4th of July equals a new hamster!!
Every 4th of July brings back memories from when I was a little girl. Since my birthday is January 4th, which is really a rotten time to have a birthday, I used to always make a big deal about the 4th of July being my half birthday. Somehow I managed on many 4th of July's to con my dad into a trip to the pet store for another hamster. For some reason he indulged me, against my mother's wishes. We would drive off and I remember the excitement. Looking back I know where my love for animals came from...I truly believe that he enjoyed those little hamsters almost as much as I did! If he were still here today I would load him up in the car we'd set off with my kids to get a hamster!
