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.

Thanks to Vicki's Blog for the above quote. Erma Bombeck and I shared the same birthday, February 21st. She died April 22, 1996 and gave us both humor and knowledge.
