And, another fine week it has been! The weather has been perfect and, as such, I was able to spend some quality time in the garden. It is all weeded, grass cut, plants dead-headed and fountains sparkling. I’ll be able to sit back and enjoy them over the holiday. Niki and Pico love sprawling out on the warm driveway and watch me work then “help” feed the birds. Picasso and Z are digging the weather as they graze all day on some very green grass. They both have fans on their stalls which will be on full blast the next couple of days to help cool them off. Lucky horses, pups and LKYGRL!!!
As we draw close to the 4th of July, the 242nd birthday of our great nation, let’s remember that it is not just another day off but a holiday commemorating our independence, then only 13 colonies, from the Kingdom of Great Britain in 1776. Thomas Jefferson was the principal author of the Declaration of Independence which was signed by 56 others including John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Samuel Adams, John Hancock and John Penn. The youngest signer was Edward Rutledge at age 26 and the oldest Ben Franklin at age 70. Two of the signers became president, John Adams, our second, and, Thomas Jefferson our third. Ironically both Adams and Franklin died on the same day, 7-4-1826. James Monroe died on 7-4-1831 and Calvin Coolidge, our 30th president, was born on 7-4-1872. Equally important this Fourth is to remember all who have died protecting our freedom and all those who have served in the past or now. Without their dedication and devotion to the liberty of all we would not be living the American Dream.
As is Stated in the Declaration –
“We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
