Solomon’s Island July Fourth

The fourth of July is just around the corner. So I decided to ask Tim what he wants to do this year. Last year we went to the boardwalk on Solomon’s Island to see the fireworks but they had moved the location. This year Solomon’s says they are moving the fireworks back to their original location due to public DEMAND. Last year you could not see the fire works from all points on the island.So hopefully they have moved them to the center of the river this year. So that is where Tim wants to go again this year. Hip Hip Hooray. There is not alot to do on Solomon’s Boardwalk. You have to get there about 10 or 11 in the morning to get a parking space and then all there is to do is people watch or shop in the over priced little tourist shops in town. Or watch the boats out on the water. I want a parade,picnic and then the fireworks. Not just sitting around all day long in the humid hot air. But I will go no complaints as this is what Tim has done almost every year for years. It is not easy to get this old tiger to change his stripes, so I just sit back and chill. One day I know it will change and I can not wait to do something else one year.

This year I am planning on bringing Fried Chicken Wings, Potato Salad, Macaroni Salad, Tossed salad, and cold cuts. There will also be plenty of cold sodas, lemonade, bottled water and of course sweet Tea brought along. Along with watermelon, lopes and honeydew and any other fruits we can think of. For dessert I think a nice patriotic Red, White, and Blue cake or pie will be just grand.

Then on the fifth we will have a nice sized cook out. Everyone has to bring dish or something for the grill. Along with their own drinks. I have no idea as to what I am doing yet. I really wish we could just do everything here at home on the fourth and just chill the rest of the week end.

So I hope everyone has a TERRIFIC JULY 4TH. Enjoy the fireworks and most of all GOD BLESS THE USA. Remember don’t drive if you have been drinking. Lets keep the roads safe this holiday.
