Raising a teacup from over the Pond
The light shineth in darkness and the darkness comprehendeth it not.

Make that two tea cups. Made with boiling unsalted water.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
(Psalm 68 vv1-2)

Glad to see you ladies don't hold a grudge against us ungrateful colonial rebels!  ;)

In all seriousness, happy 4th of July!

(Also, I hosed up and forgot to acknowledge Canada Day a couple of days ago [1 July], so happy belated Canada Day to our Canadian members!  Mea culpa!)
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Our independence day was like the day a teenager breaks away from home with a loud bang, to go off on his/her own. That didn't  mean he/she didn't want to visit the old home stead from time to time.
I think now that we are in our aging years, it would be good for us to revisit old family ties.

Happy Family Day.

Tis summer BBQ day, make ice cream day, and hold your dog safe in your lap day!

May every one enjoy, and stay safe and sane.

Cats too.  Some cats are pretty spooked by the noise of fireworks.

Carys seems less afraid/startled and more annoyed.  Her general demeanor when there's any loud noise (fireworks, thunder, etc.) is more, "I didn't authorize this much noise!" than "I'm going to hide until the noise is over."

Happy Fourth, and again, I forgot about Canada Day on Sunday (although I did mention it when I posted Sunday's chat log), so happy belated Canada Day to Jerusha and our other Canadians!  :D

Happy Fourth of July, and a belated Happy Canada day is just fine with me!   :)
