Okay, I’ve been a bum this Independence Day Weekend, gorging on sausage dogs, sunscreen, red plaid shorts and Lee Greenwood. But seriously it’s time to get serious. So here are my Five Friday Happy Bringers and my Sunday Morning Quote all rolled into one.
“We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal; and they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”

Yes! We have the RIGHT to pursue HAPPINESS! Here are five pursuing reasons why I am:
1. Dancing at my age (sorta past 30). And having a friend (?) use a silly app to document said dancing.

3. Grand-dog sitting Spyro.
4. Fireworks. (Sometimes, beauty really is its own excuse for being.)
(The Landings Club, Savannah GA … and the golf cart I decorated/drove to the fireworks/cookout:
5. Grandsons Gabriel and Daniel in the sand.
