Happy 4th of July


This fine lady was standing guard in front of a very old antique shop.  Though she seems a bit kitsch, she still stands mighty and proud.  

"You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4th, 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  

Enjoy the 4th and stay safe my friends!
