Happy Independence Day 2007!
I had a good Fourth of July. My dad barbequed burgers and hot dogs. I got to hand out little American flags to people - most everyone smiled and seemed quite pleased, and I was even saluted by one guy who said "I've done this before...". I got to see some new soldiers taking the Oath of Enlistment prior to the First Pitch. I sang, along with everyone else at the ballpark, the National Anthem, before the game. More "God Bless America" during the 7th inning stretch. I got to watch a baseball game - the Express won 9-8 over the Omaha Royals. I also got to wish a 93-year-young WWII vet named Joe a Happy Birthday. After the game, there was a big fireworks display, too. All in all, good times.
