4th of July

You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.

-Erma Bombeck

I'm busy skewering chicken, prepping home made ice cream and slicing strawberries, just getting prepared to be very patriotic today.

Happy 4th to you and yours!
