The Fourth of July at Stone Mountain

Nela and Hugh (my sister and brother-in-law) and Brian and Eric (their children) invited my mother and me to join them in their deluxe motor home to view the fireworks at Georgia's Stone Mountain Park, the largest piece of exposed granite in the world.  While it was hellish waiting for the festivities to begin (I'm not overly fond of huge crowds, especially when they are so rude ...), the fireworks were great, and we lounged in the lap of luxury in the motor home, watching TV and eating brownies while we waited with everyone else for TWO HOURS to leave the park.  A once in a lifetime experience.

Don't try this at home, kids
