Freedom and Justice for All

american flag


I Pledge allegiance to the flag

of the United States of America

And to the Republic

for which it stands

one nation – indivisible

with Liberty and Justice



Happy 4th of July America!

Today the people of the United States of America celebrate their Independence Day. The day  they became their own country.  Freedom is important. The Foundation so many things grow on.

Lisa, in her Time Out For Art (Series, each Thursday) of Playmart – Zeebra Designs illustrates well the importance of the “foundation of things” when it comes to a work of art. The sketch, the first drawing of a piece of art, is the foundation from which the beauty of the finished product will emerge. And equally important is the loving and nurturing (of her talent with art) that she shares and encourages with others. A Foundation of Love! Just excellent!

Thank you,

~ Penny

  1. Hope you had a great 4th, Penny! We had a great one, pancake breakfast at the fire dept, 4th of July parade, bbq later and fireworks! Jogging today! lol Have a great weekend and love your drawing!

    • Hi Robyn, thank you! I hope your 4th was the best and that it was spent with family members having fun. Finally cooled down here so watching the fireworks last night with the family ended the day of activities perfectly! xoxo

      • Thanks Penny ~ it was a nice peaceful day – picnic on the beach for dinner (cold lemon chicken and salad)… Lots of fireworks here (resort beach community) ~ so a colorful sky it was! Glad yours was lovely – and cool … much Love to you and yours x RL

      I didn’t copy or paste anything, hmm how
      odd 😦

      that you are enjoying your 4th of july celebrations

      • Anything with wicked in is lots of fun too, well seeing as I am probably the only one in the UK that says that word these days 🙂 I used to say far out too, I think it is possibly Back to the Future syndrome on the latter 🙂

        I am pleased that your 4th of july
        was a nice day and evening Penny 🙂

        • I agree with you Andro! 🙂 Not to worry re: word usage, everything from yesterday seems to recycle right back through again. So I’m sure you’re just ahead of the game! Have a wonderful evening my friend!!!! 🙂 xo

          • It is almost midnight here so I am late to call into my Space and I won’t be on here long either as I am going to be watching Van Helsing later 🙂 Well I always like a few sharpened fangs to kick-start the weekend 🙂 Actually I might watch Dracula too 🙂

            • Hi Andron. You know, I’m not a fan of the dark side at all and yet, the dreams I have had (vividly real ones) through most of my adult life, I could probably write a book about. Actually I’ve written one piece but not published it, as it is so not “me” lol! 🙂 Enjoy your night and your space, I find I enjoy you, very much, my dear friend! 🙂 xo

              • My Space is a bit of a mix these days but my previous one was horror through and through indeed, I have many darker scripts than what I add here but I understand that not everyone enjoys it, and I have had emails sent to me in the past asking me not to add anything too distressing, I never realised that I had as these scripts are all mild, but some of my alternatives are graphic in detail and it is those that I would never add here, I mean they are just horror based, nothing too horrible within the lines but just a little too gory is what I am trying to say 🙂

                I am pleased that you like calling into my realm, it’s a long time since I have used that word, my last WordPress home page was ‘Welcome to My Gothic Realm’ and I had lots of photographs and pictures, all of which that I really liked but hey that was then…

                This Space that I have now isn’t a patch on my last one but it’s better than nothing I guess 🙂

                Wow an epic reply, sorry about that one 😦

                Have fun Penny, I value
                your friendship my sweet friend 🙂

                Andro xxx

                  • I have just added my script and now I am leaving for the evening, do have a really exciting time bothe tonight and over the weekend Penny 🙂 🙂

                • I was so busy rattling on about myself that I completely forgot to mention about your script, I think that it is nice to be able to write in all genres but then not everything that we write is for our Spaces so that is okay I think 🙂

                  Have a wonderful evening 🙂 🙂

                  • Hi Andro. been offline a bit so playing catch up here. I hope you are sleeping like a baby right now (a happy contented one)! Yes I agree with you about “our space”! 🙂 xx

    • A late happy 4th Roxi. Mine pretty much centered around the kids! Which was cool, busy and fun … did I mention busy … Hope your today is a good one for you dearest friend of mine, and that you are doing well! xoxo

Thank you for your thoughts!
