Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. "Mankind." That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it's fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom... Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution... but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: "We will not go quietly into the night!" We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on! We're going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!

I wanted to share my picture on here since I wasn't able to yesterday. I hope all of you lovely people had a great 4th:

We have a ton of folks coming and going over the weekend. I spent today prepping ahead...veggie trays/dips, fruit salads, pound cakes, desserts. Thank goodness for two refrigerators or I'd be in trouble. But we're looking forward to seeing many relatives and friends.

Wherever you may be, whatever you may have planned, be safe and have a very happy holiday. I remember to take a few moments to thank our men and women of the Armed Forces, past and present, for their service to our country to ensure the freedom and independence we celebrate over the next few days.

Well, my plans did come through and the rain held off. I'm going to post a few of the better photos of the show that I took. (The show was in Camilla, Ga). I have video of the Grand Finale, but I don't know how to post it. The showlasted about 30 minutes, not bad a small city.

My personal favorite:

Love your Fireworks pics AG! Fireworks are hard to shoot at the best of times.

I hope all my American friends both on and off the Border had a fantastic Independence Day!

07-07-2015, 03:02 PM
They are nice pics, AG. I didn't even think to take any pics of the ones we saw! My pics are of my grandson and little cousins faces watching!

07-07-2015, 03:17 PM
Thanks GA and Brooke. :)

It was just my mom and I. She watched from the car while I got out and took those photos. They turned out better than I thought they would (I used my smartphone camera).

Hoping everyone in the good ole U.S.A. had a wonderful Independence Day. My two sisters and I had a 'sisters' weekend at my oldest sister's place on the Chesapeake Bay. We had a good time, but the weather was horrible. It rained the whole time and was windy and chilly. We were going to cook out for dinner, but we just cancelled and headed home early instead.

07-04-2016, 08:19 PM
Happy 4th of July!!!!! :D

Hope everyone in the US is having a great one. We weren't really able to do anything either. It's been really rainy and chilly here too, not at all how it usually is this time of year. Wasn't able to do a cookout today but we had one back on Saturday since it was perfect weather that day and we knew what was coming. Had the concert yesterday too so we're all relaxing and getting ready to go back to work tomorrow.

07-04-2016, 11:58 PM
Happy 4th of July!!!!

Happy (belated) 4th of July to my fellow Americans!

I wasn't able to do anything this year, but I hope everyone else had a good 4th.

Happy Independence Day
once again to everyone in the USA! http://www.anchoredbygrace.com/smileys/sflag171.gif

We went to one of my husband's brother's for his annual barbecue and fireworks. Lots of fun and food!

07-04-2018, 09:38 PM
Happy Independence Day
To All In the US!
Also, a very special "THANK YOU" to all who have served!

07-03-2019, 03:04 PM
Wishing everyone in America and on the Border a fun and safe holiday!
We will be going to one of my husband's brother's for barbecue and fireworks. It's gonna be hot so the kids will be swimming. I will swim at home first! :lol:

What's everyone doing?

07-03-2019, 03:23 PM
Our town parade goes by our house, so we will have a bunch over to watch it. Then we'll have a cookout afterwards for about 25 people or so. I've been cooking all day and am taking a little break before I finish. Have a fun and safe 4th of July holiday!

07-03-2019, 04:49 PM
Happy Independence Day, everyone!

If it doesnít get rained out, we might go see one of the local parades. Also, probably take the boat out and watch fireworks over the water. Itís become sort of a tradition for us.

07-04-2019, 11:42 AM
Happy Independence Day!

I'm not feeling well today, so I might just stay in, unfortunately. At least I can watch the fireworks on TV! Stay safe, everyone who's going out today and tonight!

07-04-2019, 12:48 PM
:blueblob:HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!:blueblob:

​Wishing everyone a great day of picnics, parades, and fireworks!

Hope you are feeling better, Soda. I'm off to work!

HAPPY 4TH OF JULY everyone!

I went to my little city's Independence Day parade this morning. I love seeing all the kids dressed in red, white & blue & their bikes & wagons decorated. Too cute!!
I will be heading out in a little bit for an afternoon/evening of food, friends, fun & fireworks in downtown H-town. Always good music & great fireworks!!
I know our country is definitely not perfect but this holiday always reminds me how truly thankful I am to be a citizen!!GOD BLESS AMERICA!

Soda - I hope you feel better! I was just remembering this morning about the 4th of July we spent in Muscle Shoals a few years ago. So much fun!! I wonder if Glenn's photo is still hanging in the hotel?
