100 things I Love About the USA

Uncle Skip did a “100 things I love about the USA” post, and I thought it was a great way to honor the 4th of July, since my kids are too young (debatably) to stay up late enough to watch the fireworks… Not that they’ll get anything outta this post for many years to come, IF ever… but hey, it makes me feel like less of a deadbeat for not taking to the fireworks.

01. Our women don’t have to wear veils over their faces, even the ones who should…
02. Our bacon isn’t ham.
03. CRAFT BEER! LOTS AND LOTS OF CRAFT BEER!
04. KENTUCKY straight bourbon.
05. AMERICAN Football!
06. Baseball.
07. Dunkin Donuts on every freakin corner, and a KFC every couple miles.
08. You can drink the water. (though it’s usually yucky…).
09. Top notch medical care, whether we want it or not..

47. The United States Military, and all those who protect my freedom.
48. The EMTs who save lives every day.
49. The Emergency room staff and top notch surgeons who save our lives.
50. Mt. Rushmore.
51. Yosemite.
52. Old Faithful.
53. The Berkshires.

55. Uh…

Ok, so this is kinda difficult, I can see why Uncle Skip’s post was 100 things I love… etc…

I feel like things are going to start getting a little more arbitrary as I go… Had I started this some days ago, I’d have had a better time with it, I think, but I’m really tired, and I want to finish for the 4th… We’ll have to leave it for the time being at 55…

Suggestions welcomed!
