First, I don't even like quickies, in general if you are going to do a thing, take your time and do it right, but I have nothing big to say.

*Why do we no longer call it independence day? It is 'Happy 4th". Are we trying to forget our independent roots? With all the non freedoms and restrictions we have today I can see why we would want to forget.

*Back home, glad to be in my own bed, but not so happy about my own laundry/dishes to do.

* Received a 'canceled your card due to inactivity' notice today. Haven't used the card the whole time I knew my husband so not to surprised. Though husband is considering using his oldest card just so it has activity and doesn't get canceled, I don't think it is worth it personally.

*Sewed up the wetbag again. I had bought it for my mother to use with wet swimsuits (she would love the flower pattern) but needed one on the way home, figured one wash wouldn't hurt, well it ripped on the side. I asked and received a replacement, but different pattern Frown. Not sure what to do with the original, I was encouraged by folk to sew it and use it. So I did, but after a dozen washes it split further up the bag, so I sewed it again, this time I went part way up the non ripped side, hope to prevent further tearing.

*Taking it easy today, hope to get a family nap in to recover from staying up so late so many nights in a row.

*Plans to go back to PA over Labor day, Ren-fest and family picnic, though we might pick a different weekend.

    I didn't forget the root of the holiday; I made fun of my British husband all night and called him "redcoat"! He in return officially forgave the U.S. for wasting all that tea, saying it was a long time ago. Smile

    I am surprise how many people really don't know what we are celebrating.

    The celebration is really for the approval for the Declaration. However, it was not approved on the 4th. It was really approved on July 2. It was signed on August 2. Nothing happened on July 4.

    So, why July 4??? It was celebrated then because without tv, radio and internet, it took till the 4th to get the word out.

    Huh, now I didn't know that, I kinda assumed it wasn't the exact date, but now I have specifics!

    We knew it was for the Declaration; the tea thing was just a joke (probably spurred by those idiotic tea parties that people held in some places on the 4th).

    It also says (on Wikipedia, but does have reference link) that the date on the public version of the Declaration is the 4th. Didn't think to check that when I was in D.C. looking at it!

    we have Australia day on january 26th - basically if you want to have a ncie day here STAY HOME because all you will come accross is drunk bogans wearing the australian flag as a cape, in large groups causing chaos and giving the police a hard time. it's disgusting how such a beautiful day for a country can be ruined or forgotten.
