The Fourth

Happy Fourth, everyone!

The office is closed today, so I have some time to play on the computer a bit. It's not that I'm not busy, though. Deb and I have family in town for the holiday.

Perhaps we'll catch one of the town parades. Here in Vermont, they're a true piece of Americana. The state's largest, in nearby Brandon, took place on Saturday. Today there's a parade in Bristol, a few minutes drive north and east of Middlebury.

We've had good luck weather-wise so far, as the rain has held off long enough for most marchers to make their way down the parade routes.
