It's independence day! Time for barbecues & fireworks! In an effort to be patriotic today I have recited the preamble to The Constitution while on the phone with my mother, sang the National Anthem and said the pledge of allegiance. I wondered to myself how many American citizens could actually do the same? My mom recited the preamble right along with me and she has been out of school for over 40 years! I don't actually remember where or when I learned it, and to be honest I am surprised I still remember it. That is typical me though. I remember things that one does not need to use on a regular basis. I can't tell you how many cups are in a gallon or a quart, but if you need someone to recite the preamble or tell you how many states border Tennessee (8),I am your girl. I digress. I hope your 4th is wonderful, safe and fun! Here is a recent photograph I took of Old Glory herself, long may she wave!
Here are some pictures of where I am going on vacation tomorrow (you can click on the mosaic to see a larger version). We are going camping in the North Coast at Patrick' Point. It is amazing up there. I am looking forward to the natural beauty and relaxing with my family. Hopefully I will be super relaxed when I get back and have lots more photos to share!
Oh, and by the way, it's okay to miss me while I'm gone! (insert smiley face here)
