Saturday 9

Crazy Sam over at Saturday 9 posts 9 questions every Saturday. "Sometimes the post will have a theme, and at other times the questions will be totally unrelated. Those weeks we do "random questions," so-to-speak. We encourage you to visit other participants posts and leave a comment."

1. What is your favorite 4th of July memory?
When I was a kid we would go downtown most years and watch the big fireworks show as a family. I have very very fond memories of all those times. One time in particular we went to a different area than we normally did to watch the show and I remember it being a lot more fun. I was a teenager this year and I think it was one of the first years my little brother went and was really old enough to enjoy himself. We always had lots of fun doing things as a family. I am truly blessed with a wonderful, loving and accepting family!

2. Do you consider yourself patriotic?

3. Do you like fireworks?
Yes I LOVE them!!

4. What are your plans for this weekend?
Wow well tomorrow we are going to the neighborhood parade and picnic, the kid are so excited there is going to be a real firetruck at the picnic for them to check out!! Then it's a off to find a fireworks stand to buy some sparklers and a few other small fireworks plus a quick stop off at Walmart. Back to the house to make our Pretzels Sparklers, rest and get ready to pick up Jeremy from work.

Then it's off to Shawn and Sharon's house for our annual 4th of July celebration! The best part about this year is that our visitation with T-man fell on this weekend so he is here to join in on all the fun stuff! :) :) Sunday we are going to recuperate from all the fun we had Saturday and go swimming with some friends in the afternoon!5. Are you optimistic about the future?
YES!!!! I have to be optimistic to keep putting one foot in front of the other. lol

6. Do you think everyone should serve in the military?
I support our troops and I am very thankful for all that they do, but I think it should be a personal choice not something you have to do.

7. Would you support a constitutional ban on flag burning?

8. What end of the political spectrum are you?
I would say the very liberal side.

9. Where do you get your news?
CNN, Reuters and Yahoo
