I am hoping all of you are rejoicing in your Independence Day celebrations and that you will keep yourselves, and your children and your four-legged children safe during the fireworks tonight. Every year children are hurt during fireworks displays done at home, and EVERY YEAR, our beloved pets bolt and run trying to get away from the noise and confusion. Help your pet be safe this year, make sure they are where they won't be frightened and where they won't hurt themselves if they do become frightened. This year we've already had one poor pup lost when it was introduced to fireworks for the May 24 celebrations. And it is heartbreaking. I don't know if they will every find their girl...she bolted into the woods and was lost. So, dear hearts, keep your kids and fur kids safe tonight, and otherwise, eat and drink and party to your heart's content, being ever thankful for your wonderful country and your wonderful constitution. Blessings on you all! E.
