Hey, Everybody - Happy Fourth of July!

And Happy 36th Anniversary today to Tim and Rosemary Kinsella. I remember flying home to Washington, D.C. the day after their wonderful wedding, getting there just in time for the fireworks celebrating the country's 200th birthday. Pretty spectacular - as are Tim and Rose.

Love you all!
