("on" - often pronounced "own")

That RC's company was born in 1905 - right down in Georgia.  My daddy knew 'his people'.

 


 

All the preparations and celebration are naturally accompanied by a patriotic tune,

 - - or two :

You can sing along if you want ...

 

....Oh-h-h, say can you "Tweet",

Re : the meat and the sweets

 May they e'er be "Flag" eats ....

 

From the mountains to the prairies

To the oceans white with foam

God bless America  (and bless your heart too) ....

 

Away - away down South in Dixie ....

 


 

And may YOUR 4TH  be sunny and pleasant as well !

 

Bye now...call me....ya'll be careful, you hear...

P.S. Setting those sparklers off resulted in setting the firecrackers off,

which resulted in the smoke detectors going off -

which brought the Memphis fire department over for a short visit. 

We all had a fine time - took some pictures too!
