I'm here today to celebrate the Fourth of July with this vintage sheet music I came across at a thrift store:
"The United States Of America", A Song About Our Great Nation".
I had never heard of this song before, written in 1941 by a gentleman who was a First Lieutenant in the Air Force:
There are fold-out pages inside with fabulous pictures of some of the parade floats:
Besides which, we have a drought here, and dry grass all around, not a good combination when you add fireworks into the mix.
But LAST Friday, I did get to end my stint at Disneyland sitting on a park bench, looking down Main Street, USA, watching the fireworks show above Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle.
(And just out of curiosity, what's the high temperature forecast for you today where YOU live?
Here, it's around 100 degrees.
Could be worse.)
