The annual Fourth of July picnic was a celebration of time and freedom. We'd all watched the parade, earlier, because that's what you do on the Fourth, and we believe in it.
Our parade features Scout troops in uniform, the high school band, floats with pretty girls ... well, okay, it's actually Delbert's convertible with signs on the doors ... and little kids proudly leading their dogs down our main street. In other words, pretty much everyone.
