Sigh.

If we only had darkness here in Alaska at this time of year. I show my 13-year-old daughter pictures like these, of fireworks and such, and then regale her with stories of my youth in Ohio, where swooshing arcs of colored lights and magnificent starbursts depicting the American flag could we seen against the darkened sky.

She's put such "tales" in the same category as my "walked to school five miles each day, uphill both ways in the snow" stories. She especially doesn't buy the snow part. (Smart Alaska-grown girl!)

Cold July

This is not unusual for the San Francisco Bay Area. Often the fireworks at the San Francisco Marina are obscured by cold damp fog. As they may be tonight. 7/4/08
Happy Birthday America!

Cold July?

It must have been a cold July 4th considering the coats and jackets they're wearing.

An excellent year

I was 3 months old that day!

Sparklers

Bravo. Great pic.
