Thanks for the kind words from our neighbors and overseas friends...!
It was, for a lot of us, a nice 4-day weekend as Independence Day fell on a Tuesday, to boot.

Hey, Jeff, nice to post that shot. That's the King in our Bicentennial year of '76 and I remember that year fondly. Just tonight I was mentioning to a someone that the nation is now 230 years and how big the celebration will be another 20 years from now. That will remind me a lot of '76.

I was just a little too young to realize that Elvis was not long for this world, otherwise I might have pestered my parents to check out his tour dates... :!: That he was still participating in the civic and public life of the time (and mentioned the year in a concert or two) is kind of sad to me as it was, of course, about to end. Sort of like when he mentions in a concert in his last year "I could die now and I'd have a smile on my face" or some such, and the "Auld Lang Syne" as he rang in '77, his last year...

(sigh...) :(

If i died tonight,it would only take a year to get the smile off my face! from the wonderful import a hot winter night in dallas!
