Default Happy 4th of July !!!!!!!

I hope sometime over this weekend everyone will be able to get out for a drive.
As for Sarah and meself, today will be that day. Unfortunately the rain we have been so desperately needing has come in three inches in the past 36 hours and another four inches due in from tomorrow till Tuesday. So, later this afternoon we shall take that drive for a fresh river caught Catfish Buffet. I'll able to try out her new brake and clutch pedal pads and see if the ride is any more quiet. As for the coolness, it's a cool day anyway.

Happy Independence Day everyone..................................

Everyone has a 4th of July............. As for as an Independence Day from Great Britain, not sure, I do know the Queen is still somewhat of a figurehead there.

Yip............on every country's calendar but for us, unless it's on the one in my garage for 1931, it's Independence Day tomorrow and no free rural delivery. Since I'm totally retired, I have no alarm clock and my only calendar is...that one!!!!

When I take Miss Daisy out, we always take our American Flag, along with the photo of my Late Dad and his toy!

We'll watch a long, loud movie, while Buster T. shudders from the fireworks.

Mitch,
Will you have to slap the shifter, with your cast? Tony's driving with a fractured collar bone & a sling.

We are still on July 1st here in Europe. I thought that it was only the hour and the way that you wrote the date that was different over there. I learn something new every day.

It's still July 1st here in Alaska. Independence Day, July 4th, is on Monday. Today, however, is Canada Day for our neighbors to the East.

Last year, our club drove our cars over to Whitehorse and participated in their parade on July 1st. Then back to Anchorage for our parade on the morning of the 4th.

"Happy" 4th of July? No thanks, born in the USA but not the country I grew up in. Overbearing "government", lawyers everywhere, illegals, whiners and welfare rats have more rights than a taxpayer does.
