Happy Birthday America!
I hope you all have enjoyed this July 4th weekend. That you got to a parade. If it’s still early, that you see some good fireworks tonight! We are lucky enough to have celebrated with friends. I often think about people who are not so lucky and try to share a holiday with them. It certainly makes our day better. I want to thank all the people who have fought and served to make this country great. And American is indeed great. I have been many places through out the world, and am always happy to come home.
I continue on my soapbox to recognize women who are Unsung Heroines of The American Revolution.
This Weeks New Blogs!
I stumbled upon the blog EveryWhereOnce and saw this photo of Santorini. Jim and I went on a cruise of the Greek Islands for our anniversary one year. Santorini was one of the places we were at. It brought back such memories. Greece is so beautiful. And romantic. There is a lot more on the blog
