After all, why would we care that you felt willing to fight and die just to get rid of our governance over you? What is it to us that you preferred liberty over security?
As I say .... not offended at all.
Happy Independence Day, all you American-not-wanting-to-be-British-any-more ....er, friends.
Yes, today, in this corner of the United Kingdom, from which you wanted freedom (not that I'm offended or anything), we celebrated.
Mostly we ate:
These cookies were made by a real, authentic American, so they tasted extra special.
We then sang your National Anthem. Who decided on this tune, may I ask? It must have been someone with an uncommonly large singing range. Down to your boots the notes go, then up to the stars.
Phew! You could still decide to go with God Save our Queen. You know, if y'all decided you were mistaken with all that 'No taxes without representation' stuff back in the 1770s, and if you did a wee bit of apologising, maybe a little grovelling.... we'd take you back I reckon.
Just think, you could be singing our National Anthem next year. Just think how easy it'd be on y'all.
After our attempts are your anthem, we decided to head to the beach. Wait for this: we had temperatures of 21C today. Twenty-one! It was actually warmer outside in the garden than in the house. I could almost have been in America.
I think this girl was guilty of a treasonable offence.
Calum was too: he said something nasty about George III (I can't think what on earth he might have against King George III. After all, he was an okay guy, wasn't he. All he did was lose us America, and what's that between friends.)
Calum, I charge you with making derogatory comments regarding King George III, who, after all, never caused any harm to his nation.
Guilty as charged, m' lud.
This year, we signed the Declaration of Independence.
And so it's Goodbye from all of us for another year....
.... even from Jackson (who didn't seem to treat the flag with the greatest of respect, despite all my warnings).
Sshhhh. I know this is not appropriate on Independence Day, but when I asked Jackson to show a bit more respect to The Flag, he very snootily said, 'Er, remember who I am? I am Jackson. Enough said.'
I am sorry. I do try, but sometimes a dog makes up his own mind.
Happy Independence Day to you all!
