What are your July 4th plans?

Every Fourth of July we have this huge picnic where all the people we grew up with come back. No matter where they have moved to, they all come home. Some come from as far as Japan. They fiind a way to show up for this wonderful reunion.

What are your plans?

I'm planning on getting my butt handed to me in a road race. Should be fun!

I dunno, when's the fourth of July?

Ohhh.



I don't have any specific plans. I might sit around and do a movie marathon. Or laundry. So exciting!

I am going to find a British merchant ship, hopefully one owned by Lord Tipton, and toss it's cargo into the harbor.

Ride to a huge Parade, one of the oldest in the country, with a million other intersting bikes and cyclists.

Then pig out at the cookout. Then ride to the fireworks.

I'm going to get drunk and blow off two fingers and a toe with a cherry bomb. Then I'll hit a truck while driving myself to the emergency clinic.

I'll probably start drinking in the morning and figure out step 2 a few hours later.

I'm riding with friends in the morning, having a bunch of people over in the early evening and hanging out.

Blow Up Copious Amounts Of Stuff!!!

For real, my crew and I usually throw every spare cent we have at explosives. And one of my friends is a licensed pyrotechnician with wholesale access to everything from industrial blasting goods to professional aerial displays.

Trying to avoid the crowds here in the Cradle of Liberty, but definitely a nice long, early morning ride, maybe to Valley Forge (gotta pay respects to the real George W, ya know ). Fireworks at night (without sitting through the Hall and Oates show- too crowded). Then packing for Amsterdam!

Playing tennis with my tennis group for the first time in six months -- it should be quite ugly and brutal.

Then I'm gonna join my tennis group for our 60th annual 4th of July picnic. My German friends will join me, as they play with this group every time they're here.

I will not be riding, though, as I have no desire to run across delinquent teens with fireworks ("Hey, let's see if we can hit that moving target with these Roman candles!") or drunk drivers....

If they are up between 6 am and 10 am, then they can take aim and fire at me.

That's called interval drills.

Yum. I'll be grilling as well - smoking a pork shoulder - pulled pork NC-style - good eats.
