Happy 4th of July

I must say, the 4th is the best holiday. Other than my birthday that is. It will be a national holiday someday. I woke up this morning, the air ripe with the smell of ketchup. Yes, ketchup at 6am, some people start early.

I tried sleeping after puppy and bird duty, but couldn't so I got up and showered and went to Wal-Mart to pick up the things I was asked to bring to the party. And I needed a bathing suit (I wasn't about to drive 36 miles round trip just to get mine from home (and give Cocoa a false sense of "I'm home"), I just drove to the Mart and spent 15 bucks on a new top and some sleep shorts. All of which had the desired affect on Mr. Amazing.

Did you know Wal-Mart doesn't sell waffle fries? At least not at the store I went to. But I knew they were out there so I moved on to another store.

I found them at the grocery store later on.

Then, Mr. Amazing's house. I was the first to arrive at 1pm. I guess the "We'll be at the pool by 11:30am plan" was thrown out in favor of sleep.

Anyway, I arrive, the friends arrive. Mr. A and I go shopping. There was a cheese debate and 10 minutes of picking up and setting down. I think the final cheese choice was an excellent one. Deli sliced Cheddar, very tasty. Much beer was also purchased.

Then, It's onto the pool. It is a good pool and no one was having sex in the hot tub like last time. For some reason it was closed off and barricaded. I wonder why. We sit around and talk and drink and slathered sunscreen on each other I get some very complimentary things said about me by Mr. A. He makes me happy. I go and do puppy stuff and come back the party. BBQing ensues, we eat and drink and have fun and then I have to do more puppy stuff (also, the cutest gold retriever puppy was at the party, cutest!).

Before puppy stuff however are fire works, from a balcony, from all over the city. Lots of shows happening all over, it was beautiful. Also, I saw the guy from the grocery store (the one who never remembers my name, I'd link that post, but I can't find it) on the balcony, he gave me a beer and then shuffled off when he was introduced to my ketchup covered, 6 foot 1 BF. It was very funny.

And then alone time and a 5:30am wake up call because I have responsibilities that I couldn't pawn them off on anyone. Damn my well developed work ethic!

There was rain, but it never lasts long so it didn't dampen our spirits.

Happy days. Did the Golden sprint for the water, or was he/she tethered ?

Dogs aren't allowed in the pool area, he was just at the upstairs party.
