~ Welcome July ~
In early July, our thoughts in America turn to that most patriotic of American holidays ~ Independence Day (aka: The Fourth of July).
As we wait for the fireworks to begin, I've been enjoying this little book. The authors took on the challenge of listing 1001 things they love about America.
Their ideas ranged from somewhat obvious to ...
(is there a baby boomer around who doesn't remember good old HoJo?)
This one cracked me up.
Do any of you remember watching Oprah a few years ago when she and her best friend, Gayle, took a road trip across the country??
I do believe they made a stop at these Wigwam Motels and it was quite funny as I recall.
Do any of you have personal stories about the Wigwam Motels? If so, I'd love to hear them.
I thought of Karen when I saw this one :).
There were also many reminders of some of the things that truly make this a great country to live in and may we always remember them.
So, as we make our preparations to celebrate the 4th of July . . .
As we plan our picnics, parties and celebrations . . .
As we plan our menus and prepare our food . . .
When we pick our vegetables from the garden or visit our local farmer's market . . .
Let us always remember that ...
Wishing my Canadian readers a Happy Canada Day today, my American readers a Happy 4th of July weekend, and all of my readers from other countries a happy weekend. (If you have an upcoming holiday that I'm not familiar with, please take this chance to inform me of it).
