Hello....All of FunTown is saluting our great country today. The Fourth of July is my favorite holiday...in spite of the fact that it is not a gift giving occasion.
There are parades down our Main Streets with fashionable brass bands, pretty majorettes and lots of flags carried by Good Americans. I get goosebumps when I see children riding their red, white and blue festooned bicycles.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Betsy Ross...as I love the colors and design of our Star Spangled Flag.
And I love a snappy uniform. I always behave better around a tall soldier with brass buttons.
Our Statue of Liberty always looks her best on Doodle Dandy Day...she appears taller with all of those sparky fireworks dancing around her torch.
Yes, everyone is in a good mood on this festive day. How can you be grouchy when there are parades, earnest boy scouts, proud girl scouts, hot dogs, potato chips, watermelon, frosty pink lemonade and sparkly fireworks to top off this magical day.
So as you go about your summer day in your flip-flops and red, white and blue outfit. remember to smile as we are very lucky indeed.
Have silly "I'm a Yankee Doodle Dandy" fun, Jody
