Happy Fourth of July

Wishing all of my readers in the U.S.A. a Happy Fourth of July.  We still have the fireworks to view when it gets dark, but July 4th, 2015 is just about over.  There are swarms of mosquitoes outsides, so we will stay in our cozy car (like a drive-in movie) and watch them that way.  No one feels like showering off the bug repellant late at night.

We live in a small town that still has an old-fashioned parade down the main street.  It is very quaint and reminiscent of days gone by.  This year I took lots of photos to share with you, so you can see what it is like in our town.

There’s our favorite DQ in the background!  No, we didn’t get any today.  I barely had breakfast before we headed out the door.

I took this photo into a darkened store front and it captured what was behind me.

These two Yorkies were beyond cute and did really well considering the noise.  We left our two dogs at home.  They don’t appreciate the noise at all.

Hope you had a wonderful and safe holiday.  We are off to find a spot for the fireworks.

“July’s Favorite Colors”

Maybe it was because I was a July baby that made me love wearing red, white, and blue so much.  When I look back at childhood photos I find so many summer pictures of me in these colors.  I remember specifically asking for sailor dresses and red, white, and blue swimsuits.  Honestly, I think I was obsessed.

Here are a couple of photos of me on my 2nd birthday and my 8th birthday wearing red, white, and blue sailor dresses.  I loved ’em!


1968-166-dWhile this isn’t a sailor dress it is a red, white, and blue ensemble that my Little Darling, Gina, is modeling for you.  I couldn’t pass this fabric up—red, white, and blue in my favorite theme, floral, no surprise there, right?
