July 4th 2011

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

This, then, is the state of the union: free and restless, growing and full of hope. So it was in the beginning. So it shall always be, while God is willing, and we are strong enough to keep the faith. ~Lyndon B. Johnson

There is nothing wrong with America that cannot be cured by what is right with America. ~William J. Clinton

Love those quotes. Great for the time.

We in Canada celebrate on July 1st. This year, we had Prince William and Lady Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cornwall. The Royal newlyweds are on their first official international tour. (I've got some pics on my blog.)

We watched them on tv, along with our grandchildren who were spending a couple of days with us. We had a good time.

I miss Erma Bombeck - her humour was universal.
