I just did a patriotic peramble around my home “populated area”, about 5.5 miles, dressed in the flag graphic and red white’n’blue, And carrying a flag and a sign:
WAVE, HONK, OR SMILE IF YOU LOVE OUR COUNTRY!
I woke up so angry about the terrible, funereal atmosphere in our country today. This has GOT to be the nadir. The expenditure of energy In striding along was therapeutic.
One woman sitting out on her deck asked, “Is this a parade?” I said, “yes! But it’s just me.”
In general, the response was gratifying. Especially considering I only had a hand-lettered sign, so not too easy to read at a glance.
Happy Fourth to you O Ratty, and may 7/4/21 be better!
