Happy 4th of July.

For those wanting something unique to honor our vets, the Traveling Vietnam War Memorial is Hampton Community Park Through Tuesday.  It’s free and open 24 hours a day.  Hampton Community Park is just up in Allison Park, see link for details to get the address you can put in your GPS.

The Battle of Homestead celebrates 125 years this Thursday.  This was a pivotal point in workers rights and if you can there are several celebrations in Homestead.  While in Homestead, friends of mine own Blue Dust (the name is taken from the residue from steel making).  Jerry’s family own the restaurant, Jerry is famed for his smoked brisket, it’s amazing.  When my sister goest there, she orders 2 one then and one for lunch the next day.  Kathleen, my friend that did the amazing murals on my first floor did an air brush mural of steel mills on the walls.  Sara, Jerry’s daughter did the mosaic tile bar top.  I shows the Mon River, and bridges crossing it.

Here’s da kidz chilling on the holiday weekend:

Rayzette came up to me later and said “Dad, RJ does love me.”

My Crocosmia came back this year, they haven’t flowered in two years:

That’s it, I just wanted to wish everyone a Happy 4th of July,
