A Northern Redneck’s 4th of July

Well, I hope all of you had a happy and safe Independence Day! I thought that I would digress from the fascinating world of animal urine and give you a glimpse into the PeeMan’s own 4th of July celebration. First up we have a glimpse of the PeeMan’s Waterpark! On the left, you will see my eldest grandson enjoying the giant slip and slide. Next up was the pool – I might add that I built this with my own two hands! Ordered the liner on the computer and with a little trial and a lot of error – voila – oasis of cool for enjoyment by both young and old.waterslidepoolfrisbeegolf Other options for Independence Day fun – our very own 15 hole disc golf course. Two of my daughters and a granddaughter played a fierce round ending with the eldest daughter coming out on top by 1 point.  Add a grass bocci ball court measured to exact specifications, some tasty barbequed ribs, chicken, burgers and hotdogs, ice cold beverages, family and friends, and even a spontaneous outburst of patriotic song capped off by a trip to a coastal town for a fireworks display and that equals a pretty dang good holiday!

On a serious note, we had a terrible tragedy at the parade of a town nearby when a man was accidentally crushed by an antique firetruck. Lots of families and children witnessed the incident, and it cast a dark shadow on the day. The family of the man killed and those who witnessed the scene are in our prayers and I would ask you to keep them in yours.

Until I find more words. . .The PeeMan
