Today was Independence Day, when Americans celebrate the birth of their country by going shopping. It was also bloody hot. With Vic's help, I jacked up the DRZ and took the wheels off so I can get new tyres spooned on when Jeff has the time. We cut up the old wooden boards that made up the (rotting) flower beds before it got too hot, then other than going for a cycle and running Tilly around the garden to tire her out, I didn't do much.
In the evening, I watched "Starship Troopers", as has a lot of noises to distract Tilly from the neighbours throwing fireworks at each other.
