I said to Jack "You gotta wave your arms and yell "Right HERE!"" and he did. He waved his arms and yelled "I RIGHT HERE!" and they threw candy and he picked it up and said "I did it!" followed by a happy candy dance.
Then we saw Grandpa ride by on his motorcycle.
Later, I went to the butcher shop where I ran into the mayor and saw these two stray dogs hanging out waiting for people to drop a package of fine meat on the ground.
A very nice young lady grabbed them and called the dog catchers and then I wondered if I was stuck in a Tom & Jerry cartoon. Maybe I am the lady who's feet are featured in all the episodes... Nope, can't be, I still have a splint on my leg.
Later tonight, we'll go downtown and sit on a blanket and watch fireworks. Ella will soak it all in, Jack will cover his ears and hide his face in my lap. I'm sorta glad that explosions scare him. He's too much of a daredevil to love fireworks without giving me a heart attack.
