Independence Day

SDP  7-4-11
The SDP staff is back...and just in time to celebrate the nation's 235th birthday! (Insert noisemaker sound here.) While many people will be enjoying parades, picnics and fireworks throughout the U.S. today, Uncle Sam Manatee will be keeping an eye on this mailbox (in festive attire) until mail delivery resumes tomorrow.

Nice post...much more fun than mine! Welcome back. It's nice to take a break, though!

Oh, SRQ,
I missed you!
I need my fix,
from your daily pix!
Welcome back!

We were just in Tampa and, along the riverwalk, near the convention center is a 'watch out for manatees" sign, but alas, we did not see any.

Glad to see you're back!

Only in Florida might we see such a mailbox, guarded by a manatee! Hope that you are doing well and good to see you back.

I'm off to wave my sparkler!

Bises,
Genie

Pretty cute, SRQ. Happy Fourth. It will be good to see your staff's work again when the team gets the release to start up.
