No Tedious History Lessons Here
What used to be an oasis of fun has been turned into a tedious history lesson.
Do Your Own Research
Secondly do your own research about our glorious or tawdry past. I’m certainly not going to waste your time.
Leaving The History Lessons Out This Year
The 1700’s. Yay! Now Back To The Fireworks!
Certainly I’ll share a few facts about the 1700’s. That’s about it.
Better To Share Stories Of Fourth’s Past
However I think it’s more fun to share some stories of fourths I remember as a kid. Even more fun to do it while the eclipse gets rolling and the kids shoot fireworks in the park.
Great American Detroit Rolling Steel
For example for some reason I seem to remember all the wonderful cars from back in the day in my stories. Giant hunks of American Steel.
Backyard Parties! Martinis! Beer! Coffee! Cigarettes!
In addition those backyard parties with my grandfather’s sales guys.
Best Memories Are Childhood Memories
Truth is to a kid, everything is bigger than life. Especially the smells. Martinis. Beer. Coffee. Cigarettes. Cigars. Even Perfume.
Nostalgia Beats Bitching and Moaning
Finally it sure seems to me like reminiscing is better therapy in today’s world, than bitching and moaning about interpretations of the signing of the declaration. Besides, those guys in the park have fireworks!
Nothing More American Than A Perfect Summer Night!
To sum up don’t forget! A perfect summer night. Fireworks. An eclipse. The entire neighborhood partying.
(Editor’s Note: Yes I do refer to the American Colonies circa 1776 as ‘The United States’. My mistake, but perhaps understandable considering the amount of fireworks in the background. Obviously we did not become These United States until after the ratification of the US Constitution in 1788, and the Bill of Rights later in 1790.)
