Happy Fourth

Happy Fourth of July Everyone!

I like to see a man proud of the place in which he lives. I like to see a man live so that his place will be proud of him. ~Abraham Lincoln

This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave. ~Elmer Davis

Yet America is a poem in our eyes; its ample geography dazzles the imagination, and it will not wait long for metres. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson, "The Poet," Essays, Second Series, 1844

This, then, is the state of the union: free and restless, growing and full of hope. So it was in the beginning. So it shall always be, while God is willing, and we are strong enough to keep the faith. ~Lyndon B. Johnson

Star-spangled happiness
and banner waves of pride.
~Cherishe Archer

Happy 4th to you as well! Are those your pies? They look yummy.
I love your quotes. Have a great and fun day.

Hi Alisa :)
Yes, aren't they pretty? I like them because they are EASY. I used refrigerated pie dough and canned fruit (don't tell).

I'm impressed. They are beautiful.
