Have a very happy, safe, and enjoyable 4th, and remember to do your blood glucose checks and take the required medicine and stay hydrated. Very easy to let this slide for the day, but why take the chance!

Almost forgot, use that sunscreen so tomorrow you won't have any regrets:)

while it is still the 4th here, I pray that everyone had a blessed independence day! Suzy & I spent a day with her church picnicking and boating on Lake "Naugahyde" (kidding Suzy!) near Milwaukee.

Unfortunately she went out in the boat without sunscreen and the boat's motor quit on them and they were out in the sun longer than she expected, so now she has some reddish skin where it was exposed to the sun. I just pray it won't hurt her too badly tomorrow AM.

Jayabee52.. Sorry to hear Suzy got sunburned. Not fun. Try using Aloe Gel cooled in the refridgerator. It is very soothing to the skin.

Happy 4th to you too. Today is my free day. Not checking anything today. I will take my meds. Have plenty of Crystal Light to take with me today and I don't use sun screen. Enjoy your day.

Thanks, just got back from the movies, earlier we had a car show with chili cook off and beer. I don't drink beer, a wus when it comes to hot stuff, but love the old classics cars. Now we begin the traditional foods of ribs, mac salad, etc and then fireworks, don't get much better then today:)

I do insulin so can't ever have a free day, and I'm sooo pale with auburn hair that sunscreen is a must, is there any 500's out thereas I'm sure I'll still get burned, haha

I am African American and I don't use sunscreen because A. I am not going to be in the sun unless I am on the beach or have no choice and B. I hate being extremely hot.

I am allergic to beer but a little bit of hot chili is ok as long as it isn't a lot. I will go for the ribs. and a little bit of Mac salad. We have Fireworks at our Harbor but I don't want to be in a crowd of 200,000 people watching them. I was going to walk over two blocks to watch from a bridge but I decided it is too humid to walk two blocks.

My sister and I spent the afternoon with a friend and his parents in their yard eating crabs, grilled corn, salad, hotdogs and potato salad. I opted not to eat the corn and potato salad and stuck with crabs, water and a small dish of no sugar added Ice Cream. Crabs are not a filler even if you eat a dozen and we ate half a bushel. Now I am starving and about to go trolling for food.

I love classic cars. There is a Cadillac Parade in our community and it features classic Cadillac's and the older ones are better built and look much better than the new ones.

Good for you! Our car show had so many different and BEAUTIFUL cars, I want them all. I even saw the1969 camero that I drove in high school, but in the late 70's, it was my brother's car and when he went into the marines he gave it to me. Let me tell you the guys hung all over that car and loved listening to the engine when it started, but to me it was just a car. My husband now, would drive it then and couldn't understand my attitude towards it. I did race it though and at one time fried all the wiring. I actually learned how to drive at the raceway and well, I didn't outgrow the lead foot for years:) There were a couple of Caddies today.

Gotta go as it is firework time!!
