Happy Fourth of July!

Lock up your dogs, water any dry weeds around the house, batten down the hatches if you live where fireworks will be banging overhead or firecrackers illegally tossed in the streets, slather on the sun screen, break out the BBQ, keep the kids safe, pick a designated driver if you're into a cold brew or two with that hot dog, or if lemonade is your drink of choice, drive carefully anyway, and have a wonderful 4th.

Or sit out in a corner of the back yard under a striped unbrella while your dogs lie about in the sun dreaming of bones and chasing the odd fly, while on a cement block retaining wall, a soft rustle and hustle reveals a little lizard coming out from under a vine leaf for a visit on a sunny July day.
