First, I'd like to say Happy Fourth to each and everyone of you guys !!!
I am very proud to live in a country where I can wander this beautiful land with freedom. Where I have a voice, and where I am not starving or persecuted because of my belief system, or the simple fact that I was born a woman. This is truly a gift and I live in gratitude for the sheer "luck" of being born in a little mid-western town in rural Kentucky. I also am feeling really sappy today, and want to say thanks to all the lovely people who are following me on my mid-life journey. The WW40 is just a bit of tongue-in-cheekiness, and my dry sense of humor and ability to laugh at myself. After all, I'm not really saving lives or anything. That's another freedom I am grateful for - the ability to be myself, flaws and all, and still not feel "judged" by Blogdonia (at least by my BBB"s, (Bestest Blog Buddies)! Though, on Weardrobe, someone said I looked like the Kardashian Mom! A compliment? Hmmm.....
We are all different. And I'm damn glad! What a boring and insane world it would be if everyone were like me! Yikes, the notion gives me chills!
I have noticed the average American does one of 3 things on this particular holiday:
1. Has a cook-out. 2. Does massive amounts of lawn work, left over from spring. 3. Goes to Disney World. I prefer the latter!!!
Today we are in a full-on "heat advisory" in Cinti, which means watching re-runs of Greatest American Hero on Sci-Fi til after 7pm, at which time, we can start up the grill, lawn mower and get gas if we want! I usually don't do strapless, but the holiday weekend made me feel a little sassy. I still don't do it well. And in honor of being an American, I am wearing a pair of Liz Claiborne "Elephant Ear" pants. Who knew Liz was so cool ! I've got my vintage red/white striped scarf on my head, and some vintage beads and a bracelet from another great American institute, the Antique Mall ! I doubled the strand to make a choker. Guess I'll go eat some hot-dogs now!

I REALLY like these pants ;) - Plus they have friggin' pockets !!!
P.S. I miss you, Daisy :)
Have a great day!
