July 4th

Happy Fourth of July to all in the USA. It's the day that is the noisiest of the year. No matter the rules, there are still many who have to set off dangerous fireworks. And even the odd gun. Since they shoot into the air, someday the bullet will come back down and enter them.

Today is also my hubby's sister's birthday. She and her husband have invited us to come have dinner and sit around the pool with the. It is what we usually do on the 4th. Last year hubby sat outside and watched the fireworks displays that were happening all over town. There is a big one at the nearby junior college. We can see the highest ones from our yard.

I usually stay inside as the dogs ar scared. If I am in the room with them, they will at least relax and try to sleep. But this year with Penny, we don't know how she will react. If she gets too bad, I will stay home and Bill will go to his sister's. I don't mind because I don't want the dogs to be scared in their own house.

I finally got in some drawing time. I did the one for the WDE this week. I think I have 16 items done for the scavenger hunt. And I did a couple of the animals in the pet drawing thread.

Hi Jeanne, thankyou so much for taking the time to look at my blog and leave a comment. I hope you had a hppy 4th of July and the animals did not get too upset. They have restricted the use of fireworks over here to the point where you need a licence and about the only time we see them these days is on New Years Eve or at the big organised gatherings. People shooting guns into the air is a bit scarey though, we have very strict gun control laws here which I am very glad about.

From your sketches here and in the scavenger hunt it looks like you had a great 4th! I remember when I was a kid how our poor dog would hid under the bed and cry when there were fireworks. It took hours to get her to stop shaking.

And the fireworks are still going off at night. Can't wait until they run out of them. Penny still won't go outside and play. And she loves it outside.
