Happy Fourth!

Marge (that's Meg, sometimes) and I started the day with a nail-painting party.  This design is actually pretty simple and fun to do.  Her's was much more complicated.

It has nothing to do with July 4, and everything to do with the fun swirls her hair made on the floor.  Isn't she a cutie?

There are no photos to prove it, but a few of us went to the pool today.  In the rain.  For some reason, there was no neighborhood pool party for Independence Day, this year, but DH didn't want the day to pass without a "ritual dip".  We were aiming for 'between showers,' but it didn't work out that way, and there was a gentle shower occurring during part of our time there.  We had the pool to ourselves (surprise, surprise!), and had fun playing catch in the water!


A local Boy Scout troop has a new fundraiser where they sell a subscription flag service:  They'll bury a pvc pipe in your yard, and, on 5 national holidays, they come around to post a flag on a 5' flagpole.   The one cul-de-sac where the Boy Scout lives looks great because everyone bought a subscription! Unfortunately, he didn't make it all the way around the neighborhood, but it's a nice effect.   I'd love to see the whole neighborhood looking much more patriotic;  flags are pretty sparse around here on holidays.  It makes me think that's why we're losing our freedoms little by little, because people don't really appreciate their country.

Have a happy day celebrating our country!  Stop by LMLD to see what everyone else is doing.  Hugs!
