Murdo Girl…Our flag was still there

One of our neighbors put on the most amazing fireworks display Saturday night. It was an hour long grand finale. He told Kip he has done this for the past thirteen years. What an awesome thing to do for the neighborhood.

When I saw those fireworks exploding in the sky, I thought about the meaning of the Star Spangled Banner. Our flag made it through the perilous night, the rockets red glare and the bombs bursting in air, and still waves over the land of the free.

And then I thought about how beautifully Renee Miller, a Murdo girl, sings our National Anthem.

Happy Independence Day!

    Yes, the black snakes were a lot of fun. I liked bottle rockets too.

    Very appropriate MG! What a beautiful voice.

      I’m told that was not am easy song to sing. My favorite on the fourth were the black snakes that squirmed around when you set them on fire.

    Happy 4th, Mary. Why was the one military man carrying an axe??

      I asked Renee and she said he was a firefighter military man. Good question.

        Thanks, Renee. Don’t know why those little questions niggle at me. It was in a way a humorous photo, like they were ready to fight with whatever they could grab. I expected a kitchen knife and a plunger as well. Ha. Wouldn’t that make a funny video, marching in formation?
