It’s time to celebrate America’s independence with The Fourth Of July. It’s always a good idea to think about what the holiday is about (America, of course), but it’s also a time to try to get together with friends and family and celebrate our freedom in this great country. So what I decided to do is to make a list of some things that I hope I get the chance to do. It’s actually a list that probably could be used for any weekend, but with the holiday, it just gives me a reason to post it.

I should mention that this list could be used for almost any weekend as long as it’s somewhat warm outside.

    Have a backyard fire

    Get the wood, set it in the fire pit, start the fire, get the chair in place and grab a beer.

  • Lounge Chair, Beer and Rake (Bro.Lou Roberts Collection)

    Kick back in the lounge chair

    Generally a daytime favorite.

    Burgers, hot dogs, steak, almost anything

  • Lawn Mower (Bro.Lou Roberts Collection)

    Mow the lawn

    Well, it has to be done. I didn’t say that they were all fun.
