1. Barbeque's or picnics ( or are they essentially the same thing?)
Barbecues conjure images of tables and chairs, rather than eating on the ground on a blanket. I'll take a table - not much of a ground sitter.
2. The park/ the lake/ the beach or staying at home simply being?
The lake - simply being.
3. Fireworks- love 'em or hate 'em?
Love 'em. Unless it's just noise in my neighborhood. That's really not much fun.
4. Parades- have you ever taken part- share a memory...
Oy, have I done parades. But on Memorial Day, not the Fourth. School's out, so my band isn't in season. Best parade memory? Marching with my high school kids down Main Street USA in Disney.
5. Time for a musical interlude- if you could sum up holidays in a piece of music what would it be?
Well, the 1812 Overture, of course! Right now...
