Happy Independence Day

My friend Viv and I did another swap together. She sent me this cute Patriotic Mouse...So cute it reminded me of my childhood pet rat named Sammy. A sweet lil guy who lived almost five years. He was trained to come by name and would walk around the house and sit on my shoulder. I cried for a good year over his death....So this mouse/rat that Viv sent will forever be special to me.

We didn't make any huge plans for the fourth...Freckles and I were a little under the weather and to be honest we just didn't want to be out in the crowds. My hubby and a friend from church drove his vintage Ford Falcon along with a few gals from church in the town parade to advertise our church in the community. Then later that day we went to a BBQ at our church friends home. We cut out a bit early since Freckles was home with our dog...Then of course the fireworks started and freaked out K9 out till almost midnight.

Hope you all had a great day celebrating the birth of our nation. May God bless America, especially more so, with all the horrible things going on in our country. 
Happy Summer!!!

  1. Great parade idea! Sounds like a fun day except for poor Missy. Our dogs were okay and skated by the fireworks in our neighborhood but then some jerk shot 12 rounds off at 11:30 and so I was up until after 1AM trying to calm them down.
    Why do people think they have to shoot a gun to celebrate. Dangerous in more ways than one.
    Love you guys!
