I am privileged to have quite a few friends who live in Canada and am happy to support their celebration.
The 4th of July, celebrates the signing of the US Declaration of Independence which begins: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of happiness.”  When will we live up to these stirring words?

    • Hey, Vicki. Oh, my goodness. I want to come to your house. I love cornhole! Don’t get lots of takers from members of my family. LOL We’ll probably have hot dogs. It’s about the only time I eat hot dogs and I love them with lots of mustard, pickles, & onions. Y’all have a great time. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂
