Friday Flash 55......


Of the men that attended the Constitutional Congress of 1787...
Nineteen of the 74 people chosen to attend were No-Shows!
Of the 55 that DID show, only 39 signed the document.
But their bar tab was.....
132 bottles of wine
8 bottles of whiskey
8 jugs of cider....
America was born.....At Happy Hour!!!!
.
Hi everybody, if you or anyone you know has done a Flash Friday 55, come tell the G-Man. I will visit, read, enjoy, comment, then BOOK!!
ALSO...I know that July 4th celebrates the signing of the Declaration of Independence, NOT the Constitution, but this really happened. Big deal, it's still stuff about America...
Peace...!!!
.
.
.Also If I haven't already blabbed it enough, Saturday is Lisa's aka. Java Jazz's birthday..
Please go get a piece of birthday rugeluh at her place, she's an Excellent baker...
.
Everyone else...Happy 4th of July!!!!!!!!!

I loved your celebration of history, Galen. Eh? Get it? Celebration?

I'm trying something a bit different this week. It's happy, it's fun... it's a game! Go see if you can solve it.

Happy Independence Day, Galen!

I guess lawmaking is thirsty work. Not so much has changed since 1787.:)

Back then, you would have had to have been loaded to go against the entire British Empire's armed forces... I'm sure glad they did!
