Fourth Of July Memories

Rain on the rooftop gets high romantic marks — it’s the pitter-patter that draws a loved one near. Tonight, near the end of a very dry June, I am mainly considering the water’s agricultural worth. I go out to check the gauge, happy to get wet, but when I come back in, I am hit by a shiver of cold. Then a memory, a Fourth of July from my past, hit me.

No Department of Defense yet to take care of the security of the country. No army to stand in the way of invasion. Why not?
