Happy Independence Day!
I find it amusing to be celebrating Independence Day in the very country we struggled to be independent from.
My parents report that they are having the traditional BBQ with friends and family followed by fireworks. I'm feeling shameful that I didn't even remember to wear red, white and blue today. But I have just sung along to the 1993 live recording of Whitney Houston singing the Star Spangled Banner at Superbowl XXV. I think it may be the best version of the anthem I've heard. Watch it on YouTube here.
Today is also the day my husband and I pick up our new Siberian kitten, separating her from mama and siblings. It will be her Independence Day as well. Perhaps we'll call her 'Indy'.
To all of those Americans reading this - Happy July 4th!
