One of my fave family pics

Just don't see this every day since we are a Florida Family
through and through.
Enjoyed visiting Wisconsin though!

STILL HERE!

I've been busy celebrating birthdays and planning get togethers and painting bathrooms. Life is full and very good. So thankful for the amazing friends in my life and my family. Mr. Wonderful put together a nice gathering for me on my special day. We are loving the new grill!

Take a moment and say THANK YOU for all that you have, all that you are...

AMERICAN or something else?

Talked to a friend today about how we are way too segmented as a country. He believes we are all American and referenced the following from Teddy Roosevelt.
Theodore Roosevelt on Immigrants and being an AMERICAN

"In the first place we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the man's becoming in very fact an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag, and this excludes the red flag, which symbolizes all wars against liberty and civilization, just as much as it excludes any foreign flag of a nation to which we are hostile...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Theodore Roosevelt 1907
