Red, White and Blue - Walmart

Bag of roasted Peanuts for a DOLLAR

As I blasted through Wal-Mart at 6:30 AM on my Saturday Shopping Trip, I noticed a LOT of Red, White and Blue..... YES! by some slim chance I had MY CAMERA in my pocket!


MadSnapper thinks! Snap these! how appropriate for the week  before the 4th of July


Current day, we celebrate Independence day with coolers full of ice and drinks.

In 1777, thirteen gunshots were fired in salute, once at morning and once again as evening fell, on July 4 in Bristol, Rhode Island. Philadelphia celebrated the first anniversary in a manner a modern American would find quite familiar: an official dinner for the Continental Congress, 

Current day, we go boating on Independence Day

In 1778, General George Washington marked July 4 with a double ration of rum for his soldiers and an artillery salute


What would you get if you crossed George Washington with cattle feed?
The Fodder of Our Country!
From Marie K., age 12, Dallas, TX




What dance was very popular in 1776?
Indepen-dance!
From Rachel, age 8, Long Beach, CA




What did one flag say to the other flag?   NOTHING, It just WAVED....Eloise, age 9, Charlottesville, VA

I'll have to take your word (and picture) for W's red, white and blue as I resolved over a decade ago not to step foot in their stores!!

Happy 4th!

Best,

Hey, I even bought red, white, and blue sprinkles for cupcakes, just because they looked so cute and fun and on the chance that the grandkids show up...

It's very fortunate that you just happened to have your camera with you. I know that rarely happens!

I like that 1777, thirteen gunshots salute, of Bristol, Rhode Island. :-)

You always make me laugh! Great colorful shots! We hope to see the fireworks up here in Maine this year ... at least from our deck we hope. Happy 4th!

You are definitely too bright and shiny at 6:30AM on a shopping spree. Good grief, I was so happy the alarm didn't have to go off at that time last Saturday.
Love the red, white and blue photos.
My brain wouldn't have been in gear to think about that and take the pictures.

Looks like you're doing some serious gearing up for July 4th, at least mentally. Me to. It will be a great day with family. Hope yours is wonderful. Thanks for stopping by and commenting on Sunset Sunday.

In a comment in my blog, you said you don't know who Tasha Tudor is. Well I can not let anyone go on, not knowing anything about Dear Tasha.

Hmmmm, I seem to have forgotten how to easily leave a click-able link, in Blogger comments. -pout- Will try to just type the link, and see if it comes out... click-able.

Dee said...

Slim chance you had your camera in your pocket...LOL

Ann said...

Wow, you had your camera on you. I'm so surprised....lol
We even do our weekly Walmart trips on the same day. I don't usually take pictures but I think I should start doing that.
Love the jokes, so cute

LC said...

Kudos for snagging the red, white and blue photo opp! And in spite of the negatives people often find about WalMart, I have to credit a precious white-haired lady who yesterday knew just where an item I was looking for was located and even went and got it for me so I wouldn't have to navigate the store's motorized scooter through narrow aisles.

Since my stroke last year, shopping can be overwhelming. Just goes to show, when you least expect it, good things can happen. It is not the first time I have encountered angels at WalMart!

Maggie Ann said...

What a fun post! You've made me smile.

Madge Bloom said...

I told my grandson the joke about the flags and he thought it was funny. I am a Wally World girl - and I was just there the last three days.
Love, sandie
