Happy Fourth of July. I hope you have a safe one, and remember the strength of our democracy is in our individual effort to remain free.
Here is a shot of my flag flying today.
Now to the Stream of Consciousness Prompt. Here is Linda Hill to explain the prompt. “Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “toss.” Use it any way you’d like. Enjoy!” If you would like to join us and enjoy as well, visit Linda’s blog and read how easy it is. Here is the link.

“Hey, Happy Fourth of July.”
“Why, thank you. Where you off to?”
“Heading to the park to toss the old football around.”
“The park is closed.”
“Yup. The county decided that people weren’t staying away from each other, so they closed the parks.”
“Okay. No problem. I’ll go to the ball diamond and toss the baseball around. Why are you looking at me like that?”
“Shoot. How about the swimming pool. I can toss the sponge around. Don’t tell me.”
“I can’t think of anything else to do until the fireworks?”
” They are canceled too. How about you just stay here for the day, and we can toss whatever you want around. I’ve got enough corn and burgers.”
“Can we toss stuff back?”
“What do you mean?”
“This twelve-pack is just begging for a couple of good ole boys to toss back a few.”
“I’d say we have the makings of a great day. Let me put those on ice and get the football.”
“You are the best.”
“Happy Fourth of July, my friend.”
“Happy Fourth, now toss me a shiny one before you go.”
