See Hope's hat. She gave all the money she had to a dog and cat rescue called, "Stop the suffering." They gave her the hat. She loves dogs and can't have any because of her mom's allergies. Her bedroom has huskie dogs as the decor. She saw one in the 4th parade and cried. Grammy gave her some money later because I was so proud of her for doing what she did.

We ventured downtown in the heat for the 4th of July festivities. Our small town looks like a Norman Rockwell painting during the 4th. But this year it was different. The downtown was without power. No banks, no restaurants, no drug store. Many people are still without power, including my son and his family. Instead of greeting some one with ,"How are you?", it was "Do you have power?" Even Goose was asking everyone. There were power workers downtown working during the fair. There were alot of people not happy that the 4th went on while they didn't have power. Anyway, it was blazing hot while we were there. The Colorado kids could hardly take the heat with the humidity. They aren't use to the humidity. We really worked hard keeping them cool. Afterwards we all went to Bob Evans. It was open but deserted. We were wild and crazy and laughing and a bit too loud. But it was fun. So much fun watching the cousins interact. My son and family are coming again today and spending the night this time. So it will be wild and cray again tonight. Hope you are all staying cool and safe in these temps. Supposed to be 100 today and tomorrow. I want winter.
