Happy Independence Day America!

July 4th

Happy Birthday, ie: Independence Day to the country that I love, the United States of America.  Long may our Flag wave!

We celebrate on the 4th but the Declaration of Independence was actually signed on the 2nd and published on the 4th.

 

Red, White & Blue Mini Skein and Bookmark.

I bought a cute patriotic mini skein of yarn to test out for a bookmark.  I bought this from Awenydd Yarn & Fiber on Etsy.  This is how the bookmark worked out, I think it turned out cute.  Independence Day is coming soon!!  Tho’ my understanding is that it was actually signed on July 2, 1776 and published on the 4th.  So, we could celebrate Independence day twice!

I have been awful about spinning during this year’s Tour de Fleece during the Tour de France competition.  I will spin but starting from way behind, hahaha.  I will be better prepared next year, it’s the thought that counts, right?  uh hu (the little ones in my family hate when I do the uh hu thing, cos they know I’m calling out their “miss statements”.) 🙂

 

Memorial Day 2020

memorial day

I give a special reverence to those who have given the ultimate sacrifice, their lives, for what they loved, a free and safe country for their families and all of us.    May we honor them in all we do and may we always remember that freedom has a price and keep this country free and safe in their honor.

Veteran’s Day 2019

Veteran's Day

For our Military, who have given service and sacrificed for our freedom!

 

I would like to take a moment to thank all those veterans who fought in the various wars and “police actions” for our freedom.   Thank you for your service, and thank you to your families for allowing you to do that.

I would also like to thank my Dad, who is also a Veteran!

Remembering 9/11 in 2019

9-11

I remember where I was when this happened, do you?

As we remember the 18th year since this heinous attack was perpetrated on the citizens of the USA, may we take a moment to remember all those who died on this day 18 years ago and thank those who helped in the aftermath. I would like to salute those heroes on flight 93, and all those who, on that day, willingly and unselfishly sacrificed their lives to save the lives of others. I also salute those in our armed services who have given their lives and those who continue to fight, selflessly putting their own lives in jeopardy to protect us and others from terrorism. They are all heroes to me and I will never forget.
