HAPPY 4th!

This has always been one of my favorite holidays. Not only are we celebrating the birth of the greatest nation the world has ever seen, but we do it on a warm summer day with fireworks and strawberry shortcake.

Does it get any better?

Only if there are horses....

Ride'em if you got'em.

And, for your viewing pleasure, this video has always been a favorite of mine as well. I watch it every year.

It's too late...


Actually, I almost wish it was. 

HAPPY 4th!! Don't burn the place down.



  1. There were three little bitty horses in the parade today. I don't know if they could manage a flag that size, much less a rider.

    1. Probably minis. Can't do much more than pull a pony cart. Like toy dogs, just a novelty. But I adore them.

      Happy 4th, RG. Take care.

  2. I love this video. I show it to my fifth grade students when we study American history.

  3. Debbi, there is another one that is good, but my favorite is the one which features scenes from the TV miniseries "John Adams".

    This is the other one, which you've probably also seen.
