What a beautiful day today! The sun is shining, the sky is bright blue and there is this gentle breeze, just enough for flying the flags that decorate the many homes around us.
By now, Ken is pretty much used to the idea that the entire country is celebrating his birthday. For years, we were always envious, but concurrently happy for him, having fireworks around the country, music and dancing events everywhere and sizzling hot dogs, hamburgers and juicy stakes on BBQ grills, that we could smell the aromas even through the computer. What luck to be born on July fourth.
It is also a great time to take advantage of the many summer fruits displayed so attractively in Supermarkets, Farmer’s Markets, and at the kiosks and stands of individual farmers that you have to hold yourself not to grab one peach or apricot and bite into it while the juices are running down at the side of your mouth (although that may not be a pretty picture). Today, however, is the day when you want something red, white and blue and that is what I created for our birthday guy.
