Happy Independence Day!

Freedom's natal day is here.
Fire the guns and shout for freedom,
See the flag above unfurled!
Hail the stars and stripes forever,
Dearest flag in all the world.
~Florence A. Jones
Thought I would give you some creative images of Old Glory today.  This one is painted on a sliding barn door.

License plates.

 Baseball Bats from the all-american game.

 Rocks on the beach at Cyprus.

 An old time bunting.

Handmade installation.

 Made by 1st graders.

 Safety pins and beads.

Converse sneakers in NY.

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.  You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.  ~Erma Bombeck
