Alphabe Thursday - 4 July 2014 - Good Question

It's time for Alphabe-Thursday again with Jenny at, Off on my tangent blog and
we're visiting the letter "G" today.


My letter for G is Good Question.

Since many of us are bloggers from the United States and Canada as well,
a good question comes to mind.   What important celebration does the beginning of July bring?  

Our celebrations are a very important time in both countries, but what about the folks that don't know what we're celebrating?

Which came first.  Canada Day or The Fourth of July aka Independence Day?

How will you celebrate?

Relaxing at home?


Will you bring out the party hats and fireworks?

For those of you still wondering which came first-

 Independence Day - Fourth of July 
The Birth of American Independence.

How will we celebrate? First, I am going to scrub the windows and door on my front porch, then I will finish sweeping all the ever-present live oak leaves off my deck (their old leaves fall in summer, not winter.) Rod will vacuum all the pet hair off our rugs, while I clean my kitchen and prepare for a "low-country boil" of fresh Georgia shrimp, corn on the cob, and little new potatoes, then make Barbara's fabulous salad I saw on her blog. We are having guests for dinner. We will be able to see several fireworks shows from our house. I will go to bed exhausted. How about you, sweetie?

Judie- Wow, great gads, no housework for me today, except for the watering of garden and flowers. Skipping the usual big family parade and fireworks this year. Spending it with just my daughter and her family after searching out the big planes that will wake up the skies at 8:00 pm and after a delicious meal and Peeps on the fire, it's bring a loving 6 year old kitty to her new loving home where she will be spoiled rotten by someone with time on their loving hands! Sorry that my dogs will be home for a bit (by themselves) with all the big bangs, but I'll hurry back!

Right now I'm celebrating by wondering if I should make the five hour drive to W.V. and see the family, or save aggravation and gas money (I'd have to drive the 334 miles back by Monday) by just calling on the telephone.

quiet day at home - except for neighbors shooting off fireworks. but that's been going on for a week, so nothing new...

I'll be relaxing at home. Maybe see some celebrations on television, if the hurricane didn't cancel it. And there will be a lot of noise around the neighborhood, even though it's against the law to set off your own fireworks!

Great scenery for relaxing, Karen♡♡♡ And I love the last picture; yes, I think we need to think about the meaning of these days and which we easily tend to forget :-)

Sending you Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan, xoxo Miyako*

We had a great 4th of July. Spent it with family and friends. Lots of food and fireworks. Good times.

I was in Boise, Idaho. Sleeping. Fireworks don't start there until 10:30 at night.


That is like at least two hours past my bedtime!

Thanks for a great link for the letter G.
