Independence Day, 2010
Today is Independence Day in the United States, so I've gathered together a group of Old Glory stamps plus a few other symbols -- the Statue of Liberty, the Liberty Bell, a dove of peace, Paul Revere -- to celebrate. Hats off to the land of the free (unless you count the facial recognition software in every parking lot and the scanning devices in airports that show every wrinkle under a person's clothes) and the home of the brave. And a toast to my grandson, Bradley, in the Navy stationed in Hawaii, and my nephew, Jon, in the Navy and stationed in Virginia with his bride, Nicole.
