Hi Maria, I don't know how I missed your last post--things have been busy here with kids coming and going and all of their friends too! I am so happy to see that post. I was going to include it in my dog post a few days ago but put in the US map instead. I did just read the Declaration a few days ago and noticed all the grievances against King G., but no mention of right to arms at all! That is reserved for the amendments to the Constitution. I have read that many times--had to in law school! I don't know why it isn't required reading for ALL politicians. But did you see the survey recently--40 % of those surveyed did not know what year why declared our independence or from which country!!!!!!! Yikes!! On a happier note, I love your little patriotic display! Linda
