Home on the Range
I enjoyed a very traditional Independence Day holiday. My husband and I went fishing with his father and our younger daughter. On the way there, we saw herds of antelope. Then we camped two nights with our other daughter's family. My husband caught the only fish the next morning, a Kokanee salmon. We had some rain and cool temps, but enough clear sky to make for an enjoyable trip.
On the way home, we dropped by our mountain property. A deer was visiting. Everyone was delighted to see the progress. We now have a driveway making entry onto the land possible for passenger cars and RVs, not just four wheel drive trucks.
Then July 4th, we went to our neighborhood park for an informal, impromptu, and totally unprofessional fireworks display. Many city ordinances were violated. Miraculously, no one was hurt. We much prefer a small celebration to the huge crowds at city sponsored fireworks displays.
Seeing antelope and deer made me think of the song Home on the Range. This was a uniquely Western American weekend. I think the only thing we were missing was watermelon!
