July 4th was always one of my favorite holidays growing up. It wasn't just the fireworks, though I loved them. But for many years, I got to go to a (dinky!) town carnival. My memories are of grilled sausage with peppers and of chuck-a-luck, somehow a legal game even when I was a single digit lad (or so my memory banks say). And I vividly, and accurately, remember my dog shaking in the shower every time fireworks went off...

So to all of you celebrating at dinky or huge carnivals or sitting at home or working or shaking in the shower... happy July 4th!
