Good: the truck has exceptionally nice climate control, way better than the Kia.
Bad: the truck uses more gas.
Ugly: we were driving the truck because one of the Kia’s back windows was broken by a vandal the day before. (OTOH, nothing was stolen.)
Good: got to dip my toes in three different lovely cool rivers: Cowlitz, Skookumchuck, Nisqually.
Bad: there really wasn’t a good spot to lay out and read/write.
Ugly: the place we really wanted to go was crazy-packed, so we just drove right on past and bounced from spot to spot all day.
Good: beautiful sunny weather.
Bad: 90+ degrees.
Ugly: I get cranky in hot weather.
Good: pretty fireworks in the neighborhood.
Bad: loud fireworks in the neighborhood.
Ugly: loud fireworks in the neighborhood when I had a headache and the weather was hot.
In general, I stand by my opinion that the 4th of July is my least favorite holiday, especially when it falls in the middle of the week.
