** Independence Day 2010 **

My blog buddy, June Freaking Cleaver posted a really thoughtful, well written birthday greeting to the USA. Her views are pretty much the same as mine, which I find really cool, but I'm also a little ticked that I didn't think of her idea first!

I suggest that everyone who reads my blog, jump on over there and see what June had to say. Hey, I've already given you the link....so there's no excuse not to! Leave June a comment if you'd like, and tell her "Becky sent me!"

*Disclaimer: I didn't get paid anything for this! Ms. June is not paying me or bribing me in any way! Just thought my friends would enjoy reading it! : D

(One more note: My son, Scott, seems to be doing better. I've decided not to post any new information about him for awhile, since his condition seems to change daily. Please keep him in your thoughts.)

Happy Birthday, America.......

    Hi Chatty! Thank you. Yes, I know he was happy to be home!!

    It's been quite noisy in my neighborhood this evening....all kinds of fireworks going off...hopefully they'll be stopping soon. Luckily, Tiger doesn't seem to be affected by them this year!

I love comments, especially because I know the time it takes to stop and type one, even a short one! Thanks very much!
