Stars And Stripes Forever, Babeee!

Okay, I took a little liberty, ha!, no pun intended, with the title of that great work but it's one of my favorites! I hope all of my fellow Americans are enjoying and celebrating this wonderful holiday and remembering what it's all about. I have mostly worked on the house here by myself but did go have a nice lunch with Fred and Allen and another friend and then Allen and I rode around and visited a couple of other friends for a little while. So, I have taken a little time just to relax. I'm going to watch the Boston Pops special later; I always enjoy their performances.
I would recommend two other posts by fellow bloggers on this day. Jim over at Coffee With The Hermit has a good one and the annual 4th post that Ed at Riverbend Journal puts up is great. It brings me to tears every time I read it. And last but not least, Beatrice and Grenville at Frog and Penguin have loads of great pics of 4th festivities up their way. Check them out!

So, God Bless America, land that I love!!!
Oh, and you gotta check out Google's header for today; it's cool!

Happy Fourth of July. The Boston Pops would be nice. I haven't heard them since I left living in Boston.

Hey Philip! thanks! I would LOVE to see the orchestra in person; that would be so great.

Deleted the previous post by mistake, so here it is again in its entireity :-)

Happy 4th you you too, Annie - a little late with the holiday wishes. Glad you took time off to relax and enjoy time (and dinner) with friends. Grenville had his high school firend visiting the entire holiday weekend. He rode his cycle here from Blacksburg, VA. We shared lots of local events with him, including the non-motorzed July 4th parade in the county seat. Feel free to check out the photos on our blog post.

We spent the day down on the farm, talking, eating way too much, and then seeing the fireworks show along the river in the small town in the center of my blog header. Classic fourth of July. Thanks for the plug. I would suggest people search for videos of it on youtube. There are several really good ones there with the original audio that always brings me to tears.
