Every July 4th, aka Independence Day, the peeps head out to the courtyard to grab a good seat to watch Macy*s 4th of July fireworks. They've been kind enough to have it on the Hudson River for the past few years. There are no big crowds—only neighbors who live in the complex—and no traffic to contend with. Here I'll mention that I'm left alone in the apartment while they're out there oohing and aahing. There were a couple of nice fireworks' displays in June that the peeps could watch from their window, whether they took place in Central Park, Times Square or da Bronx.
Here's a short video that TW took of a small part of last year's Macy*s fireworks display from our courtyard. Please excuse the quality. If you look closely at the 2nd part, you can see the Empire State Building lit up in red, white and blue in the background. You can watch it on YouTube here. The music is a song called Independence Day by the Orphan Trains. The lady singing is somehow distantly related to TW although they've never met.
Enjoy July 4th safely. Be responsible and remember that fireworks can scare your furry family members so keep your cats indoors and keep a leash on your dog so he/she doesn't run away. The Durham-Middlefield Patch has some good tips for keeping us safe on this holiday. You might also enjoy into Infographic from the good folks at Petfinder.com. Click to biggify it.
Hope you enjoy our new summer look, created by the very talented Glogirly. Even ghetto kittehs have to go to the beach once in awhile. Excuse me while I rifle through these unattended beach bags to see if there's any
green papers noms. For a great header or for any of your design needs, look no further than Glogirly Designs. Disclaimer: I was NOT paid to say that.
