Just wanted to let you know that I'm heading to the beach today with my family to celebrate the Fourth! Then, Team Elliott will be staying there for another week for vacation so I'll be returning to blogging on Tuesday, July 14.
I will have internet access so I hope to catch up on all of my blog reading and see what you've all been up to... I may be able to post a few times but I'm not sure that I have that capability yet so we'll see...
I hope to finish my May BJP which I've started. It's kind of fun to work on it right now because, even though it was inspired by the Liberty to Liberty Triathlon in May, the theme works pretty perfectly right now. I'm feeling very patriotic these days.
Oh, and did you hear?
The crown of the Statue of Liberty is re-opening this Saturday to small, specially-ticketed groups guided by a park ranger. It's been closed since Sept. 11, 2001 and, according to Interior Secretary Ken Salaza, reopening the crown "would proclaim to the world — both figuratively and literally — that the path to the light of liberty is open to all." I'm just glad to see her open again.
Happy Fourth of July to my U.S. friends and Happy Weekend to everyone else in the world. See you in a little over a week, if not before.
