America is beer on a hot summer day
America is: yellow beer + blue water = green beer.
(Very America, but for a different holiday…)
America is: face stuffing
The hot dog eating winner (Gus) took the crown by consuming 8 foot long hot dogs with a minimum of “excessive bun debris.”
America is: people who put their hands in the air to catch any free thing flung at them
Even when it’s a T-shirt with a picture of this guy…
American is: free “airbrush tattoos” composed of glue and glittter
America is: singularly compelling signs
I believe this deep fried twinkie (definitely a “thing”) is part of a long running quest that began in Scotland over a decade ago.
What’s more America than deep frying a twinkie and topping it with whipped cream AND powdered sugar?? Nothing. That’s what.
Anticipation in lawn chairs. Very America.
And the moon rose over an open field…
All this America? I’ll take it. Any day.
Happy 4th, ya’ll!
Nice post! Love the sign. Love the twinkie. Love the song. If you’re in Phx, say hi to Noelle for me!
Hey Eric… yep…she sure is! We are having a great time…although I will never (!) ever again eat a fried twinkie. Bleh! Wish you were here with us… hope you can visit sometime or maybe I can sneak down to Tucson. Let’s go see roller derby or something.
never ever? really? c’mon!!
Love love love the pic of you two. Very cute and a great blog. Glad you had a good fourth.
we had a great time! I wish we lived closer…
