My Alphabe-Thursday -- "G" -- Things in a Row -- Two Questions --
."G" is for Great: I am writing this on the 4th of July, U.S. Independence Day (breaking off from English rule) and will write about things being Great with me.
First off is our Great-grandchild, Elle. She is a year and a half old. This picture was taken when the kids and Grandkids had a Father's Day dinner for me. My other Great-grandchild could not attend.
Next is my great-niece, Mandi here with her husband, Kris and soon to be Great-Great-niece.
The picture was taken at her baby shower. As usual she received a lot of presents as the function was well attended.
The presents are shown below.
For things in a Row this Thursday, the shower gifts and the displays of baby garments at the store are my offering.
4. Flew our American Flag for the holiday;

And now for my Thursday Two Questions: (See Thursday Two Questions by Self Sagacity for more reading. You could also make your own by checking in at this link.)
Last week 's post was about produce, shopping and your eating favorites. The responses were very interesting.
My Two Questions for this week:
1. What are some of the 'Greats' in your life or week or day?
I hope that I answered this fairly well in my blog for this week. At least all that you can tolerate for this reading.
2. How do you celebrate national holidays in your country?
Ditto from above for the celebrations. For sure we try to remember to fly our American flag for each national holiday.
Bonus Question: Did you fly your American flag for Flag Day on July 4th this year?
All for now, cheers.
Looks like you had a lovely parade and getting to drive in it too! Whoo-hoo!!
Yes, our American flag was flying today and on Flag Day! I try to be as patriotic as I can!
The baby garments make great things in a row.
We didn't make it to the parade today but we did have a great barbeque with some friends. The rest of the day we relaxed then watched the fireworks. It was all great!
Yep, there were flags on our house and all over our neighborhood.
This is exhaustively treated! Great! Meticulously done and very well scripted. Obviously you and Mrs Jim have had a wonderful time playing host and enjoying all the fun. Say, what are you playing at? The highest I had been was 18 and that was years ago.I'm struggling in the 20s now! Madness! Thanks for sharing!
Too bad about the watermelon; it's hard to choose a sweet one. I love Trader Joe's; hope that bad melon won't detour you from going back there!
1. I celebrate my wonderful life and my family and friends every day of the year. Not just on holidays.
2. We don't really celebrate Independence day. We were on our boat (still are) because our dog can't take fireworks. It's quiet here because everyone else is out of the slip. Little Bit had a great 4th without the stress of fireworks, so no bay cruise for us.
Bonus Question. Yes the flag was flying all day long. Not at home, but at the boat. If we put it up at home no one is there to take it down when night comes.
Have a terrific day Jim. :)
Hope you had a *g*reat July 4th!
We celebrated with some American expats here in S Spain - *g*reat fireworks!
Have a *g*reat weekend too.
Thanks for visiting my blog / me visiting back via Alphabet Thursday which I just discovered a week ago but is GGGGGGGGGGGGGGreat! :)
The best and greatest thing that's happened in my life was meeting and marrying my beautiful wife...I'm a romantic at heart. I enjoyed reading your fun post. Thanks for sharing, Jim.
Goddess Of Fantasy
I love your beautiful great granddaughter and you have a big beautiful family there.
Let's see = what is great in my life - first thing that comes to mind - is God - and my bloggie friends.
Sound like you had a busy 4t of July. I did a lot this year with my SO's family too.
1) Great stuffs in my life are: my remarkable children, who are joyous to be around. My SO who is mellow and easy going. My sisters. My home. My service people that I have now. My job.
2) We serve fancy dishes and play games. We visit places we haven't been to and gather around late in the evenings for good stories.
Your family is lovely.
Elle is just adorable!
I can't believe how ginormous (not sure if that's a real word but it does start with G - ha!) that fungi is!
Thanks for being a fun guy yourself and linking up to A-T!
