Thank a Bunch

Happy 4th of July!

Today is a day of celebration – It’s our Independence Day.  I know I take for granted far too often the freedoms I enjoy because of other’s sacrifices to ensure I can do what I want, when I want.  So this card is a huge THANK YOU to those that fought for our freedoms!!!

This evening we plan to go to the State Capitol Grounds for the annual fireworks display, the Symphony plays for an hour or so prior to the fireworks and then during the entire display.  There is nothing like listening to John Phillips Sosa as the artillery explodes overhead.

I know it is a bit of a stretch but…. if you squint the flowers look like exploding fireworks!
