Proud to be an American!

I know there must be other countries that are wonderful, however, I would not want to live any where else but in America, especially Oklahoma.....well maybe some place some what cooler than Oklahoma during these nasty hot summers, but still in America :o)

If we could just move the Caribbean to Grand Lake life would be absolutely perfect! I love the cool clear water of the Caribbean. My dad always told us about catfish as big as large cows feeding in Grand. I really am not fond of the UNclear water in Grand lake. However, it is a wonderful place for us to go boating and the guys to fish. Yes, I still think of all the stuff my dad used to tell us kids when we go to the lake. (and yes I am scared of fish)

Hope everyone is having/had a Happy and safe 4th.

I got to play in my garden for a couple of hours this afternoon. I sweat about 3 full buckets. yuck. But it did make me feel LOTS better and the garden look more complete.

My daughter cooked out, burgers and wienies. I bought macaroni salad for her and potato salad for me. The burgers rawked as Lu is a wonderful griller. The potato salad was so very bland it had NO taste. Lu said the mac salad was great. Good thing I had a bag of Lays classic chips to come to the rescue!

Then we sat in our cool den, ate yummy burgers and watched Macy's fireworks and then the Boston fireworks on the telly. Best way to do fireworks as far as I am concerned. I just kept thinking of all the American kids that could go to bed with full tummies for the next three months with the money that was blown up tonight in those two places alone :o(

The Tulsa fireworks show was paid for by contributions not City money but I think the homeless shelters would have benefited so much more from the five thousand that was supposed to have been burned. I know not what the holiday is all about....just think about it.

Pictures of my garden tomorrow.

Later gators!

Sounds like you had a wonderful time. I agree with you. The money wasted on fireworks, blow up xmas decorations on lawns and scarry blow up pumpkins... I would be rich now and feel all of africa!! I'm going to check out more of your blog. I hope you'll stop by mine to say hello.
