Out of the Blue

Today is Independence Day here in the US, ostensibly celebrating the nation's birthday, though fitting 244 candles onto a cake is a daunting proposition. This occasion normally inspires some warnings of the inherent dangers of being out and about while people are drinking and playing with explosives. This year carries the additional hazard of COVID-19, though this probably will reduce the risks from those other factors by lowering the turnout at gatherings. We will be laying low here. There will be some grilling in Manstovia and possibly some adult beverages, but we will just see whatever fireworks we can from the deck. This is basically the same thing we did last year, so it's not like the pandemic is actually causing our plans to change. If you are celebrating, here's hoping you have a fun and safe time.
