FLAGS AND GIN

Greetings from the ancestral home,  for a week to visit mom,  and aunt and uncle,  where we will have a small picnic today, and finally have a celebratory anniversary for them. I will make my famous Deviled Eggs . A different Fourth this year for sure, and no huge crowds for me. But rest assure....I have my gin and a good cigar!!! Some Nicky Doll helps too.

And remember,  as Abe Lincoln said  "America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves."  All the more reason to vote. Also we can be patriotic for our country, she deserves it, but our GOVERNMENT must earn it!

Hope a wonderful weekend is in store everybody-
….and for those of us in the States...
Happy Fourth of July!
XOXO

    We're also having a mini-celebration at Casa Bob y Carlos, with a handful of people and social distancing and, for me, tequila.

  11. ...another amazing post ...and on many levels!
    - Images are spectacular....bursts of color so appropriate for the occasion...(and so environmentally sound!)
    - Love deviled eggs....what a treat!!! I don’t generally stock gin - though gin tonic is probably my favorite mixed drink - but will raise a glass of a rich Zinfandel to you at the appropriate hour...
    - Most importantly, you provided a most appropriate reference to Lincoln - and the imperative to act - to keep this day one of celebration for hard fought for ideals! We have much work to do to ensure the clear threat from within forewarned by Lincoln is soundly defeated so we call all thrive as one...and the immediacy of voting is high on the list!!
    Excellent post, Maddie... my glass is raised to you and all who gather here!

    1. So glad you enjoyed it and thank you for you kind comment. One of the secrets to my deviled eggs is I use a good British mustard and a dash of Worcestershire sauce, mayo, pinch of pepper and rosemary...then dust mighty with fresh dill.

  20. I wonder if we will ever see a great President like Lincoln again?

    Loving the flowers and colored glass vases.

  21. Glad you had an intimate Family gathering to Celebrate the 4th. Lincoln was spot on, in fact, most great civilizations fell from within. Famous Deviled Eggs... I'm salivating, I Love me some good Deviled Eggs or Deviled Anything. *smiles* Except for the illegal fireworks going up all Night the organized Shows were cancelled last minute... we drove around watching what was in the air with no particular destination since nobody advertises the illegal displays they'll send up. *LOL* Of coarse, they sell all of it and then tell people not to use it, AS IF!
