Happy 4th of July 2013

Old Glory ~ Long May She Wave.

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
Happy 4th of July!


  1. Super creativity with your RED,WHITE, & BLUE photos. ... well done
    I LOVED Erma ...bless her soul.
    Happy 4th of July
    ...the corn around the corner is as high as an elphants eye ~ so crops right on schedule it seems

  2. Happy day to you! Love the patriotic themed photos. :)

  4. Happy July 4th Melody. I am sitting in bed reading blogs and listening to the loud booming fireworks outside going off all around us. I love it! Very creative post with the red, white, and blues.

  6. Hope you enjoyed your 4th July and yes you were very creative with your photographs. Just been catching up and so many things you have been posting since I was here. Ice cream portions, I hope you sent it back. My huge bowl of English strawberries and ice cream is what you should have ordered. It looks like you are having a good summer, everyone looks well and keeping you busy. Enjoyed seeing the art wall.
    Beatrix Potter land is there amongst the hills, will be very busy now with visitors. Liked your little fairy garden,
    Enjoy your weekend, have fun.

  7. Great collection of photos to celebrate the season and holiday
