Happy Fourth of July******
This is the long weekend we Americans look forward to. Our television station taped the Big Gig Fireworks in HDTV. I quickly ran downstairs and taped it and I am watching it as I type!!! I really love Milwaukee and the skyline at night is fantastic. We have a new Discovery world that is being built, we have the Calatrava which is my favorite building. For the fireworks they lighted the highrise (Hoen) bridge underneath and the Northwestern Mutual building offices are all lit. That is where my son works. Another building a really tall bank blacked out specific windows to make a lighted guitar, in honor of Summerfest. We also have the Dennis Sullivan, which is a handbuilt tall ship, that graces our lakefront for the summer season and then winters in Florida. The public is allowed to tour the ship daily. We have a manmade island that is a State park with 20 boat slips to dock and overnight or picnic. If you are ever traveling come and visit our wonderful city and if you live here take advantage of what we have. We tend to become complacent with what we have. If you love Festivals, we have every Ethnic festival you can think of and Summerfest is the largest music festival in the Country. We have concerts in the parks during the week and a wonderful zoo. This is also a weekend to celebrate our Freedom, be sure and Thank a Veteran for the good job they have done!!!! Have a safe and happy weekend!
