Independence Day

I'm obviously slacking in my blogging lately. I have a number of posts planned, just no time still. My sweet sister is coming out from Baton Rouge tomorrow for the weekend--we'll probably hit the little parade in the neighboring town, take home a sackful of candy, and go fishing.

For Independence Day this year, why don't you read the Declaration of Independence while you're waiting for the parade to start? And regardless of how you feel about the presenter, here's a fabulous article on the fates of many of the signers of the Declaration who pledged "our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor" when they put their names on that document.

Enjoy your weekend, hit a tea party if you're so inclined and there's one happening near you, and remember it's more than hot dogs and fireworks.

I saw an article where Bull Sharks are swimming up into the bayou's and in the rivers in Louisiana. Hope they don't gobble up your sister! But then, I guess she probably doesn't swim there anyway, because of the gators and moccasins.
