4th of July “Collection” of Retorts

I’m not sure if two qualifies as a “collection”, but in this case, it’s all I have.

The 4th of July is one of my favorite, if not favorite of American holiday’s…one, because who doesn’t like independence…and two…who doesn’t like hot dogs…and three…who doesn’t like fireworks, especially on the 4th of July….?

And to all my British friends, across the sea, or wherever you may be…it’s not that we’re gloating about that whole 1776 thing….but yeah…maybe we are…A LOT!

I mean why else the fireworks?

So deal with it….or you know, I mean…bygones….

And you still have the Beatles…although most of them did move here too, at one point or another….


Anyway, since the 4th is one of my favorite days of the year, I like to look back and reminisce about the past, especially since reminiscing about the future is odd, at best, and tends to encourage those funny looks people give me sometimes…okay, most times.

And since I have a couple of what I think are pretty interesting Independence Day look back pieces from the past…plus I’ve been too busy screwing around the last couple of weeks to write a new one for today…I thought I’d share the “vintage” ones with you.

The first, some of you who’ve been hanging around for a while may have seen…or maybe even seen twice…so don’t give away the ending—but yeah…we win!

And for all the new eyes, who’ve come late to the FLR party—which is actually kind of rude, by the way…more bygones—I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I did writing them…you know, in the past…because I definitely did not write them in the future and come back in time to post them…then…and then again, later…and again now.

Because that would be weird…and we try to avoid that…as much as we can…sometimes…as much we do talking in the third person…especially since the third person likes to talk for themselves….

You know?

Nah…don’t’ even try…. 

Just enjoy the stories, and enjoy your 4th of July…..
