Wonderful 4th of July. Once again I carried the National Colors for our post in the 4th of July Parade. Once again it was a lovely day to get out and celebrate the birthday of our great Nation. One thing that disturbs me is the lack of respect the youth of todays has for our flag. Not only is it the youth but some adults too.

Another hot Sunday here in North Carolina. I am smoking some pork tenderloin on my grill. I hope it turns out. I used the recipe I always use for pork spare ribs minus cooking it in the oven.

What a hard week. I was so exhausted Friday after work. I was glad to be able to sleep in. I got to finally make it to the doctors this week. I now have to attend physical therapy. I am wondering if I really should try to stay in the army or hang up my boots and dogtags and retire. Family is well and plan on spending time with the wife this weekend.

Strangest thing happened today. My window on my truck broke. I can't get it fixed untill tuesday. No one seems to be working on Sunday to repair auto glass. What kind of luck do I have. All I did was close my door and the glass busted. Oh well, life goes on.
