lookit this...

...and enjoy the music. I am really a patriotic sap. Love to put on my flag-waving colors and celebrate federal holidays, with parades, marching bands, John Philip Sousa music: the ring tone for the phone in my pocket is "Stars and Stripes Forever."

Someone forwarded this video to me. I knew as soon as I opened it, the song would end in a patriotic wash of tears. It is likely the favorite of a daughter, who played it so often when it first came out we thought we might have to destroy the little cassette tape it was on. We all survived, and over time the novelty wore off, long after we had all committed the words into our permanent memory banks.
