Call me unpatriotic, but this is the holiday I like the least anymore. (Halloween being next on my least favorite holiday list.) I have to have windows closed even if weather is nice because of the noise, and because of all the sulfur in the air. Being asthmatic, it makes me wheeze. I did watch the Chicago fireworks on television, so I am not a total party-pooper. It was a fantastic show, as always and the livingroom sofa is the best seat. We went downtown only a couple of times for the fireworks display and there are just too many people. When it's all over with, people flood through Grant Park, down Michigan Avenue in droves, like scenes from a Godzilla movie. Then takes forever to drive home, so we just stay home now and watch it on tv.
