Two days off

"The second day of July, 1776, will be the most memorable epoch in the history of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding generations as the great anniversary festival. It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance, by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations, from one end of this continent to the other, from this time forward forever more.

Rowe: Celebrating Independence Day

I am looking forward to a long holiday weekend doing absolutely nothing. You know you've got a bad case of the summertime blahs when you look forward to doing nothing. Sometimes you stay so busy doing nothing is a welcome relief but it rarely works like that. June has been quite a busy month with birthdays, holidays, baby showers and weddings filling nearly every weekend, but, finally, we get an extra day to kick back and relax a little.
