Fourth of July With the Snells

Here at the Law Office of James R. Snell, we’re very thankful to be in the midst of a busy summer season.

Every client who walks through our door gets our full attention, and whenever we can help ease the stress of the legal process, we are reminded why we love what we do. I know Jim better than anyone, and I can tell you, he takes

great pride in providing assistance to the wonderful people of our community. Even with the move to our new office right around the corner, we haven’t taken our focus off what matters most: our clients. Even with a jam-packed calendar, Jim and I are still looking forward to a few moments of relaxation this summer. Fourth of July is always a fun holiday for us, and I’m sure this year will be no exception. When the sun goes down on Independence Day, you can be sure we’ll be at Lake Murray watching the fireworks. The display there is always spectacular, and it’s something we look forward to every year. Before the explosions start, eating some great food with the family is the main attraction. When it comes to our annual barbecue, the Snell family roles are pretty well set. Jim does the grilling, and I do the supervising. His beer-can chicken has become legendary in our family. But there’s a funny detail about that: Jim has been vegetarian for over two decades now. How he’s managed to perfect the recipe without tasting it, I’ll never know— but I can tell you, it’s delicious! Independence Day cookouts have been part of my life since I was a child, so they always bring back memories. Growing up, my dad would make 24-hour hash every Fourth. He would spend the entire day prior prepping ingredients and getting the hash just right. We used to joke that our family had a knack for arriving just as soon as it was ready to eat. It may have taken over a day to prepare, but it sure took a lot less to time eat.

“How he’s managed to perfect the recipe without tasting it, I’ll never know — but I can tell you it’s delicious!”

Another summer activity that I love is getting out on the lake for some fishing. At Lake Murray, we have striper and catfish in abundance. Occasionally, I’ll even reel in a bass. Jim will join me out on the boat sometimes, and I cherish the time we get to spend sitting out in the sun together.

I want to wish everyone a safe and happy Fourth of July weekend. Hopefully, by the time you’re reading the next edition of the

newsletter, we’ll be fully moved into our new office. In the meantime, enjoy the start of your summer, whether here in Lexington or wherever the season may take you.
