Happy Late 4th of July


Is it safe to come out from unner the bed? I hope so.  I hate the BOOM BOOM BOOMs

Also the mom messed up our July 4th post time so here it is now

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed

237 years later, the brave men who risked everything, many of whom died in poverty and gave up their lives for their country to sign the most important piece of paper in American History, are still my heroes.

Beautiful post, anyway.
So your mom had trouble scheduling your blog, too? Mine was 5 hours late. And that was because mommy caught it not showing up, and published it by herself.
Good, Mommy. Should have checked a little earlier??

Great post. We're not so sure it's safe to come out from UTB. It's legal for people to buy and shoot firecrackers in out neighborhoods so we'll probably hear them all weekend.
