Happy Fourth of July!
Happy Fourth of July to everyone!
Which of course brings up the old question, "Do they have the fourth of July in France [or England, or any other country you wish to name]?
The answer, of course, is: "Yes, but they don't celebrate it as a holiday there."
Anyway, it's the Fourth of July here in the United States, and we're celebrating the anniversary of our nation's "casting off the shackles of oppression" in the usual fashion. (Though in my personal case, the "usual fashion" is not going out in the heat and humidity to cook stuff over an open flame, and in the evening, staying inside away from the heat and humidity and the mosquitoes but still being able to hear the local fireworks display at a nearby local park.)
So happy Fourth of July! Burgers, beer, and fries for everyone! (You know I had to tie heraldry into it somehow, right?)
