Hooray for the Red, White and Blue!
Swoon block makeover. I love it when I can use things I once would have thrown away. It makes me feel so good. Like I just won a bizillion dollars or something. It's that whole something-for-nothing thing.
I really love red, white and blue!
You're a grand old flag!
You're a high-flying flag!
And forever in peace may you wave.
You're an emblem of the land I love -
The home of the free and the brave!
Every heart beats true 'neath the red, white and blue
Where there's never a boast or brag,
But should auld acquaintance be forgot,
Keep your eye on the grand old flag!
That chorus from George M. Cohan has been rolling around in my head all morning, so it just had to come out! And most of it from memory too (although I did check the words before I hit "publish".)
So Happy Birthday, America! And grateful thanks to all those who have served and are serving our country to help keep our liberties (including you, WH!)
