Happy Independence Day! I’m proud to be an American every day, but the 4th holds a special place in my heart. Maybe it’s because I grew up in a town where there’s a great amateur rodeo over the 3rd and 4th, with (of course) a parade the morning of the 4th. My mom was the secretary of that rodeo for much of my growing-up, and I packed flag in the parade and grand entry for many years. Here’s some proof. And now I feel really old!
Here’s one from that same December, on a little bit nicer day. While I have recently been described as “freakishly tall”, I AM standing on the flatbed.
I’ll be spending my Independence Day just down the road in Terry, Montana at a local rodeo. Even though I won’t be at my hometown shindig, I have to get my fix somewhere. I hope that you have a great 4th of July – celebrate by eating BEEF!
Yours in travel,
