US Independence Day

I wish all of my regular US-based blog readers a happy and safe Independence Day holiday.


For once I will use an expression that usually grates when I hear it, but which on this occasion is absolutely bang on the nail:

HAVE A NICE DAY!

    That's two sets of congratulations I need to send then; one to the US and one to your daughter, Sarah!

    Happy Birthday to both!

  6. Thank you, Bob,

    But why did you forget to wish those of us in the Dominion of Canada a "Happy Canada Day" (July 1) on Friday?

    We still have the Queen as our head of state after all.

  7. Don M,

    English Common Law; something that our European neighbours seem not to understand, thanks to Napoleon and his Legal Code!

    I was unaware of it's role in the Independence of the United States until you mentioned it.

    All the best,

    Bob

  8. Bluebear Jeff,

    Please accept my belated congratulations on Canada Day; I hope that all my Canadian (and Canada-based) blog readers had a great day.

    Somehow I managed to miss the reminder in my Filofax diary, which is a rather poor excuse but the truth.

    All the best,

    Bob
