Happy Fourth of July, everyone.
Lots of history happened today - besides what happened 237 years ago.... 150 years ago, Vicksburg fell, and "The Father of Waters again goes unvexed to the sea." At Gettysburg, the armies counted their losses and Lee prepared to leave. There was another year and a half of killing to go, but by this day, the military situation was pretty well settled.
Anyway - here today, things are rather less bellicose; the only casualties today are going to be swordfish steaks and hamburgers. Summer has arrived finally, hot ad humid, and going to stay that way a while... and now? I will leave you with a bit of Jimi, because, why not?
