It must be hard to go back to work after a long holiday, although it is good to have a job to get back to. Of course I wouldn’t know. Being retired everyday is a holiday.

I celebrated the 4th of July at my cousin’s. Unfortunately the planned BBQ got rained out, it was too hot to cook inside so we had some traditional 4th of July Chinese take-out. General Tso chicken is almost as good as BBQ, almost. Had a great time.

Hope everyone had glorious 4th celebrating our nations birth.

It has been an incredible, beautiful, day. What a great start to a holiday weekend celebrating the birth of our country.

I will be at my cousin’s BBQ, I love the taste of burnt meat.

Speaking of burnt/fired food we don’t have to look at the wording on the sign to know what country this county fair is being held, and I want one of everything.

Everyone have a great weekend. I’ll leave you with some good old American country music.

Sugarland – These Are The Days

I will be celebrating the 4th of July with my cousin, her son and some friends.

Everyone have a great holiday weekend, including my friends from outside our shores.

I am re-posting two patriotic songs from last year:

America The Beautiful – Ray Charles

Our Country – The Boston Pops & John Mellencamp
