*Wave your Flags*

Fourth of July! 

I hope you all have a lovely fourth, with lots of fireworks, festivity, and remembrance of those who still give their lives to keep our country free. We're going to have a barbecue, and possibly dye some drinks red, white, and blue. Nothing like being patriotic AND festive, right?

God bless, and have a blessed, and wonderful, Fourth of July.

Red for hardiness and valour, duty done with greatest honour,
White  for clean, no stain to start:  pure and  innocent of heart.
Blue that to    justice    we'll adhere:     vigilant  to   persevere.
On  the field   are fifty stars, flanked  by thirteen   shining bars.
Fifty  stars  for  fifty states,  bound  by  what  the  flag  relates.
Flanking them, in red and white, thirteen stripes recall the fight.
Freedom    won,   declared today.  May God bless the U.S.A.!

You can follow the links for more info about the fourth, and the flag. Also, Liz Straw is having a giveaway over at her blog, as is Carrie Butler over at her blog. Please head on over and participate!


  1. Great post, Cat! Happy 4th to you, too!

  2. Happy Fourth to you, too, Cat! A barbecue sounds just right. Hope you had a blast.

    We went out on the water - the fireworks were set off from a barge- and watched the fireworks from there. It was grand!

    1. Ooh, there's cool, Ruth. I bet the fireworks looked ENORMOUS from the middle of the lake!

  3. I'm late, but hope every one had a happy 4th.

See my comment box? Want to know a secret?

*whispers* It's actually a TARDIS comment box! If you write long enough, you'll see... it's bigger on the inside!

Isn't that cool?

Now that you know that, aren't you going to throw a comment in there? You KNOW you want to. :)
