      Non-Official Official Fourth of July (3rd of July for our Canadian Friends) Thread!

      Ok so I know I havent been around long but I am taking the step anyway of launching the non-official official thread for the fourth. Anyone doing anything exciting?

      I just got a company wide email stating that we will be closed the third as well and now i am pumped!

      I have to work the 3rd....so Bender...since you are off....how about you come over and buy a car? I am off the 4th.....plans as of now.....NOTHING AT ALL! I'm sure the wife will come up with something exciting
      You guys could ALL help me break the store record for most cars sold in 1 day by 1 person......It will only take 7 of you! Any volunteers?


      Happy 4th to everyone!Cheers

      well if you are more into the EMS stuff it makes sense that you focus on that.

      I am "working from home" on the 3rd.

      On the morning of the 4th, my wife and I are running a 5K together. It will be my first. Then we are going to BBQ with some friends/neighbors then watch the local fireworks and light off our own. I think I still have some South Carolina mortar shells from last year.

      Nope, we are going to watch some good ole country fireworks. I live in a historic town about 40 miles west of DC (as the crow flies).

      Before I got married, I spent every Fourth that I was in town for down in DC. I played in the Volleyball on the Mall tourney every year and then got stupid drunk and watched the fireworks from a friend's boat parked in the Potomac by Washington Harbor close to Georgetown. Ah, the memories
