Family OTW will soon be leaving for our extended stay in America and as a result expectations are rising and plans are being laid. Vinogirl has informed me that we have been invited to a friends Independence day celebrations up in Napa. July the 4th is a bit of a problem for a confirmed Brit as myself...just what does one do? Do I sit in a darkened room raising a toast to George the 3rd and rue the loss of the colonies? Do I venture forth and in no way acknowledge that it even happened...after all.....king George may have given up but my family don't quit! Or do I introduce Princess OTW into the celebration of an event that launched the greatest nation on earth? I think the latter as I have a distinct feeling that one day the United States of America will be the Princess' adopted nation and I want her to understand just why she will be celebrating. Plus I have to admit,beer, burgers and it being Napa fine wine makes for a great day....anyway...Georgie boy was German after all.
