Getting ready for the 4th of July. This is for you Clint

This music is old. I hate to say very old because that would date me and I'm younger than you think. But for music printed on a mimeograph it's really very old! When my son learned this song in Primary he was a little person and he sang every word with gusto, ableit incorrectly. His favorite line was 'The rivers run from mountain peaks.....' But he always sang it 'The rivers run from mountain pigs........' He wanted to know why the rivers didn't like those mountain pigs. I played the piano for the Primay and I'd laugh so hard I couldn't keep my fingers on the keys.

Your turn to enjoy a couple of the songs we love to sing for the 4th of July celebration.

My flag, my flag is a good song for flag day which passed a few weeks ago. I got engaged on flag day so I still hang my flag and celebrate but I notice no one even knows what it is any longer. How very sad! It's just a flag but it stands for our country which is everything!

Have a good and safe holiday week-end and be thankful you have such a wonderful county.

Smiles
