Morgan’s group leads charge for new marine sanctuary

A month of parties

Welcome to July, my natal month. Always the best month for parties. As a child, I celebrated my birthday with picnics, circuses and much summer silliness. Away from school, we could bike to the Carnegie Library, anticipating ice cream and cake as we hurried home, our bicycle baskets filled with books.

Parties were celebrated aboard ferries en route to beaches, where the July winds of Eureka, California almost always guaranteed a fine day to fly kites. A beach birthday might end with roasted marshmallows turned into smores, a delightfully gooey alternative to cake.

However and whatever you celebrate this month, I hope you have a happy July, beginning today and including the festivities of the Fourth.

The Fourth of July is also the anniversary of my friend and former colleague Lou Morton and his sweetheart, Carol. Their wedded life began with the bang of firecrackers and remains strong, a true blue American union. We wish them happiness on this, their 31st anniversary, with many more to follow.
