The celebration really begins on the 3rd with the San Angelo symphony pops concert. This is by far my favorite event. In fact I love it so much that I have joined the rest of the "crazies" in San Angelo and annually participate in the "running of the tarps" (see above blog for an in depth discussion of this event). The pops concert includes these exciting events: the posting of the colors by goodfellow afb, a b-1 fly bye from Abilene.... numerous cannons blasts from the cannons at fort concho (brought over for the event) and of course patriotic music and fireworks.

So here is a great group picture ( minus me and D-dad) of us at the pops concert. On the 4th of July me maw invited all the family in town over for hamburgers, swimming for the kids in the back yard and of course homemade ice cream. We had a wonderful time. After supper we all headed over to the San Angelo colts stadium to see the fireworks.
Happy 4th of July!
