Blue Monday - Proud to Be American

It's Blue Monday! To participate:

1. Post about something blue on your blog. It can be pretty, ugly, funny, old, or new as long as it's blue. Leave a link to this blog on your post.

2. Place the Blue Monday button on the top of your post so that people can easily spot it. Place another Blue Monday button on the sidebar of your blog.

3. Mr. Linky will be up after midnight. Return here and link in with Mr. Linky by leaving your name and the Permalink to your post. To create a Permalink, click on your Blue Monday post title and copy all the stuff in the http window. It is a longer address so that people can find your post even later in the week--whenever they get a chance to visit.

4. Leave me a comment. I promise that I will visit you and leave you a comment. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links. Make someone's day; leave a comment.


With the 4th of July coming up, I thought that I'd spotlight the BLUE of our flag. I wish a happy and safe 4th celebration for everyone.

Happy Blue Monday and happy 4th of July! Did I link correctly this time? I've always had to guess how to link, I'm not computer literate and regular linking instructions don't make sense to me. If I linked incorrectly this time, could you please tell how to do it, I appreciated you helping last time, but I really would like to know how to do things correctly myself. Thank you, Mary :O)

Beautiful post and most appropriate for this week! :) Mine is similar!

Boy, this event is growing like crazy! :) Thanks for hosting it! ~hugs, Rhonda

Barbara H. said...

Great photos for the 4th! I especially like that last one.

Re your comment about my book review being so detailed one needn't read the book -- that's not my intent at all. There's much, much more to the book than my one page, and I hope to encourage people to read. I did tell a little more of the "story" this last time because it originally appeared in our ladies' ministry newsletter, but usually I try not to give too much away.

Ashley said...

Hi Sally, Thanks for having Blue Mondays. What a neat way to meet new blogland friends. Have a wonderful week. Love, Ashley

Betsy Banks Adams said...

Perfect post for "BLUE" Monday... Happy 4th to you. I am proud to be an American also.
