The Howell’s are hanging out at home today.  The smoker’s going.  Later there’ll be some really good brisket, the best potato salad in America, Mark’s special baked beans, and brownies with ice cream for dessert.  Good times.

This morning I had a little yard work to do.  Not much…but it wouldn’t be the 4th without some yardwork.  Here’s a look at the yard:

Happy July 4th!!!
