Happy Independence Day!

Here's a happy fourth of July! We are heading out soon to watch a riverfront concert and see some fireworks. It will be hot, but hopefully not too bad down near the river.

In honor of our nation's birthday, I have a question for my fellow bloggers. Who is your favorite founding father? I would have to say James Madison. He was instrumental in having the Constitution take the shape it did, including the Bill of Rights. Obviously it wasn't perfect then and that's why we've needed 17 amendments since then, but it has stood the test of time pretty well.

Last night DH and I were watching a story about the Revolution on the History channel. I left to read after a while and past our normal bedtime he comes in the room and says that the colonists won the war and Washington became president. LOL. I was thinking, were you doubting the outcome of that? It was funny that he wanted to see the end even though of course he knew what happened.


  1. I will probably sound silly for asking, but was Lincoln considered a founding father? If so, he would be my favorite.

  2. We watched the same show on the history channel and were totally riveted! I would have to say Jefferson, but I might be partly influenced by his architectural achievements!
