I hope you had a fantastic fourth on Monday, even if you don’t live in the U.S. My family and I spent a good deal of ours in the car, passing between Tennessee and Alabama. It was kind of amazing driving home and seeing multiple fireworks shows going off on either side of the road, like being in a Mario Kart trophy ceremony. We went out to visit a friend who was recently married, did some congratulating, a little swimming, and held some puppies. All in all a pretty good day.

Here’s a celebratory video:
