Let freedom never perish in your hands. ~Joseph Addison

Look at this!!

Not your typical 4th of July greeting card, but I'm sure it got some attention back in the day, lol..... I thought it was cute~ I wonder if one of those "Don't try this at home" kind of warnings came with it.... ;+)

Anyway, here comes the 4th of July in America again. I'm a big fan of fireworks and music and picnics, but this year my heart goes out to those who have lost so much in the fires around Texas and New Mexico and elsewhere. I'm kinda hoping that we can set aside our pyrotechnics for after a few rainy days and maybe find other ways to celebrate our patriotic gratitude and enthusiasm. That's probably expecting too much, and I do know of a few people who have their hoses and buckets handy, lol.

Fireworks or not, a lot of barbecue, fried chicken, apple pies, potato salads and watermelons will be enjoyed by those who are really glad about being lucky enough to do so in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

Happy Birthday, America!!!
