Happy Fourth 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

Well in our little local parade in Mt. Angel, there is one tank.  But Erma’s sentiments are correct.  This is Bailey’s favorite holiday, and it is way up there for me too.  We will be having brunch at my sister Kris’s.  Watch the parade.  And who ever wants to come over for some grilled burgers and hot dogs, are welcome to.  Then, if I am up for it, LL, Max and I will head back to Mt. Angel to watch fireworks.  Have a great Independence Day!
