4th of July Fun Facts

8 Jul

1 – America is full of generous boot-loaning soles. I mean, souls.

2 – THIS is how we celebrate Independence Day in Oklahoma. And THIS.

3 – Miss Wisabus has the purdiest shade of patriotic nail polish I’ve ever seen.

4 – Charlie is actually the cutest and sweetest Bassett Hound on the planet.

5 – IT WAS TOO COLD IN OKLAHOMA ON JULY 4 TO MELT S’MORES IN ALUMINUM FOIL ON A CAR DASHBOARD.

6 – Next to the word “gracious” in the dictionary is a picture of Ree Drummond. Partly because of her winning smile in spite of her sore feet, partly because of the lovely friends and family she had gathered around her, partly because of how she treated my friends with kindness and invited us to share a quilt…and partly because she really knows how to cook a potato.

7 – Marlboro Man cooks one heckuva great steak.

8 – Independence Day is all about food.

And maybe a little about freedom from tyranny over the mind of mankind.

Thank you, MM & P-Dub, for allowing me to share the joy of a country home, a sky full of fireworks and stars, and a slice Americana pie to celebrate Independence Day.

And thank you, Mr. & Mrs. Wisabus for including me and driving me and for the treasure of your friendship.

Don’t forget to tune in to the Food Network for Ree’s special Independence Day episode.
