    Hope you and yours have a safe and happy Independence Day.

    • We did, Dan. Thank you. My son is home from Boston; the first time I’ve seen him in six months. And the second daughter is back from Wisconsin. We celebrated the Fourth with extended family in sw MN. So much fun to be with family.
