Stars and Stripes flying on boat moored at Sausalito 31 May 2004

Stars and Stripes blowing in the breeze in Sausalito on a California blue sky day.

Happy, Happy Fourth of July!
The lads and I do so wish we could enjoy the fireworks with you, though I hear there are none at Stanford University this year. So will you be heading down to Shoreline Blvd or up to Foster City?

  1. We’ll be skipping fireworks and attending two parties (Berkeley and Palo Alto) with lots of food.

    It’s a good tradeoff!

  2. Hi Breen,

    Nice to hear from you! Berkeley and PA sound good. As for me, I have just come back from Eton Wine Bar, where we had a parents’ dinner with school friends. Twenty years ago, I sat on the same bar stool, and had a job interview there … funny how times change 😉

  3. Hopefully Foster City!! I’ll take lots of pictures for you to make up for your absence… 😉

  4. Dear Bethan,

    Thank you so-o-o-o much! Please say “Hi!” to all who know us. You can tell them that we have a California blue sky day here in Windsor today—gorgeous! Also, if I walk through Grosvenor Square later today, I’ll try to get a good picture of the American Eagle and the Stars and Stripes flying over the US Embassy on Independence Day.

    P.S. Blue sky didn’t last long, so looks like a brolly day 😉

  5. Yes, today we Brits will celebrate our liberation from the obligations and burden of managing the US economy and population over 200 years ago. As a sweetener, the newly created USA also took Texas off our hands a century later !
