PATRIOTIC PRETZELS




Just look at the patriotic pretzels in today's post!

Aren't they darling?

Guess what?  They tasted delicious, too.

One of my nieces made them for our Fourth of July bash to celebrate our country's independence as well as the birthday of one of my sister's!

My niece found the idea for them on Pinterest.

Yep, my sister was a firecracker baby who has reached the sixth decade of 
life!

(If interested, come back tomorrow and I'll show you the fabulous cake one of her daughters
made.)

Usually, I don't care for pretzels but these were, uh, how do I put it?

They were scrumptious.  


My darling niece dipped them in white chocolate, some of which was colored red and blue. 

She did such a great job!

Certainly to refuse to imbibe in just one of these would have been unpatriotic, don't you think?

DO YOU LIKE PRETZELS?

Baseball Bat American Flag on Glorious Fourth of July



This is a triumphant, happy day for all Americans.

This patriotic holiday, marking the independence of the United States of America, makes most residents proud to be Americans.

While at an appointment the other day, I looked up at one wall and was surprised to see this American flag, made completely out of baseball bats!

How American, for many, is that!

Truly, this day is joyous with marching bands and floats galore in parades across the nation.

The day is capped off with colorful fireworks booming away in the night sky.

Always, on this day, I stop and take a moment to remember all the soldiers, men and women, who have fought so bravely to keep this nation free. 

To them, we owe a debt of gratitude.

WHAT DO YOU LOVE ABOUT THIS HOLIDAY?

Flag Painted on Building




There's a hint of excitement in the air.

Everyone around here is  preparing, or at least thinking about the Fourth of July holiday tomorrow.

One of my sisters was born on the Fourth and always thought the whoopla was in her honor! Ha!  She's worthy of it, too, since she's  a pretty amazing woman.



While going to an out-of-town appointment, I saw the building shown in this post.

A huge American flag covered its entire side!

How perfect for the Fourth of July, was my main thought and, luckily, my handy little Lumix camera was in my purse.


So this Friday before the Fourth, hope you have a good day, no matter where you live!

WHAT IS ONE THING YOU ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO TODAY?
