Tribute to the AMERICAN FLAG and a HAPPY BIRTHDAY, AMERICA

American Flag flying in our yard!!!!
Welcome to JULY,  my Friends.    Tomorrow,  we Americans celebrate our country's birthday...   Happy Birthday,  America,  and Happy 4th of July to all of you!!!!   I hope you are with family and friends and are celebrating all day tomorrow remembering what a great country we live in!!!!!!

Today,  in honor of my country,   I have chosen to pay tribute to our FLAG.  The flag is so important to me, a VERY Patriotic American.   George and I fly the flag in our front yard year-round --and it is SO special to us. It is lit at nights ---and seems to light our path when we come home from somewhere after dark.

I hope you enjoy these little tributes --and I hope they mean something to you today --and always.





I love John Adams'  words.   Let's CELEBRATE America and our Flag.

That would be ME:   Betsy Banks Adams!!!!
Whatever you do tomorrow and wherever you are: be joyful,  be loving,   be happy,  be SAFE,  be understanding,  be forgiving; ----AND   keep smiling and LAUGHING....

Hugs to ALL and Happy Birthday, America

I used to tie our national flag in front of our home on independence and republic days... everyone is pride about their country and if people are respected each other’s there isn’t an issue anywhere. Happy Birthday to your America and I wish you all the best while celebrating 4th July.

Happy Birthday America. You may have a fault or two but you are still the grandest country to live in on this planet.
Have a wonderful and safe 4th George and Betsy.

Wonderful post for the Fourth Betsy! But I think my favorite of everything is the next to last shot of the flag in YOUR yard. Plans? I hope you have a great one and get to see fireworks. And if I know George, he will be snapping fireworks somewhere.
