A busy Fourth of July for me — and no appearance at a lake

July 5, 2012

I hope you all had a great Fourth of July. We went to the “Boom in the Valley” fireworks display at the Talihina Hospital, which was put on by the Choctaw Nation Tuesday night. It was a great show, and we didn't get home until 11:30 p.m. — that's way past my bedtime!
The next morning, we were up early because we rode in the Wister Fourth of July Parade in the Smith Chevrolet truck, throwing candy with Brittany “Happy” Frazier and A.J. McDaniel. We had a blast, and I swear I knew everybody there!
