Happy Independence Day

COTTonLINE wishes all of our readers a Happy 4th of July. Be safe, have fun, remember the sun screen and mosquito repellant, eat and drink well in moderation, and enjoy tonight's fireworks. If you've got a U.S. flag, fly it today.

Something to remember on this day when we celebrate our Independence: freedom isn't free. Our freedom was purchased with the blood of patriots, the lives of heroes, and the expenditure of untold billions.

The DrsC have visited at least briefly 115 countries. We've yet to see a place we'd happily trade for the U.S. on a permanent basis.

Every time we return home from overseas, no matter how much fun we've had traveling, there is a relief as we touch down in the States. Warts and all, we love the good old U.S. of A., every state of which we've visited, most repeatedly.
