  1. Oh what fun ideas. Thank you for a lovely visit for the 4th. Since weather and family needs are keeping us close to home, I found a grand video of the Thunder Over Louisville Fireworks show. Now we can enjoy our fireworks at home in Elizabethtown, even if it’s raining and your delightful ideas might even get us going on some fun crafts. Thanks again.
