Happy 4th

One more 4th of July has arrived. A time of parades, fireworks, going to the lake, getting drunk, jumping in the pool. barbeques, and in general a free day off from work for millions especially government agencies. This year because it comes on a tuesday many took off from friday thru today.
Hopefully a few will take a moment to reflect on the reason for the day. Many blog posts will and have been written about it. One that caused me to think is http://www.neptunuslex.com/ .
I tend to get a little morose about the whole thing because too many people are working overtime to destroy what little freedoms we have left under that docoment and the Constitution which was written 11 years later.
People often seem too interested in the vague pursuit of happiness rather than protecting LIFE & LIBERTY.
Just my opinion, but it's one of the reasons for the tangles of doubt, depression and worry in my life.

On the upside, I'll be traveling down to Loganville to swim in the pool, see the spousal unit who is house sitting said pool, visit with the grandchildren and some of the children and their spousal units.
Have a great 4th of July, and take a moment to reflect on some of the reasons our forefathers pledged Their Lives, Their Fortunes and Their Sacred HONOR to fight to leave us the freedom we so cherish.

The okra needs picking, and beans too. They'll just have to wait.

Happy Fourth to you, sir.

Did you watch the parade in Loganville? You are just a hop, skip, and a jump away from Kat in GA. She helped organize that "first EVER" parade in town.

I hope you had a good one and spent it with that new grandbaby of yours!

No I didn't watch the parade. Missed it by inches. Actually only a few minutes. Time better spent around and in the pool, and indeed playing with the new grandbaby. Did have time later in the day to watch an hour of The Twilight Zone. They had a day long marathon. Such a nerd.
Made it up by watching The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Terrible movies but I've been a fan of Clint's since he played Rowdy Yates on the Rawhide series. Damn that dates me doesn't it.
