Happy 4th of July

4th of July has always been a fun holiday for me. Growing up, we always had picnics and celebrations full of red/white/&blue, along with the family pets running around trying to steal the food from the BBQ. And of course, a summer holiday wouldn't be complete without the sounds of a baseball game on the TV.

It's a time to feel pride of being able to do the things we do in this country, and to be able to have the pets we have and treat them the way we do. For all the crazy, negative things in this country, there are also the happy, positive things that we need to remember this time of year.

So, I'll be celebrating like I always do; accidentally dropping food for the pets, watching fireworks, taking in a ballgame, and listening to the songs that only get played this time of year; including "We're Coming to America," "God Bless the USA," and all the classic American Marches.

Happy holidays to your family, friends, and pets. And let's go Yankees!!
