It's been a quiet 4th around here. We went to visit a favorite nephew in rural Peculiar, Missouri. He's usually here with the rest of the crowd on Independence Day, but since our plans fizzled, we decided to ride the Honda out to see the house he's built. He's still working on some of the rooms.
That's the back of his house. His first roofer decided the roof was too steep and quit, but Scotty finally found someone to do it.
That's Scotty and his very pregnant wife. Their daughter will be born in August, if she sticks to schedule.
This is Trevor, who was disappointed that we weren't having our usual gathering today, but was looking forward to fireworks at home tonight.
This is one of the most laid-back, cool families you'll ever meet.
Scotty, if you found this journal per my instructions... I TOLD you I'd have you plastered all over the Internet!
