Wow! Thanks so much for inviting us to your neighborhood’s annual 4th of July celebration. You guys certainly know how to throw a party, and we felt very lucky to be included. The ribs and hot links you cooked up were absolutely amazing. One day I’ll need to pin you down and get that fabulous BBQ sauce recipe. And we really enjoyed the lengthy fireworks display. What luck to have a fireman as a neighbor; it’s so great that he volunteers to light them up year after year. I’m not bashful about saying that I hope you’ll invite us again next year! Your parties are always exciting and so much fun.
