I always wish I was back in Gloucester during the days surrounding the 4th. The 3rd was always the funnest day of the year when I was a kid. Serious cookouts at the Telles house, Billy GooGa stopping by in a costume to drink from moms beer, throwing snaps at walkers ankles, and many more fun memories. The 4th is moms birthday, she's 55 this year! Generally we took this day easy, but the best year for sure was when she turned 50 and Kelly Lawsaleone did the "I'm Fifty" dance while Chris set off fireworks at the playground. That will go down in history for sure! Either way...happy birthday mom!
Keep an eye out for your gift, its pretty rad.
