You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism. ~Erma Bombeck

Here’s a bright, kaleidoscopic image that seems appropriate for the Fourth of July!  It’s one of a series of photomontages created from pictures of tree bark.  

Wishing everyone a safe and happy Fourth.  Dig your toes in the sand, hang out in the shade and be careful of the potato salad.  (And I hate to disagree with Ms. Bombeck, but if you think you have overeaten… you have.)
