Happy Fourth of July!!!

Happy Independence Day, USA!!!

Today, I am spending some time with some family and friends (houseguests)
and having an Open House after the parade
that goes right by my front door.

On July 2nd here, we had fireworks.
Our little community goes ALL OUT
for that....

I haven't processed my photos from them yet,
I am giving you some photos
from last year's fireworks.

I hope your day if full of friends, happiness
and rest.

I thank the Force for the freedom we have here in my homeland.

My ancestors fought for it.

My Dad was in three wars to protect it.

I honor, appreciate and cherish it.

How about YOU??

Happy Independence Day, everyone....
have a great weekend!!

Nice to admire them without
the noise.

Beautiful fireworks. I didn't leave the house at all today! Watched movies for hours, which was kind of fun. I was out yesterday at a lovely outdoor bridal shower which was so much fun.
