July 4th Weekend

 I shall kick off the last day of June with a start to the July 4th weekend. My co-workers and I managed to talk our boss into giving us Monday off too, so July 1 thru 4 shall be grand.  Do I have plans?  Well, catching up with various friends for brunch on Saturday and Sunday. Possibly go to a movie on Monday. In between, enjoy lazy pool time and finish up on Tuesday with fireworks. Ray and I just have to drag our chairs to the front sidewalk and watch Bedford light up the sky.
Here's my patriotic tablescape. Tough to beat the red, white, and blue for pizzazz.  I included my British cup that says Keep Calm and Carry On. What the heck, this American experiment is still working out some kinks since 1776.

Patriotism...applies to true love of one's country and a code of conduct that echoes such love -
Howard Fast 1991

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots - Barbara Ehrenreich  1988

Have a safe and Happy 4th of July........loooonnnnnnng weeekend

  10. I hope you've been enjoying this looooong weekend, and you get a little bit of sun so you can loll around in the pool. Our area has turned into the tropics, meaning we have a thunderstorm every day. (The weeds are as high as an elephant's eye.)
