the best 4th of july

   I’m sure somewhere in the annals of this holiday there is a better one, but this is the best 4th I’ve ever had

years ago I went and watched the Beack Boys Live at the Hollywood Bowl.  You could see the word hollywood that you see in the movies on the hillside in the distance.  After they played such greats as Barbarann, giddyup 409, and I get around, there was this huge fireworks show.  People were drinking beer that was being served in popcorn buckets, and the pungently sweet smell of marijuana was hanging like a blue fog in the air over the crowd.

It doesn’t get any more “americana” than that

  6. nothing wrong with a little R&R once a decade or so, MD…c’mon…i’ll show yuh jamaica, mon…ummm…you gotta lose the suit though.

    I’m not even sure if I can take it off at this point. Too much emotional trauma.

    I suppose, if I can still wear a sportcoat.

    Anyway, it’s not that, I’m okay with beer and marijuana part, it’s the Beach Boys I don’t really like.

  8. lol….see..like I said…you’re ok.
