Our street is a rectangular loop—twenty-three houses around the outside and eight in the middle. Tonight is the neighborhood barbeque in the corner of the street in front of our house. It’s great to live in a community where this kind of thing happens. About a third of the neighborhood will show up. We bring our own meat to barbeque. Families on the outside of the loop bring salad, veggies, or fruit; those on the inside bring dessert. (It’s a good thing I don’t plan this because I would want to improve the ratio between salads and desserts.) Fireworks will begin at dark. The announcement says, “Please bring only legal fireworks.” I’ll be surprised if we don’t see some of the big stuff going up down the street.
