Our flag proudly flies

 holding men and women in

its bold stars and stripes

 Colors in the sky

Together, we “ooh” and “ahhh”

Independence Day

    Hi Lauren–First, Happy Fourth of July! Second–I’m so sorry that in all the recent blog issues, I “lost” you again–good grief. Have remedied that once more–and will catch up! Much love, Caddo

    1. Hi Caddo, thank you and I’m really glad to see you around here again. I just emailed you, which will explain more…and when you say you’ll catch up, you’re not kidding! You’ve been very busy! 🙂 I enjoyed seeing your smile so many times today! Love and hugs, L

    1. Awww…thank you, Binky, and yes, they are! I’m sure you’re having a big barbecue at your beach house with a special surprise of red, white and blue pancakes! Am I right? 🙂

  2. Hope you had a marvelous holiday, my dear! We had a lazy and unproductive, and therefore *fantastic* day, only leaving home for an afternoon walk and early light supper. That’s my idea of personal freedom! 😉

    1. We did, but it was different this year…our daughter (20) went to the fair with her boyfriend, our son (17) went to some friend’s, whose family wasn’t doing anything either. And my hubby and I played tourist in Sausalito (you know where I’m talking about, I think, just north of S.F.), had lunch, walked around and shopped a bit. It was quiet, but nice and later we grilled! Your sounds wonderful, too! 🙂

  3. Hope you had a wonderful 4th of July! Beautiful photographs to go along with your double Haiku! I’m trying to dedicate some time right now to visit other blogs. I’m glad I stopped by yours!

    1. My hubby and I played tourist in a local town, lunch out, shopping, while our daughter and her bf were at the fair and our son was hanging out with other friends! A little different, but it was a good day! Love and hugs to you, too, and I hope yours was fun, also! xo

    1. So sorry to hear that, Russell! It’s been a couple of years since we’ve camped and we miss it, too! My hubby and son (17) are going on a 50 miler in August, though, so that will appease them! 🙂

I appreciate your thoughts!
