Fourth of July

Wishing you a happy Fourth of July!

Here in my neck of the woods we've got more of our big Fourth of July celebration today, winding up with fireworks this evening. Things went well at our celebration yesterday, at least until a sudden downpour forced them to cancel the tractor pull part way through. Hopefully the weather will be more cooperative today.

You'll disbelieve this coming from me, but I prefer to call the Fourth of July "Independence Day."

Well, okay, I like both names. Happy Independence Fourth!

Ah, but notice how cool Fourth Of July appears in this Where's George report for a dollar bill I received in town today at our big Lions Club Fourth of July event!

I looked but didn't see any cool version of "Fourth of July" in the report. Was it in an ad along the top? I refreshed a number of times and different ads came up, including a National Lampoon ad involving a "hot, topless broad," but still nothing with "The Fourth of July."

Well, the fireworks are climaxing, somewhere over the New Jersey palisades. I'm sitting here with some Irish cream liqueur in Manhattan by a window with a view of the dark lordly Hudson hardly flowing etc.

3. Radiance, vibrance. (e)
4. Structural integrity. (E-pc)

Like a flag like the eyes of a beautiful woman! (That's from Whitman, ya know, very valid!)

In the user's note on the topmost entry (mine) from New Albin, IA, July 4, 2007, 9:44 PM: Fourth Of July in three colors, Fourth [red] Of [white] July [blue]. (Blogger won't let me reproduce it directly here in this comment on my blog.)

I see it, I don't know how I missed it the first time. I guess I was expecting something ornate like on the magnified dollar bill on that Web page. You had a lot going on in your comment here, the dollar tracing, the three colors, three words, etc., I didn't get it all at once, it was like the first time I saw Star Wars. In fact I felt as confused and intimidated as Phil Hartman's Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer. Or maybe it was the Irish cream liqueur. :-)
