July 4th in Vale, Oregon

Our little town has always done a lot of things for the 4th of July. This year has been no different. They have the Rodeo every year of course, it's held in the evening when it's cooler. We had a run at the crack of dawn along with the Lion's Club breakfast, later at 1 PM we had the parade and Oregon Trail Days in the City Park.
You can keep quite busy if you try to do all the activities available. This year we have kept our activities pretty low key, we watched the parade from our carport and that was it. The weather this year has been very good, temps in the low 90's during the day and cooling off to the high 50's/low 60's. A little thunder last night but no rain and little wind.

Dear Father Dan: Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my blog about the urgent need for health care reform in our beloved country. Until we view access to health care as a basic human right, we'll not be on the right side of history or morality. Take the ability to reap obscene profits out of the equation, and justice will roll down like a mighty stream.

The weather in Vale sounds delightful in comparison to the oppressive heat, humidity and drought we have in south Louisiana this time of year.

And congratulations on your Fiftieth Anniversary. Quite a reason for a full year of jubilee, I'd say!
