Happy 4th

Happy 4th of July. Independence day. We are truly blessed to live in this great country. While some of us don't have much it is a treasure to others that live in poorer countries. Can you imagine going without your TV. Now think of having to carry water so you will have water at your house to cook and bathe with.

I live on a very small check from disability and still manage to pay what I need to. There are things I 'want' but don't 'need' and when I think of what I do have I feel blessed.

I guess what I want to say here is I am proud to be an American and to live in the USA and people who put it down should see how we could be living.

Well I guess I got that out - happens every 4th of July - get tired of the whinners and now I have some place to share my feelings.

I will not feel bad about my doctors anymore - at least they are there for me - I just have to go through all the tests they want before they will operate on my leg. Knee still hurts but did manage to go get groceries by taking a pain pill just before we left and leaning on the buggy - needless to say we weren't there long.

Don't know what my room mate may have in mind for today. We play it by ear a lot of times. Maybe we will Barbque - though I make a great Barbeque in the oven - the secret that my Aunt told me years ago was to boil the ribs first till they are tender then put them in a pan with sauce and put them under the broiler. They sure turn out nice.

Well I am off to check some other blogs - Happy 4th again.

Well said! And Happy 4th to you too. America is the greatest country to live in on the planet. I hope that today is a good day for you and your room mate, and I think I'll go to the store and get me a package of ribs!
