Today is the first day of July and we are on the countdown to the 4th. Guess what? Were gonna have a party.
Normally this time of year we spend the day boating with a bunch of our buds. Unfortunately this year that will not be possible because of the oil spill in the Gulf.
I am saddened by that, but not because we can't go boating. My sadness stems more from the actual oil spill in the Gulf. The marine life that is being compromised on a daily basis. The species that may face extinction due to this calamity.
But this Sunday, while we won't be forgetting this, we are going to turn our attention to entertaining about twenty of our closest friends. From noon until six we will be hanging in our back yard. There will be a seriously competitive game of water volleyball and I am sure that my team will rein supreme.
The menu is going to be completely American. Hamburgers, hot dogs, turkey burgers, pasta salad, fruit salad, baked beans, potato chips with lots of watermelon and whatever Captain Kid decides to make for dessert.
There will be wine, beer and a couple of pitchers of mango margarita's. A party isn't a party without a pitcher of my special mango margarita's and since I am feeling particularly patriotic, and the watermelons are fantastically sweet right now I may even dazzle my guests with a pitcher of watermelon margarita's.
After, I will have plenty of great stories to share with you guys and I can't tell you how grateful I am for that. As you know I have been feeling the pressure to come up with some new topics.
This party is so going to be my saving grace. Stay tuned...we got some good stories coming. But in the meantime...tell me how you are going to spend yours?
