Happy Fourth

Fourth of July Herman
Herman was absolutely thrilled to spend a couple of hours at American Tobacco tonight for some music and people-watching. He just loves people. Other dogs, not so much, but there were only a couple of them. I don’t know how he feels about fireworks. I have a feeling that, unlike a lot of dogs, he wouldn’t mind them, but we left before they started. I’m content to watch A Capitol Fourth on PBS. This year: Jimmy Smits! Watching the D.C. Mall show and fireworks is one of those experiences that really looks great on a high-def TV. It’s all great in person, too, except for the waiting five or six hours in the shade-less Mall heat for everything to start.

  1. I got to watch to fireworks over the Washington Monument when I lived in D.C. and it ws splendid despite the crowds. I really felt very patriotic listening to the “Star Spsngled Banner” play there.

    Herman has a great smile!

    Take care,
    Miriam

  2. I watched the Macy’s fireworks over the Hudson River. On tv, of course. How in the world did they do those “smiley faces” fireworks? The square-shaped fireworks were cool, too. Where’s the cool weather?
