Card-a-Copia: It's the Fourth Again...UGH!

"Fortunately" for everyone, the Fourth of July is on a Wednesday this year; meaning that it's possible to celebrate the weekend BEFORE the official holiday or the weekend  AFTER the official holiday.  Great fun.  Really.

Bianca, who is recovering from her hip surgery, goes ballistic with all the loud noises and can't be comforted into quiet.  The only reprieve comes at night when I have the fan on and she snuggles under the covers.
Let it be over soon!
And if the noise bothers Bianca, her barking REALLY sets off the newest member of the house, Ragamuffin...Muffin, for short.  It  was a big adoption day at the rescue facility and this little girl, about one year old, just snuggled into my neck when I picked her up.  What was I going to do?  Leave her there?

I can't imagine anyone letting her go, even through she has absolutely NO manners and runs and jumps all the time - she literally bounds across the backyard when she's excited.

Here's this year's patriotic card.  I'm not embarrassed to admit that I totally love it.  It is, of course, going to reach the recipients well after the holiday, but I think they'll still appreciate it.
