Happy 4th of July 2020

Mortgage and Lending with George Souto NMLS #65149 FHA, CHFA, VA Mortgages NMLS #65149


Happy 4th of July 2020 to all my ActiveRain friends.  Today will be a very different 4th of July than in years past, because of COVID-19.  Middletown, and many of the towns around us have canceled their fireworks display, and many families have also canceled their 4th of July get togethers. 

Normally our family would be having a 4th of July cook out at my nephews house in RI, but it has been canceled this year.  However, today is a gorgeous clear day, so my wife and I will grill a couple of steaks on the grill, and spend the day relaxing.

Hopefully all of you will have a happy 4th of July, and spend quality time with those who you are able to get together with.  But most of all I hope you stay safe way, and enjoy this day as well.  We want the 4th of July to be a day of celebration, and not a day of regrets.


Happy 4th Of July 2020!!!

It's different, but we can make it a wonderful celebration. We plan to play in the yard, and then have a great dinner. Happy Fourth of July to you, George Souto

George Souto - I just came from Endre's post and I know how much it means to you to be an American. I honestly can't think of one person I know whose family or ancestors did not made huge sacrifices to come to America legally and who really appreciate the freedom and liberty that wasn't available in their former countries. May God bless you and your family too.

Morning George.

I had an absolutely wonderful day yesterday.  We were able to get out of the house for an hour or so.  Weather was perfect.

Good morning, George.
It's unfortunate so many family and friend gatherings cannot take place this year but it doesn't take a crowd to be thankful and celebrate the birth of this great nation, does it? 

May God Bless you, your family, and America!

Good afternoon George Souto we has a social distance event.  It worked out well with enough room in the back yard and separate tables.

Hi George! We had a great time in Hilton Head Island for ½ week during the Fourth and loved celebrating with friends there. The island didn't have their normal 4th fireworks but, there were so many private fireworks displays, we enjoyed watching them for the evening.

Hopefully next year will be a much more celebrated Independence Day!

The 4th of July was definitely different this year, but I was still able to spend time with family!

Hi George... trust you had a nice Fourth. I'm a bit late with my greeting, as I pretty much abandoned Active Rain just before everything totally fell apart just before the holiday and only just came back to do some reading and commenting. Beyond that, no more posting for me here except for listings updates. Meantime, trust your summer has been going well and you're staying safe and well.
