As we look forward to celebrating this last week in July, let us count our blessings and give thanks for this great country of ours. Let us also remember our servicemen and women scattered all over the world who are fighting to keep it free ... and safe ... and always and forever, America, the Beautiful.
The word lagniappe, as defined by Webster's, means "something given or obtained gratuitously, or by way of good measure."
"Time never turns backwards
Its old charms to give,
In photographs only
Can yesterdays live."
