You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4th, 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 this is patriotism.
- Erma Bombeck
I don't decorate my home for July 4th, but I do fly my flag from May through mid-September in front of my house. I like to put a patriotic wreath on my front door. This is a recent purchase.
Here is a close up
Today happens to be my little bird, Pearl Angel's, third birthday. Happy Birthday, Pearlie. A sweet little bird.
Stay cool, and have a very happy and safe July 4th. I will be joining Seasonal Sundays at The Tablescaper and Sally for Blue Monday.
