Happy Independence Day

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


  1. Wonderful! I love Erma Bombeck, my Mom collected many of her paper articles. Especially the ones on children. Happy 4th to you! We are at the beautiful beach eating hotdogs!

  2. I was hungry all day,and it happens each year. Didn't make it to a good parade, but relived many I had attended and been in.

  3. I agree with you...we had a wonderful time...the picture is beautiful


Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. I truly enjoy hearing from you!
