  • Use common sense when celebrating independence

    I’ve never been a huge fan of fireworks.
    They scare me and I fear for the person setting them off. I just get nervous and jittery.
    I suppose I’ve written too many stories about the hazards of fireworks over the years; each one starting off with a horror story about something exploding before it should have, someone losing a finger or their body being burned.
    Not comfortable around fireworks doesn’t even come close to my fears.

  • Travel time

    When it comes to traveling, my oldest daughter thinks she’s cursed.
    I don’t know about “cursed,” but she definitely has had her share of mishaps.
    Last summer she and granddaughter Caroline took a trip from their home in Virginia to visit my other daughter in Charlotte, N.C.
    The three of them went to Charleston, S.C. and Caroline barfed, which put a damper on their plans. Then Caroline stayed sick, ending Alison’s plans for a side trip to visit a friend on the way home.
