Potato Salad and Sparklers


“You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4,

not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle,

but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness.

You may think you have overeaten,

but it’s patriotism.”

– Erma Bombeck

May your parades boast marching bands,

may your Frisbees soar,

may your children know the magic of catching tossed Smarties from the Boy Scouts’ float,

and may the fireworks light up your summertime sky and leave you grinning like Yankee Doodle herself.
