Today is July 2nd, which as far as I'm concerned, is real Independence Day:  it's when the delegates of the Continental Congress voted for freedom from Britain.  The 4th was when the final version of the Declaration was signed and released to the public.  Which date we chose says something about the American psyche, when you think about it.

It's also my parents' wedding anniversary.  (Shh!)  Here's to an amazing, loving, always funny couple.

This song makes me think of my family and childhood:
