Patriotism and Apples!

Sep 17th

Good Morning and a Happy Tuesday to you!  Today we are patriotic and we celebrate both the Constitution and Citizenship.  Join me for these very important celebrations and we’ll finish up with delicious yumminess!

Citizenship Day – Today we celebrate being a citizen of the United States of America.  No matter what issues we face, no matter who is plotting and working hard to destroy her, this is still the greatest country the world has ever seen.  Our great country is something every single American should be proud of.  This country stands for freedom, a beacon of hope, promise and success!  Today is a special day for all citizens, whether native born or citizens by choice,  to be proud to be an American, and to appreciate being a citizen of this country and all of the rights and freedoms that it brings.  Never take these rights, freedoms and privileges for granted, for the moment we do, is when they could be snatched out from under us. To each and every American citizen, Happy Citizenship Day!

Constitution Day – On September 17th, 1787 the Constitutional Congress held its final meeting to sign the Constitution of the United States of America.  This document was painstakingly labored over to create the most perfect document in the history of our nation.  After the meeting there was still so much to do! The individual states had to meet and vote on it.  The U.S. Constitution did  not go into effect until two years later on March 4, 1789.  Our forefathers are very likely rolling over in their graves these days.  They worked so hard to draft a document that would protect the people from big government, putting a plan in place to check would-be dictators from taking over, or taking advantage of the people.  And yet look what is going on right now, and those who don’t follow the basic principles on which our country is based are getting away with it.  We must stop them.  We must stand up, vote an entirely new group of people into office, and keep nobody who is destroying our country today to lead it tomorrow.

Food Celebration of the Day

National Apple Dumpling Day  – Mix together one part nostalgia, one part pastry dough and one part apple, and you have a sweet treat that will bring you back to the olden days.  You too can become a member of the Apple Dumpling Gang and celebrate this tasty fall treat today!  Do you remember that old movie “The Apple Dumpling Gang” with Tim Conway and Don Knotts?  Such a funny movie!!!  Ah memories.

 

Ok, now I have a real wish to watch that movie!  I don’t know if I’ll be able to stop thinking about it until I do! Unless I can find it somewhere, I’ll have to do without.  I’ll celebrate being a citizen of the greatest nation on earth! God Bless You and I’ll see you tomorrow!
