Well, my fourth of July post suffered a major glitch for some odd reason.
Foreign or local nationals is yet to be decided.
On the morning of the 4th, I went to hit the publish button and to my surprise, nothing posted.
Quickly, with a rising sense of panic, I went in twice to cut and paste the post,
creating a “new” post in order to attempt a “re”- publish.
Twice again, nothing…only the day prior’s post.
Hummm… or more like Agggghhhhhh…
Finally, the third, or perhaps was it the fourth or fifth time??, was the charm…
However, later, several folks told me that the post never showed up in their Reader
but that they had to go to my regular WP site of cookiecrumbstoliveby to find it.
Odd…to say the very least.
In the meantime, spending the 4th with the Mayor and her new Sheriff, it was
apparent that the spirit of the famous 1940’s great competitive swimmer and actress
Ester Williams was alive in well in the Mayor as she donned her swimming cap for a
celebratory dip in the watermelon pool.
While the Mayor was busy with her photo ops, the Sheriff was busy showing off his red, white and blue
Patriotism while enjoying a refreshing bottle of formula…
Thank you dear Founding Fathers, along with all the countless men and women, throughout the
decades, who freely gave their all in order that one day a little girl would have the joyous freedom
to play in a watermelon wadding pool while her little brother enjoyed a bottle of formula,
all the while a loving grandmother cherished the moment of a family’s 4th of July and has the
freedom to have a tiny platform to speak her mind…
“I must study Politics and War that my sons may have liberty to study Mathematics and Philosophy.”
John Adams, letter to Abigail Adams, May 12, 1780.
Esther Williams indeed, right down to the cute swim cap. Our country has its flaws but when we look at these young faces we can continue to have hope. They a!re the future!
So cute! And I love the quote from John Adams to his wife! Don’t worry about the odd lateness of the post, here in America every day is Independence Day. 🙂
But the 4th post was about our freedoms and Slavery so I wondered
Ah..old guys and plaid shirts. It’s the official uniform of age
I cropped Gregory’s head out of the picture as I knew he’d have a fit 🙂
Thanks Jim 😊
