Japan - Autumn Leaves Geisha

Happy Independence Day!

This is one of my favourite holidays, and this year is no different. In fact, the older I get, the more I appreciate the meaning of this day. One of the reasons I'm really looking forward to the trip to Philly is to see the sights of American history I've never seen. It will be wonderful!

Stay safe, watch out for stray fireworks, and don't eat too much! I'm staying home, but I'll watch the Fourth of July concert on PBS and pretend I'm there. and I guarantee I'll cry more than once. And I'll probably sing 'Proud To Be an American' at least once out loud before the day ends, though probably after Nin's gone to work so my singing will only scare the cat! (We were testing sound equipment for the parade today at work yesterday, and I was humming the National Anthem till I fell asleep last night!) And maybe I'll walk over to the street and see if I can see the fireworks above the dunes tonight.

A bit later: I've had a few queries, and yes, the icon on this post is free to anyone who would like to use it :)
