Your turn

By the power invested in me by, well, me — and a questionable investment it is, I dare say — I hereby proclaim this the Independence Day Weekend Open Thread. Do unto it what you will, within reasonable limitations. (In other words, easy on the vuvuzelas.) This will remain near the top of the page for a day or two.

    Three cheers for the red, white & blue! Impractical, probably, and expensive, definitely… but awesome nonetheless. It’s probably a good thing I’m not independently wealthy. I might be dangerous. :)

    Yay USA! Still a great place to live – despite the apparent efforts of so many!

    The rain we had this weekend is welcome at my house.

    Way cool shoes, Gradual Dazzle. Totally impractical, but hey, fantastic shoes are not subject to the laws of practicality. :)

    You might look down on vuvuzelas but they can be used for classical music.

    I saw that courtesy of a Facebook friend. I was amazed at the players’ expertise, and perhaps more amazed at their ability to keep a straight face.

    Everyone be super careful out there with the sparklers. You’ll put your eye out.

    Happy Independence Day to you! Thank you for the FREEDOM to rant and ramble in your post! And to use exclamation points when they’re not necessary!
    Sorry. Tonight we go to the Red, Hot and Blue Festival, wherein we will watch fireworks, eat free food, buy a couple of pops and thank God that we live here.
    Also hope y’all aren’t soaking too badly in the remnants of the deluges from Texas.

    Boomer Sooner!
