Thank you Teresa, you Chevy Girl. That '53 Chevy brings back memories. Thanks Carol, that will teach you to be 1st to comment on a photo in a contest. One of the few times I've entered a photo in the monthly theme contest. If Independence Day isn't a celebration then I just don't know what is. I not only honor our independence from Great Britain, I reflect on those who have fought for, and to, sustain our independence. #10300395
