4th of July in Small Town, America


The little town near my writing retreat lets it all hang out for their 4th of July parade.

What state is this town in, or is it just a state of mind? It looks inviting for a future 4th celebration, good for an entry in a book to be titled "Off the Beaten Track Towns in which to Celebrate One's Patriotism"

It's a Colorado state of mind.

Such gleefully inappropriate flag desecration! (According to the flag code.)

Um. If it's bad to burn a flag, is it almost as bad to wash it in hot water?

bob king - they are gleeful, aren't they? Personally, I think such gleeful display of our flag is a wonderful way to celebrate our country.

Thanks for visiting!

The soundtrack to this has to be "Little Pink Houses" by John Mellencamp ("ain't that America, you and me; ain't that America, somethin' to see, ain't that America, home of the free...). And it looks like it was an absolute blast!

Reminds me of Mendocino on the CA coast
