Fun with Lee and Chris and their wives. Dad is reading the Declaration of Independence at a gathering in Etowah. I hope to go go down there!

UPDATED: What kind of fun is a small town Independence Day celebration? Hundreds of people, all shapes and sizes, all walks of life – rich, poor – myriad ballcaps – grandmothers in their freshly coifed hair alongside teenagers in their pale goth make-up and knee-high combat boots. Truly a democratic scene! My father is one of a few elected to read the Declaration of Independence and other historic documents. Another reader is Mr. Frank Lowery, one of my favorite high school teachers. His style of teaching world history and geography have given me the fodder for thousands of conversions in the 20 years since I took his class.
