Last night was the 4th of July show  and cookout at the nursing home. They had the celebration for the patients, family and friends. It was a fun evening.They had hot dogs, potato chips, root beer floats, lemonade, tea, just to name a few of the things that they did for them. They had the firework display and made sure that their patients  were all comfortable watching the show. Getting them blankets, if they needed them. They had entertainment for them while we waited for the fireworks to start. There was a dunkin tank and that seem to be the favorite thing of the evening especially when the head of nursing was there. She did get dunked, but they took it all in stride, which made it enjoyable. 
I know that I have another family 4th of July celebration. I am to show up at my daughter's house after I leave the nursing home. The boys are excited  to shoot off fireworks.
 The auction is over and the place is so empty. They made a mess in what use to be my office which was totally uncalled for, but at least they are going to bring in the paper shredding truck with so much to be destroyed. 
I just wanted to let you know that I am still here. My 14 year old grandson has been helping me the last couple of weeks. He is very good help and that way it gives him something to do. His payment is lunch which is o.k. because I enjoy the time spent with him. This weekend, I will be going to a horse show that benefits cancer. I can't wait to take pictures of everyone in their pink shirts, then we will have a supper that night at a very reasonable price to finish off the evening. Fun time. Have a great safe 4th of July.

Happy 4th of July to you Shirley. It made me feel good to think your 14 yr. old g.son is helping you. Then you can have lunch with him and talk together. Enjoy yourself. xoxo,Susie
