Happy Independence Day!
I drew in the big sketchbook with the Micron 01 on July 2 and 3. Wonder why it always feels like we haven't been gone?
Number 1, door
Number 2, bottle - wine bottle with Bolivian topper, very bright colors.
When we got back on Saturday evening, we went to the fireworks with Joanna, Jennie and Brandon. Larry was working out east Texas someplace. Bet he was hot and tired, taking photos of Little League and not sure what else.
It was a pleasant evening at Fisherman's Park. Bastrop holds the fireworks on a separate day from the 4th so that the Austin Symphonic Band will come play. They play patriotic tunes and show tunes for an hour before the fireworks start. The city provided so much more to do all day. Games, a water slide, lots of food and entertainment. The local businesses sponsor the day, with the HEB Grocery store being the largest sponsor. Very nice for a small town. The beautiful fireworks last about 15 - 20 minutes.

Our first summer trip covered nine large states. We spent an overnight in Texas, both coming and going. We tried to keep driving to under 5 hours a day. Our first day out to Lubbock was the longest. It is good to be home. Tomorrow (July 4) is Joanna's birthday and two nephews, Cody and Jerry. Happy Birthday all! And Happy Birthday to the good old USA!!
