Happy Fourth... and Eighth!

Yep, that's me and my bro posing in front of the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, sometime in the 1970's. And what a fine era that was. My fashion sense hasn't changed much since then! Check out my snappy "Philadelphia" logo tee, and my brother's Superman Underoos tank (he'll hate me for sharing this picture, but hey, I wore Underoos too so don't laugh). We were born & raised in Philly, so there'll always be a bit of the "City of Brotherly Love" in us :0)

Liberty Bell trivia: On every Fourth of July there is a bell ringing ceremony. However, the most famous ringing occurred on July 8, 1776, to summon citizens of Philadelphia for the reading of the Declaration of Independence. So Happy Fourth and Eighth to you all!

~We're taking a short trip to Connecticut to see family and friends. This will be my first excursion out of Illinois state lines in a few years, and it's loooong overdue! Hope to post some neat pics from our trip when we return. Aaaaand, there will be delightful new *wee bears* & perhaps an ellie or two available... I'll update you when they are ready for adoption.

Remembering last years July 4th posting: when elephants fly!

Enjoy the long weekend! xo

You and your brother are so cute. Those underoos really date me, cause my kids wore those too. Wonder Women and Batman were their favorites.
Have a wonderful trip and we look forward to your pictures and posts when you get back.
Hugs,
Karen
