Independence Day

Our 4th of July weekend was the best in recent memory. Hubby was home, girls, dogs, babies & friends joined us at the lake. The weather was uncommonly comfortable for July in NC...temps in upper 80's, low humidity, no rain...the best!
July 4th is a good holiday. The annual boat parade on our lake was delightful. Boats decorated with flags and streamer were loaded with families decked out in patriotic bathing suits and other festive attire, such fun. A celebration of our independence...red, white & blue..land that I love...let freedom ring....makes me so proud...and then today our federal government filed a law suit against Arizona?!?!...really?...because that state wants (NEEDS) to enforce immigration laws that already exist? Have we all taken our democracy for granted for too long? Have we been too complacent about the politics around us? Are you paying attention to the agenda of the current administration? Does it scare you to death? I don't want to live in a socialist country. I pray the celebration of Independence Day doesn't become a remembrance for the history books.
Whew!...that's a lot to think about. What are your thoughts?

To end on a lighter note...I received a huge shipment of new merchandise today....think Christmas y'all!
