In the words of Erma Bombeck…”flies die from happiness” on the 4th of July

The 4th of July is a time to be with family and friends and get outside and play.  Take a bike ride, a swim, or toss a ball.  Let’s be real, this probably isn’t going to be the day when your eating is going to be 100% healthy. 

In the words of the late Erma Bombeck:   You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness.  You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.

Have a happy and safe 4th of July everyone!
