Sends out its radiance to nations near and far,
Emblem of Freedom! it set our hearts aglow,
With thoughts of San Jacenta and glorious Alamo. ♫♫♪

GOD BLESS AMERICA,
THE LAND THAT I LOVE......
I do feel so blessed to live in this great country.

CUTE GLASSES, and you look spectacular in them darling!The food looks wonderful, there will be no cooking here-our central unit went out and no repair man to be found on a holiday! We are just trying to survive with fans, so it will be a cold sandwich for us.

I know you had a terrific 4th with your family! We did, too, and in fact, I had so much fun, I'm still plum tuckered out!!! The sun during the long parade did me in this year...even with lots of water and a big old red, white and blue umbrella..I cooked! In fact, it's only 91 hear today, but it feels so much warmer. I had plans of "jogging" late this afternoon, but I'm thinkin' maybe not til the sun goes down...and maybe not even then! :)

I loved your previous post about board games, too, BJ. Yep, we grew up with them....and our kids played a lot. Our little grandgirtl likes Chutes and Ladders, among others. :) You're right, the electronic games are fun...but they're just not the same!

Have a great week...and stay cool.

L, Dana
