Celebrating the Fourth of July

It is so fun to see the how my friends and neighbors celebrate this holiday season. This photo of a red barn star reminds me of a story. Last summer we were out working in the yard one weekend and a couple looking into moving to Utah stopped and asked about the town and our neighborhood and then to my surprise they commented on how many houses had the big metal stars on their houses, garages or barns. They asked if it had anything to do with religion or a particular culture. I laughed while we are a peculiar people, the stars are used for ornamentation. They are used a lot on the local homes both inside and out. Good ideas really catch on here. LOL
