We were invited to a lovely party hosted by our dear friends, Maggie and Bill to celebrate the 4th of July. They have a home on a promontory, south of Ventura Blvd., just west of Cahuenga, overlooking Studio City. We could see the fireworks at Universal Studios, CBS-Radford Studio Center and at the numerous parks and homes across the Valley. The night sky was sparkling with fireworks. You'd think they were legal in Los Angeles! It really felt like the "rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air!"
We arrived in the late afternoon. Kids were swimming, friends were barbecuing. It was fun seeing old friends and making new ones.

Everyone brought a dish to share for dinner. Amazingly, there were no duplicates!
One of the highlights of the afternoon was seeing the neighborhood deer just below the yard, having their dinner at dusk. Maggie and Bill cleared the hill beneath their house and brought in hay for the deer. It's very cool to see these wild creatures just above busy Ventura Boulevard.
Thanks again, Maggie and Bill for including us in your 4th of July celebration!
