100 and other magic numbers

This is the 100th post on this blog! Whooee! It just kinda crept up on me, sort of like when you are sitting around at dark with all your friends and just jawin' away- and pretty soon you look up and light is beginning to fill the sky... kinda like that. I've been having so much fun learning so much about you all, well I guess it's just too much fun to stop.

And Happy Independence Day to you too! July 4th is always my favorite holiday. I love the red,white and blue of it, the parades, the families getting together,the heat ,the songs and especially the fireworks. Our little town has quite a nice display over the Carquinez Straits. There is never any fog here at that time of night and so it is brilliant and beautiful. I can't help but remember the words- "..and the rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our Flag was still there..."

Gives me goosebumps. ( Are you all surprised that I get a little sentimental about our Country?)

Plus it is my 26th wedding anniversary. Yep- and they said it couldn't be done. HA! Who else could have put up with either of us I always say. He's not a Stud Spud, but he's damn close and I love him- better than that- he loves me back!

And to top it all off- it's my Birthday! I won't tell you how old I really am, but suffice to say that I am not as old as dirt, but I'm older than the internet and I feel like a kid of twenty (sometimes). I believe you are only as old as you think and as young as you feel!

I guess I'll just keep going on all the above fronts for a little while longer and I hope you'll ride along. It's a pleasure and a priveledge having you guys as my saddle pards!
