To all Americans, wherever you may be, Happy Fourth of July. It’s time for barbecue, beer or wine coolers, fireworks, and friends.
The Fourth of July is also known as Independence Day, as in, we won our independence from Great Britain and became our own country with no one else to blame for our problems and only ourselves to congratulate for all the good stuff, like … the Model T Ford and reality TV and Pecan Pie and the Grand Canyon and … you know, good stuff like that.
In addition to eating, drinking, laughing and making loud noises to scare dogs into whimpering puddles, it’s a time to say thank you to the men and women who keep our country independent and safe. Thank you to those serving now, to those who have served since the beginning of the U.S., and to those who will serve in the future.
I hope you all have a fabulous Fourth of July. And if you don’t like fireworks, beer, wine, or meat and have no friends…go to the park and read a book. You’ll make a friend or two and may even pick up a runaway dog. Take a leash and doggie treats.
