fourth, highlights


todays the fourth of july
i know its all about picnicing and fireworks (not here
this year as all the fireworks are cancelled because of the
severe drought)

but today is the day the declaration of independence was
approved by congress on july 4, 1776

most of us havent read it and know most politicians
either havent read it or they definitely dont remember
its contents
maybe we should all take the time and read it again

be safe today
enjoy the day
remember why we have this holiday

the highlights of our recent wedding week were

of course just being in santa barbara think-divide our temps
here in texas by 50% and those are the temps
sure would feel good today

seeing the dreier museum and holding babe ruths bat
and of course all of the other stuff we saw there

meeting and getting to stay with a couple whos a friend of my
daugtherinlaws family she and getting to know them and
spending time with them    
thanks again to jm and d

i got to meet one of my blogging buddies
she is lk who writes the lks grab bag blog which is one of my
favorite blogs i follow
she wrote an article in february about my blog and my dealing
with my diagnosis

her daughter was the maid of honor for my daughterinlaw she
we read each others blog but have not ever met

the rehearsal dinner set up at my wet suitcase sisterinlaws house

memorable wedding day

  1. Interesting to note that although the Declaration of Independence was approved... most historians agree that is was signed on August 2. Not that it matters but it makes for good trivia.
