Isn't It Ironic?

We've been saving this snap since Memorial Day, when Chez posted it on his blog. Yes, Your Humble Scribe doubles as a blog-thief! At least we're giving credit where credit is due. A Lovely Lesson for our High School Journalistas & AP Lang Cherubs, we're sure!

Actually, Chez stole this snap his own self, taking it from Professional Photog Amy Claeys; the little girl is her daughter, Charlotte. FYI, Chez is the one who was fired a while back by CNN for--of all things--blogging. If you read his edgy posts, you'd wonder--as we did--about the pencil-necks at CNN. Seems you'd want this sharp-tongued social critic to be inside your tent, slinging his vitriol toward the outside world, instead of the other way around.

AnyWho, enjoy your Independence Day, y'all! Our little town has switched from Fireworks to a Laser Light Show. Seven people were burned pretty badly at last year's Fireworks Fiesta in town. Isn't it ironic? We think not. But you'd do well to ask Alanis Morissette. Another lesson, for another AP Lang Class. Click on the link to find out more!

BTW, Fellow Bloggers: This video, via Veggie Mom, is HI-larious. And our New Bloggy Friend, Lead from the Start, is featuring The Muppets for the Fourth. Check 'em out!

I'm glad you shared the picture since I have not seen it before. We are just hanging out at the house for the 4th as I am not a big fan of fireworks. By the way, I did make the blueberry pie, and we all loved it. Thanks for the link to Veggie Mom and Aunt Julie's recipe.
