We just got back from watching a fireworks display on the belvedere. Charlotte got a big kick out of it. She oohed and aahed a lot. It wasn’t as crowded there as it is during Thunder Over Louisville, so we had the luxury of being able to sit on the bleachers.
There were a couple of horsedrawn carriages there, so we watched people to see who would step in the horse manure that was lying here and there on the street. A lot of folks in what appeared to be new shoes were breaking them in by stepping in dung.
I love to watch people. I love to see all the diversity in a large crowd. I think it’s hilarious when people step in manure.
Happy birthday USA! You are 227 years old, and you’re still beautiful.
