As I wander through the slow flying days thinking they’ve added an extra Thursday to the week,  somehow I’m a little surprised that the July 4th holiday has arrived.  My timing is definitely off since I actually tried to go out a few weeks ago to buy a few summer outdoor items to only discover that…
