Memorial Pride

If tomorrow all the cakes were gone
I'd posted on this blog
And I had to start again
With just this patriotic dog:

I’d thank my lucky stars,


to be livin' here today.


‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom,

and they can’t take that awaaaaay.


And I’m proud to be an American,

where we're free to be wrecky!

And I wont forget the ones who died,

who gave that right to me.

And I gladly stand UP,
next to you and defend her still today!


'Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this laaaand,


God bless the U-S-A!




Thanks to Holly F., Dara M., Michael H., Claire Marie, Carolann K., Erica B., Kelley B., Pam L., & Rachel P. for the reminder.


*For you pesky optimists suggesting that the USU cookie cake stands for something else: it was found at a big box store alongside other patriotic cakes two days before Memorial Day, 2011. So... yeah, no. -john (thoJ)
