4th Of July 2011

Hey!  Down in front!! Our fourth of July weekend was just right:  a parade, fireworks, a day at the pool, great food on the BBQ.  I sometimes get caught up in trying to make an “event” out of the holidays, but when it comes to the 4th, I’ve realized that the traditions have sort of…

Fire and Ice

On this Independence Day….

Happy Fourth!

Don’t ask me how, but I’ve known the lyrics to Lee Greenwood’s class “God Bless The USA” for as long as I remember. I couldn’t think of a better day than the 4th of July to share it with all of you. Thanks to YouTube, I was able to pull up American Idol, Season 2’s…
