Independence Day – 2017

“Let the Fourth of July always be a reminder that here in this land, for the first time, it was decided that man is born with certain God-given rights; that government is only a convenience created and managed by the people, with no powers of its own except those voluntarily granted to it by the people.  We sometimes forget that great truth, and we never should.  Happy Fourth of July.” (Ronald Reagan)

Enjoy your day!

  1. You are beautiful

    1. Thank you! You’re kind…very glad you stopped by. I hope your workouts are going well. Summer mornings are nice for outdoor exercise but after about 10:00am, it’s indoors for me!

      1. I am down to 200 pounds you remember I used to be 365 I am so happy

      2. Wow…that’s amazing. You lost SO much weight. How do you feel. Are you as strong as you used to be? Do you feel more energetic?

  2. Wow Lynn 😍Very sexy physique and what a gorgeous smile as well…you are definitely a gorgeous woman inside and out…killer smile…your physique is better than a 25 to 30 year old by far…your obliques, abs, and upper body is amazingly fit and shredded…nice job on lower back and glutes👍🏾I’m working out hard…check your email and I’ll show my progress

    1. Hi Artie! I don’t know how I missed your note. I just saw your sweet words. I’m looking forward to checking in and seeing your progress. Hope you’re having a great start to your week!

  3. Excellent point. We have become a complacent society willing to be lead by those spewing from the pulpit. We consider ourselves weak and ineffective to stand up for issues and/or change. It is time we accept responsibility for the privilege our brave men and women in the military stand up for. It is our RESPONSIBILITY to ultimately leave this world in a better position for our children than we were born into.

    Hope you had a magnificent 4th! (BTW- your workout routine is “killing it!” 🙂 )

    1. Hi! Glad you stopped by. I feel that responsibility keenly. I try to pass on my appreciation for America and understanding of history to my children. I do my best to educate them in the way I feel best instead of relying on our Common Core, central planning curriculum. It’s amazing how the schools are churning out kids that have little or no appreciation for the bounty we enjoy, and for the freedoms we have that others in the world do not. They sure learn about the “evils” of America but current history teaching throws the baby out with the bathwater. The kids come out of school thinking that America is a horrible place…and they end up ashamed to be American. It’s crazy but it’s happening right under the noses of our citizens. Just like you have to take responsibility for your health, you have to take responsibility teaching your children. The outcome of k-12 education (and even college) is going to sorely disappoint if people simply rely on our public school teachers to do the job. They no longer have the leeway to actually develop their own lessons. They’ve become conduits of curriculum decided on by bureaucrats far away (who have a vested interest in creating a certain kind of citizen).

      1. I agree with you. As you know, I often express the importance of the parental role and responsibility in providing their children the opportunity to grow up healthy.

    2. Oh, and I hope you had a wonderful 4th too! I made some chicken on the grill for dinner and I nailed it. I usually try to cook it too fast and it gets dry but I just kept it on “low and slow” and I finally got it to turn out the right way. Don’t ask about the grill fire I had that one time…

  4. Thank you for posting that Lynn. We definitely forget that we the people have rights that the government try to take away. I am grateful and honored to have served this country.

    1. I’m grateful you served too. All Americans owe you a debt of gratitude. I’m sure you know veterans are my favorite type of people. I didn’t ask you before but what branch did you serve in?

  5. Have you ever had a frog in your throat and you can feel your heart in your neck! That’s how I felt when I saw your post. Just had to put that out there. You are a Roman candle…you light up the sky :-)…whew!

    1. Oh my goodness…what a lovely, kind note. Thank you. You made my day!
