Last Friday evening we strolled down to our towns Independence Day celebration.  In case you were unaware it has been quite hot in Indiana.   We sat along one side of the river while they set off fireworks on the other side.  Directly behind me, two tents away...which was nice and close was the Philharmonic Orchestra playing some wonderful songs for our enjoyment.  As they started playing Stars and Stripes....the fireworks began and the two of them together were so wonderful I could hardly stand it.  I don't think I can watch fireworks again without an orchestra playing.  My husband snapped this picture with his phone and I thought I would tackle my vanity and share it with you all.   After the fireworks at @ 10:30 p.m. we walked back home....the heat index was 106°.    

    This afternoon we were invited over to some friends house for fresh lobster from Massachusetts.  The friends are from that area and when they go back home to visit they usually bring lobsters back and have a big lobster dinner.

She would put 4 in a pot at a time and cook them for about 15 minutes.
They brought 22 live lobsters back.

My crustacean.

It was a ton of fun with @ 18 people gathered around.   Margaret found out she really liked lobster and I found out that I didn't.  Chris liked it of course.
