Patriotic packing 

The Egg is moving from Manhattan to Chicago at the end of July, and today, even my supplies are feeling the occasion!

Out!

I love Wimbledon. I look forward to it every year. I consider it a legitimate response to the question,

“What are you doing July 4th weekend?”

But this?

No.

Stars and stripes

I spend most Fourth of July holidays occupied by a very British tradition —

The Championships, Wimbledon

In recent years there haven’t been any American tennis players, male or female, in contention for the major titles.  This year’s champions are Serbian Novak Djokovic — yay! — and Czech Petra Kvitova.

But things may be changing in a few years.

The boys Wimbledon final was an all-American affair between qualifier Noah Rubin and six-seeded Stefan Kozlov.  Rubin won in three sets and the two players, who are friends off-court, posed for this patriotic shot with their trophies:

Finally — some American fireworks in jolly ol’ England!

Fruits of the 4th

I found a Fourth of July dessert that I surprisingly haven’t made. And it’s so simple.

Strawberries.
Bananas.
Blueberries.
Skewers.

Beautiful and easy.

I really hope someone makes it for me.

That’s no thunderstorm…

Do you see what I see??

Happy Fourth of July!

I have tennis on the brain this week. Or as Geoff Peterson would say —

Balls

tennis ballsI’ve been watching the French Open as much as humanly possibly on this side of the drink.

I bought my tickets to the US Open yesterday — one of the best things about living in New York City — through the American Express advance purchase sale.

(Because membership has its privileges….)

And I am already looking forward to watching Wimbledon over the Fourth of July holidays right here at home.

I hear rumors on Facebook and Twitter that the NBA playoffs are going on somewhere, but seriously — how can people even think about ‘pro’ basketball — when there is so much tennis going on??

Red, white and huh?

Nothings says ‘Happy Fourth of July’ like a skull and crossbones.

Whacky holidays!
