Happy 4th!

In honor of the 4th I've decided to re-post a shot of my currently missing (and missed)  Monster:

Absolutely adorable!

I thought something as cute as Ana's tootsies seemed more appropriate than other expressions of the a military parade for example. ;-)

It is also the 15th birthday of one of our visiting house guests and we will be celebrating that as well! 

Best wishes to all, and a hope that we all try to remember what we are supposed to be striving for as Americans and how we should honor the memory of this day with a reaffirmation of what our Founding Fathers were risking their lives for.......which was not blithely handing over more unchecked power to a single con man happy to scrap the Constitution while photo-op hugging a flag. 

History will never favorably view a complicit public condoning the undermining of a free, democratic republic, no matter how many flags were waved and fireworks launched.
