July 4th, a Retrospective...part II

After an afternoon of soaking up sun, sipping (guzzling), off a pitcher of watermelon tequila deliciousness, it was time to spark up the grill and begin the best part of any party, the food part. It was about 6:30, and with ample sun, Harriet, still homesick from her recent visit to her parents' home, grabbed the corn and began shuckin' like the good Jersey girl that she is. The plan for the corn was easy enough, remove almost all the husk, saving the fine last layer and then simply throwing it on the grill. Rotating it every so often, it's ready in about 10 minutes. We then strategically placed butter and salt on the hot corn and set it aside until the rest of the meal was ready, all just in time to watch the sunset and before the fireworks lit up the sky.
