241 Years and Counting - Happy Birthday, U.S.A.

Twelve score and one year ago our forefathers brought forth a new country...it's our Nation's BIRTHDAY!!

What a magnificent work that Thomas Jefferson penned ... it's our "birth certificate" - see the text here. 

And the Trumbull painting of the presentation of the Declaration to the Continental Congress...

Thank you, gentlemen. From the bottom of my heart, thank you. Freedom and liberty are so precious. May our leaders be wise enough to preserve it, and may our citizens be brave enough to defend it.

For the Seaver folks in Chula Vista, today will be a day of rest. Randy will work on genealogy research and his database, and Linda will go to the YMCA to swim, and watch game shows and tennis on television.  For dinner, there is the Padres/Indians game on TV. We will go down to the church after dinner for the fireworks display at 8:30 p.m. over the Country Club grounds - less than a quarter mile away. Big booms.
