Off to Merryville

Miss Bev and I are ready to head out to Merryville. I sure hope to see you there. There is nothing like the Fourth of July in the good ol' U.S. of A! Picnics, parades, camaraderie with our fellow man and a grand finale of fireworks and patriotic music. Joy!

Before we left, we snapped some shots of the flags flying in all their glory--inside and out. Flags by the mailbox, and flags in the flowers. (I even found some Cracker Jacks for the boys to enjoy tonight!)

I put these little patriotic birds on my topiaries on the porch (along with a half chewed wooden flag--wonder which kitty got that!).

Ok, the wagon is hitched and we're off to Merryville with glee in the heart! Miss Bev has her tap dance outfit on and is glad to be feeling up to par! (Have you ever seen a cat tap dance before? Only in Merryville! Wait 'til you see Miss Luna's act!) We'll see you there!! May God Bless America!!

My dearest Rosa, I'm so glad to hear you are coming! It simply isn't a celebration 'til you arrive. Do be careful driving my friend, and if I may make a little suggestion...Dear Clarice has made a little more of that Sangria you liked so well last year, so perhaps you should just plan on staying the night. You do remember last year, don't you? ...and me unable to swim!!!
Love all your decorations! Especially the birds and that lovely arrangement on your door!
Thanks for the good time!
Hugs right back at you dear Rosa!

P.S. Miss Luna sends her best regards to Miss Bev. We are so very pleased she is making the trip with you!

The woodcutter really wants one of those caravans, for real. What he'd do with it I don't know, he just really, really , really wants one.

Hope you had a wonderful time! Love all the decorations. I had a vase full of little American flags as the setting at a dinner last Sunday attended by an American friend visiting from NY. She freaked out when she saw the flags, as though I was making some kind of right wing political statement. I really don't understand what all the fuss is about -it's our national symbol, after all. Whenever I see it all around the world, I'm always proud - and that has nothing to do with politics or who's in temporary charge of the White House. It's our history, after all.
