As is our custom, we at Chez Shea are giving ourselves up to jollification and merriment all the day long. We head off to Br’er Mike’s house on Long Lake down in Lacey for a glorious time of live music (Br’er Mike is quite a fine sax and clarinet player and plays lots of gigs around the Western Washington area with the Blues Bentley Band and Blues Attitude). Along with the music goes lots of food, some dancing, plenty of laughter, more food, billiards, and a great big beautiful lake for swimming in under a great big beautiful blue sky.
Then, at night, comes the fireworks for the Glorious Fourth. America, Old Girl, you’ve made it around the sun another year, and we salute you! You’ve been a good mum, all in all. Thanks!
