Adieu Sweet Suzy

A Year Ago Today

 

We said goodbye to Suzy today. She was 15 1/2 years old. She adopted us just over six years ago. Her failing health began to impact her quality of life and it was time to bid her farewell. Now she is across the bridge romping with Tule, Freda, Opy, Charlie, Pippa, Sophie, Splash, Ivy and so many more of her friends she met over the years. We tried to give her a comfortable and loving home and she gave so much more in return. She will sorely be missed and never forgotten. Love you and miss you, Suzy. Adieu.

Happy July 2nd!!! The Real Date? Perhaps Aug 2nd, Sep 3rd or Jan 14?

Happy 2nd of July. We actually declared independence from Great Britain on the second. The notice was printed and posted on the 4th. The printers dated the notice July 4. The declaration was signed on the fourth by John Hancock and Charles Thomson to make it legal so it could be printed. The actual signing began on 2 Aug and the last delegate signed it in January 1777. Our independence was achieved 3 Sep 1783 with the Treaty of Paris (1783) but not ratified until 14 January 1784. Which date should be our true date of celebration? Certainly not the Fourth.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The American Revolution was one of my favorite subjects in Junior High but this aspect of the conflict was not covered. Glad I stumbled upon this book with my renewed interest. Found it interesting.
