America the Beautiful ... in Ojai

Happy 4th of July!!!

From the Dick Cavett Show, September '72

These were taken July 4, 2011, up in Ojai, at my parents house.

My sis and my nephew Benjamin!


Ben's first "snakes."

And my nephew's first sparkler! (Can't believe how much he's grown since then!)

Fireworks by the pool ...


And then fireworks at the high school ...

Whatever you do, this 4th of July, I hope it's spectacular.

O beautiful for patriot's dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears.
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea.
~Katherine Lee Bates

Blessings and light!

That's so cute Lucinda. My grandkids should be here in a few and we will go buy fireworks with them. We always do our own show at the farm with a bonfire and cookout. Hope yours is wonderful.

Forgot to say, you must have a good zoom lens because your firework pics are beautiful.
