I've got a fun one for you today! A freebie and a reason to celebrate. The reason? There is none - which is the prefect reason to celebrate!
I hesitate to say this but, summer is starting to threaten to wind-down here in the northern hemisphere. The kids are back in school (or close to it) and events like "apple picking" and "turkey trot" have appeared on my calendar. Even more reason to have one last hurrah - a lingering, late night in the yard with friends or a mid-day treat with kids and splashing pools of water.
Heck, throw caution to the wind and put a label on a bottle of soad and another on a bag of peanuts - tie together with twine and pour the peanuts in the soda-pop for a Southern-style treat. Serve with great blues music, better barbecue and a game of horseshoes.
