View Full Version : Happy Fourth of July

Hope everyone who is celebrating has a safe and fun 4th of July!

"...We hold these truths to be self evident, that ALL MEN are created equal..."

People have fought and died for those words, are still fighting, still dying...

Hopefully one day, it will be true. All will be equal. :yes:

So! If you care to join us, dinner is tomorrow at 3:00, poolside.

There will be pitchers of Tink's famous punch (not for children) bubbly, and some other libations... Florida Bubbly... (champagne with blood orange juice)...

Lobster salad, grass fed burgers, Chilean Seabass and Tuna kebabs with mushrooms, lemon tarragon potato salad, blueberries with cream, apple crumble, caramel brownies, black cherry sorbet, triple cream brie with bianco d'oro (salami) and wheat French bread... and whatever else we feel like putting on the table.

Happy Birthday America! Thank you Mum! ;)

A very happy 4th of July to all of my US friends.

Well, the rain has started. Morning was overcast and gray, and now it's between sheeting and drizzle. NOT a good park day. Always feel bad for those who are here for a major holiday and the weather is bad. :sigh:

At least our poolside is under cover! :yes: Won't be in the pool, but will be on the lanai.

The potato salad (non-mayo type) is yummy! The Florida Mimosas are great too! :D

Hope you are all enjoying your day!

Happy 4th of July to my friends in the US . Hope you are having a very safe & enjoyable day .

For you Sister Tink !

Do you have a recipe for the potato salad Tink?

04-07-2010, 05:11 PM
Well, I have done some homework and enjoyed some reading (somewhat school related) all while sitting outside in my gravity chair. I love that thing.

Then decided to take a walk. Walked for 30 min around the neighborhood. Looked at phone for weather....87 but feels like 92. Now sitting inside in AC. :)

Don't worry, I have been gooped up with sunscreen. I have spf 70. Of course, I see the places I missed yesterday, as they are burnt.

Good day so far. Need to do some house work.

Sister Tinker that is cool!

Johnie, I'll get it from Herself for you. :yes:

OMG!!! The caramel in coffee is incredible! Did it just for fun and now am totally over the top with it. MmmmmmmMMMMMM!
