‘You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.’ – Erma Bombeck
There’s probably nothing better than going to my dad’s house on a sunny day, watching some sports on TV and firing up the grill. I doubt I will ever have a better burger than what the ol’ man can grill blindfolded probably. There is always some reminiscing, new stories, and way too much food. Life gets so busy that it doesn’t happen too often, but I always enjoy it when it does.
