Independence Day 2017

Percy:  If today is Independence Day, does that mean we'll all have to get jobs to support ourselves now?

Buddy:  No, it means the fireworks will stop tonight and Jan's feet will be 45 pounds lighter.

Percy:  Wow, they must really have been swollen!

Buddy:  No, not swollen.  But since Saturday Marcus has been spending his evenings parked on her feet.

Percy:  Oh, that's right.  He's been guarding Jan's feet so she can't panic and run away.  Or so he's claimed.

Buddy: I don't remember him being so frightened of fireworks before.

Percy:  At least the 4-day weekend celebration is almost over.  Then Marcus can take a long nap to recover.

Buddy:  We all love to watch the Clydesdales.  Perhaps this very short video of the Budweiser Clydesdales in a 4th of July parade will help him relax.

  16. We sure hope your 4th was happy and somewhat quiet, dear friends. We hate those boomies, but we're lucky in that Gracie and Zoe do not seem fazed by them.
