Independence Day...


That sounds good, on so many levels!

I still am pondering the emotions I felt this past Memorial Day, to think of the battles one fights to gain independence, all wars whether they are in ones mind or on the battlefield of life...including the heartwarming effect of hearing from someone who has the MIA bracelet with my uncles name on it and is passing it on to me...

THE MIA BRACELET STORY



And then, to relive each year, the joys of Sparklers, hot dogs, potato salad and S'Mores...that is what I am looking forward to on this 4th, spending time with friends, kids around to spark the fun...



And I have plans to get to my basement, really! I started, and have the bathroom put back together...

  6. Your basement is a treat compared to our garage. Even our "path" has now closed.
