4th of July



HAPPY BIRTHDAY DEAR AMERICA!




MAY OUR WONDERFUL FLAG FLY FOREVER!




MAY WE ALL RESPECT WHAT YOU STAND FOR.



MAY WE STAND UNITED UNDER GOD!




AND NEVER FORGET WHAT THOSE BEFORE US DID FOR US TO BE HERE TODAY!

THE LAUGH:

(From the grandson!)

THE LIFT:






Now I started a new Chatty Crone page on Facebook - 
CLICK HERE 
What my dream is - is to have a place we can kind of all meet - leave our joys, our funnies, our tears, our need of prayers, and out thoughts there.  So come on over and like it - and leave your 'footprint' there.  If you have a joke - or an inspiration - talk about the books you wrote - the paintings you draw - the photos you take - whatever - and we will become a community of hope.
Put some inspiration on for the 4th of July!

I hope you had a wonderful 4th, Sandie! That taco cat made me laugh right out loud (literally).

I would love to do the facebook, but the only FB I have is specifically linked to my SS class as the teacher, and I keep it exclusive for that.

I tried to do a words on wheels page but messed it up miserable.
I'm so stupid sometimes that I wonder if it's wise to let me near a keyboard.
