elfreths alley 4th of july

“America’s Independence” Celebrate your Spirit to be American this weekend; Decorate your lawn or your bike with red, white and blue, Go to a parade and wave a flag, Salute your troops and give thanks to a soldier, Have a slice of watermelon or apple pie, Ride a wave or jump in the pool, Throw a volleyball or some horseshoes, Play kick the can and eat a hot dog, Light a sparkler or a punk, Take a rock and smash some caps, Watch the fireworks or better yet have a kiss under the fireworks, But above all of this, Be kind to your fellow-man, Have lots of fun and laugh until your sides hurt. Most importantly, Stand Proud and Tall to be an American because men fought for our Independence and gave us the freedom to do all of these things in this Beautiful Land of Ours. Happy 4th of July America. -bp

I don’t know what was more embarrassing, getting up from my seat to go to the light to read my menu, asking the waiter if he has a flash light or Actually using the flash light at the table to read the menu. I hope I didn’t embarrass anyone.

I had my most Favorite meat last night at The Half Moon Restaurant in Kennett Square…. Kangaroo Tenderloin.  I’m going to sound like a Valley Girl right now, but it was Totally Awesome! Thanks Guys for the Great time, we needed it!

Had drinks on the deck last night with the sounds of lawn mowers in the background…This is the Best March EVER!
