Happy Independence Day!

Once again this year, I was happy to be invited down to the home of Sue and Gerry on Keuka Lake for the 4th of July.  They are my son, John's, in-laws.

A number of years back, Caitlin, one of Sue and Gerry's grandchildren came up with the idea of having a parade on the 4th.  From its humble beginnings, it has mushroomed!  One of these years, they are going to need a permit!  Below are pictures from my day.  Thanks, Sue and Gerry, for inviting me.  I truly enjoyed it.


The crowd gathers, both participants and onlookers.  I wish I had gotten a picture of it, but before the beginning of the parade, all the children recited the Pledge of Allegiance to our flag.  It is refreshing that there are everyday people instilling values in their children in this crazy, mixed up world we live in.


These are my three grandsons, Kevin, Jake, and Andrew, along with their cousins, Caitlin and Steven.  You are looking at five of the best mannered kids you could ever hope to meet.




This year there were three floats.  This is one.


These were two little girls in the crowd that I thought were cute so I took their picture.

This is Bingo, one of my granddogs!


This is John and Jen, my son and daughter-in-law. . . one of them!  John forgot to take off his shades and I didn't catch that till after I snapped the picture!
