Yes,  birthdays, plural!

Happy Birthday, Daughter!!!

SAMSUNGThis from a birthday just a few years ago,  Red, white, and blue cupcakes for her friends.     Sighhhhh….and now she has a son just about that age.    She’s spending this birthday up in the sky someplace,  in airplanes between Israel and California.    “Home” will feel like one of her birthday presents this year, I’m sure.

And then:  Happy Birthday,  our nation, the United States of America!   Thank you to Our Founding Fathers!    What a beautiful place you gave us to protect and to care for!!

fireworksFireworks!  From a city not too far away from me,  and looking suspiciously like birthday candles!

Was it President Adams who decreed that on July 4th the nation shall honor the founding of our nation with  celebrations and fireworks!!!

Will do.

And will report seriously on just what this “founding” of our nation includes.
