July 4th – Independence Day

The United States will be 244 years old on July 4th.  🇺🇸

This is NOT a political post.  While I do have a STRONG opinion of what’s going on in our country right now – I don’t discuss my views.  If you don’t agree with me, I won’t convince you and you most certainly won’t convince me, so….

Though I don’t have a flag to fly outside, I do have the flag presented to me at Chuck’s funeral.  #2 Son gave me a lovely box to display it in and it sits atop the antique bookcase in my living room.

I AM proud to be an American.  The VFW has the guidelines for our flag.  I think I’ll try and acquire a flag and find out just how to fly it.  I’ll add getting it put up to my list for #1 son’s next visit.

Our neighbors hang their flag out every morning and take it down in the evenings…it’s nice to see it out that way.
PS…It’s funny you said that about the political views. I was just talking to Rob about all of the opinions you read especially on FB. Do people think they are going to change other’s mind with them? Which makes me wonder how we change our minds? Not that we all need to, but it’s good to be open to each other’s thoughts.


I agree wholeheartedly with your decision to be non political. We would all be a lot better off if we all could just talk to each other without the constant arguments over politics. The only statement anyone should make is, “I voted my conscience.” And that should be enough for everyone else. Have a lovely July 4.


I hope you are having a good week and Happy 4th of July, Iris! Blessings to you.
