"Nothing of Importance Happened Today"

The phrase is apocryphal rather than true, according to what I have researched.  However, it does pretty much sum up the attitude of  G.B. at the time!

 

 The Goony Birds have paraded and are enjoying their annual celebration!

We did a marathon watching of John Adams on HBO yesterday.   Watching the early episodes I realize once again how the whole idea of independence was pretty tenuous.  There is still something pretty wonderful that it all worked out.  Yes, we have problems, but as evidenced by SCOTUS decisions we are willing to reconsider and change.

HAPPY FOURTH OF JULY!

As always, thanks for stopping by........*s*

  3. Dearest Suzi,
    Hope you had a Happy 4th of July with a lot of meaning. Yes, history is teaching us a lot and we can be so grateful for many things compared with those humble beginnings of the USA.
    Sending you hugs and I LOVE your Goony Birds!

    1. Hi Mariette.....Independence Day in addition to be a day of celebration, is also a time to think about where we have come from, where we are going.

    1. Hi Anna.....We enjoyed the evening with old friends. Summer is definitely the best time to celebrate to celebrate a national holiday! Trying to grill in the snow just doesn't work!
