very Heavy Metal, but I really like the Patriotism of this next number.
If you can't understand the Lyrics, It goes like "On your feet, Who's with me? Hooah! This is for the Soldiers... Hooah!
