A Bit Of July 4 Trivia

Happy Independence Day to all my friends on the other side of the longest, undefended border in the world!

It's a great day of celebration unless you were one of the only two signers of the Declaration of Independence, who later served as Presidents of the United States.  In a spooky turn of fate, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson died on the very same day, July 4, 1826 AND that was the 50th anniversary of the signing of the declaration!

I personally want to thank Betsy Ross for the cool flag design I took the liberty of playing with on this lazy Susan ~ 

Because my daughter loves Brooklyn and I love you guys!

Enjoy your ballgames, BBQ's and parades.  We're waving at you from across the 49th parallel!


  1. Okay, that IS freaky... never knew that bit of trivia, thank you Maureen! I too wish all my American friends a Happy Fourth!

  2. I love your lazy Susan! That is a lot of painstaking work painting the stars and stripes. Have a great weekend! Blessings, Pamela

  4. Oh that is freaky, it's like that one about Lincoln and Kennedy that's just weird!

  5. Thanks for the history lesson. Unreal ...
    Love your Lazy Susan, but I would get dizzy watching it if someone started spinning it.
    Have a great week-end.
