TIME: 9:24 PM
PLACE: East St. Louis Riverfront
SUBJECT: Fireworks over the Arch
MonkeyBoy left for Boy Scout Camp this afternoon. He will be there a week – his first time away from home for more than one night. I’m sure he will do O.K.
As we have done for the past several years, we drove down to the Mississippi River to watch the fireworks over the Arch. My sister, her husband and kids joined us this year.
