All American Plans

Sorry, but this one was just too sweet not to post again.

I have big, big plans for the 4th:

  • Put up a blog post (check)
  • Water my new sod in the front yard (working on it as I write)
  • Run 5 miles
  • Watch a little Wimbledon (but where have all the McEnroes gone? Thank goodness for the Williams sisters)
  • Go see a movie (I’m open to suggestions, but I’m leaning toward WALL-E)
  • Cookout with the parents-in-law (FIL grills the best burger in Huntsville-seriously)
  • Go see the Huntsville Stars play the Birmingham Barons and watch fireworks afterwards
  • Catch a little of the US Olympic Track and Field Trials from Hayward Field in Eugene, Oregon (no cooler T&F venue in the universe)
  • Fall blissfully asleep on the couch
  • Wake up at 1:00 AM and stumble to bed

If those aren’t All American plans, I don’t know what is.

Happy 7/4 to all. Be sure to wear your safety Googles goggles!


I recently saw with my own eyes The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution, The Bill of Rights and one of several copies of The Magna Carta.

I’ll have a little more to say about that in my next Huntsville Times community column which is set for 7/13.

Let freedom ring, baby.

    Mission accomplished.

    Hope you enjoyed your 4th! Did you get to go see Wall-E???

    My almost-4-year-old nephew (we had his party yesterday) wants to see it, and I’d like to take him. I heard it was really good.

    I enjoyed WALL-E a lot.

    Some of my friends did not, however. I think they were expecting lots of smiles and syrup. It has some very grown up messages, but the kids in the audience yesterday seemed to enjoy it nonetheless.

    But it’s no Cars 2.

    The Huntsville Stars won 2-1 with a walk-off homer in the bottom of the 10th. That was the opening shot of a first-rate fireworks display.

    Go America!
