The Fourth of July, Then and Now

July 4, 2007 started out with rain and a layer of fish flies on the screen of the front door. When everyone was up (finally) we gathered for the traditional flag raising on the front porch. Pledge of Allegiance included.

How sad to think that the “youthful syncopation charmer” who delighted the crowds back in Iowa on the 4th of July, 1929 is no longer celebrating the holiday.
