gone fishin' (happy fourth of july!)


It's Independence Day here in the US, so I'm off on a quick little road trip, spending time with friends and family.  I'll be taking the rest of the week off, but will be back with more words and images on Monday. 

To all Americans, wherever you are in the world, Happy Independence Day.  Have loads of fun, and please stay safe!

"'I was reminded of all of this because I just saw a painting of Betsy Ross showing George Washington her flag, and she and all of her little child laborers are like 'Look at this bad-ass flag we made.  The only thing that would make this better is if we had glitter, except that glitter hasn’t been invented yet.'"  (read more)



 Song:  Firework by Katy Perry.  Yeah, sorry about this, but since Alex is the only natural-born American in our household, I figured she should be the one to pick today's song.
