Happy 4th of July !

Just wanted to wish my fellow countrymen and women on the forum a very happy fourth of July! a.k.a. "happily divorced from Great Britain day".

Too bad it's not really BBQ weather...

Re: Happy 4th of July !

2015 Bump.


Happy 4th of July to everyone that recognizes the God given miracle that this day brought to the world.


You are welcome!


Out
-------------------------------------


I am joking here so just chill with the groans, OK? (even if it is a bitch slap of truth.)


No really! JK!


I know this post is technically one day premature, but my compatriots at home have today off and I am here in the office sweating my b___s off because the AC is set to some retarded 7 deg delta ambient setting so no one catches the plague or something. The heat has me a little prickly today and I am really not motivated to work, so I thought I would start the celebration early.


So Happy 4th to all my US colleagues here in CH. I hope your celebrations and BBQ's tomorrow are happy and relatively cool.



Shout out to my Canadian friends also - happy belated Canada Day. One of my best memories is from Pictou, Nova Scotia where I celebrated your Dominion Day while serving on this proud Canadian ship:



Here is a little slice of America as seen through film - F Yeah!

And to what seems the majority here on the EF, so there are no hard feelings, God Save the Queen!

Re: Happy 4th of July !

This is so sad. Hilarious, but sad. Make sure to read down to the comments section which are even funnier than the Incredibly Ignorant American 4th of July Facebook posts.

Here is to our independence, which I wish we would take much more seriously.

For starters. It means we don't have to drive on the wrong side of the road.
