Happy birthday America

You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. ~Erma Bombeck

it up here.

The world stops for the weekend. A rare house without a flag displayed prominently (commies? Nah, people are just gone on vacation).

Nice to live with like-minded neighbors. These people take their country and its freedoms seriously. They read what it's like in LA, Chicago and Flint, Michigan, and don't want that life for their children.

We leave our doors open at night, cars unlocked, and children enjoy a real childhood with minimal risk.

Police are professional and friendly, but not afraid to break heads when it's warranted. Police brutality simply isn't in the local vocabulary.

It IS a little boring, though . . . . a lot more challenge and adventure in Nicaragua.


Didn't realize you moved to Canada! LOL

Have a Happy 4th of July!!!
