|Showing off the metal|
Cheryl grabbed all the free food that was offered and gave it to me. We then sat on the park lawn and I ate most of it...including the free hot dog. I guess there was beer, but we did not wait around to find it.

|Tractors everywhere! Parking nowhere.|
|Wellman Iowa in the 4th of July!|
|This..on a paper plate? for $10?|
So....now that we are home..and have to get up to actually work tomorrow. I'll probably wait for the fireworks and post pictures of them later. IF I can stay awake that long. ( I probably will, but Cheryl is sure to abandon me.) Hope everyone has a great 4th and can enjoy the local fireworks. Looks like it will be another pleasant evening again tonight. I'm not sure why I find them so enchanting, but perhaps my inner child still refuses to give up that magic.
