Happy Fourth of July!!

July 4th, 2017 · 1 Comment

Today is the 4th of July.

170704a

Everyone is proudly displaying the American flag.

170704b

The flag is a symbol of freedom. Freedom to use it as a window curtain. Freedom to acquire and keep things (except when selling).

170704c

The flag encourages you to work harder.

170704d

The freedom to convert a covered patio into a living space and covering the fireplace with the American flag.

170704e

We are grateful the bed was made.

170704f

Happy 4th of July!

Ugh.
