Friday Five- fireworks edition


I have to admit that I am chuckling to myself a little; how strange it seems for me a Brit to be posting the Friday Five on 4th July! I realise that most of our revgals will be celebrating in some way today, but I hope that you can make a little room for Friday Five! From my short stay in Texas my memories of the celebrations are of fireworks and picnics, one year we went in to central Houston to watch the fireworks and hear the Symphony Orchestra play, we were welcomed and included, and that meant a lot!

So lets have a bit of fun:

1. Barbeque's or picnics ( or are they essentially the same thing?)

2. The park/ the lake/ the beach or staying at home simply being?

3. Fireworks- love 'em or hate 'em?

4. Parades- have you ever taken part- share a memory...

5. Time for a musical interlude- if you could sum up holidays in a piece of music what would it be?

  21. I played a rather unremarkable game over at my place ...but you need to see the beautiful quilt pattern, "Fourth of July," that I found to illustrate my post.
