Happy 4th

Happy Independance Day to all you U.S. folks. This pretty much sums up what I love about the 4th:

"You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism."          
- Erma Bombeck

I plan to pig out as patriotically as possible.


  1. Love that quote! Happy 4th to you too, Amy!

  2. I remember my mom reading Erma Bombeck out loud from the newspaper every Sunday while growing up. She was one funny lady! Happy Fourth of July, Amy!

  3. Erma is a favorite around here -- a local lady who became loved by America.

    Happy Independence Day!

  4. Love the idea of pigging out patriotically :oD

  5. Interestingly, that's how we celebrate Australia Day too :)

  6. Great quote. So true. So true.

    Hope you had a great 4th!

  7. I really loved this post, : ) thanks! God Bless the USA!! I quilted a flag last year, really enjoyed it too.

  8. Nicely said, Amy! Hope you and your family had a great one! And the quilts are gorgeous, as always. :)

  9. I love the sound of that, pigging out as patriotically as possible!
