We are feeling star spangled and free here at The Wit Continuum… After a rainy start we have settled ourselves into glorious skies and a bit of literary air, aka, reading and blogging until fireworks start. Hope all of my Wit babes are feeling the vibe of summer exploding around you!

Uncle’s celebration of the 4th of July, the yearly showdown of eating, drinking and perfectly safe, legal, firework extravaganza will be taking place today….and this Wit can’t wait. I’ve been cooking today to for the eventful occasion in which we will not only celebrate this country’s freedom, but also the new found freedom of my dear cousin and all her gorgeousness!

We will not be taking Lorenzo, the deck squirrel, who eats all the bird seeds…

Nor will we be taking the backyard bear…

…but we will be taking this….

…and this…

…along with three Wit teen members in this…

Enjoy this pre-4th Day to everyone out there.
Peace and freedom for all…

We’ll be hitting Uncle’s party around 2 pm on the July fourth, and won’t see the road until late that night after the huge assortment of fireworks has hit the air, and come down precariously close to where we’ll be sitting.  Viking helmet, anyone?  Please remember to eat, drink, and be safe this weekend as we celebrate the country’s birthday!!

Happy Independence Day to all from the Wit Continuum.

Peace…

July 4th – The fireworks of my uncle…

Another 4th of July already!  The Wit and family will be spending it with uncle who hosts a big shin-dig in the coal banked reaches of northeast pa.  Around 9 pm or so, after we have all heavily drunk of the wild cisterns of glee that are often called coolers, we will sit back and watch uncle don his viking helmut, hike up his pants, toss another cold one and present us with a show, something much like this.  (well, actually not quite this big, but close, mainly because it is so close!).  Not settling for sparklers, uncles asks the tent guy earlier this week “Have anything else?” to which he is discretly escorted to the back of the gentleman’s truck where cases of United We Stand and other such phenominally named boxes can be found, all perfectly legal, of course.  There is a competition in this neighborhood…fireworks can be seen lighting the sky from all directions, leaving us dizzy and aching in the neck by the time we are on our journey home, exhausted, stuffed, and slightly drunk (except for the driver of course!)  Believe me, you haven’t experienced fireworks until some sparks have fallen on you and you at least have a hair or two singed, or as one year, when Mr. Continuum was struck in the chest by a flaming falling firework shell).  

All hazards aside…Hope everyone has a wonderful Independence Day!  Happy Shin-digs! Let freedom ring!  God bless you all!

Peace…
