Keep An Eye On That Potato Salad



You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.


-- Erma Bombeck




Have a wonderful Fourth of July!!

  2. I plan to eat a french fry, inside a hot dog, inside a hamburger, inside a fried chicken, inside a goat-cheese drizzled duck, inside a chocolate-dipped turkey, inside a lemon meringue four foot cake! Then off to the vomitorium.
