Mosaic Monday: Red, White and Blue



"You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness."
Erma Bombeck



To all my friends in the United States, happy Fourth of July! To all of my friends from around the world, thank you for taking the time to visit and celebrate with us. :)
