MMM – Independence Day Music

For Free Vintage Graphics visit:

Over the weekend, we watched “Defiance” with Daniel Craig. This movie is based on a true story of how a group of Jews survived in a forest in Germany during WWII.  The evil Nazi empire murdered hundreds of thousands of Jews. To see a peek into the past of how some fought their way through the impossible crushing regime was incredible. I was deeply touched.  I am not Jewish but you don’t have to be to appreciate the Jews’ determination and self-preservation at all cost.

America, the land of the brave and the home of the free would surely be under another country’s thumb if our forefathers had not risen up to claim this nation for which it stands.  We must always be reminded of the great liberty we have in the USA and never forget history does repeat itself.  Crush liberalism(a.k.a. socialism/communism) and fight for conservatism!

Did I sound like I was on my soap box? If I did, I make no apologies for it. I do love this country and I dare say, you do, too!  It’s with great pleasure, that I bring to you this week’s MMM theme chooses, which are military/patriotic or a Broadway musical.  Guess which I picked?

Here’s my honored dedication to America and those who keep her safe!

God bless America!




Thank you to all the American soldiers for the sacrifice you make for me, my family, and the entire United States of America!

PhotobucketThanks to the Head Conductor, XmasDolly for hosting the Love Train each week, but let’s not forget to send thanks also to our Co-Conductors:  Lorie, Larry, Callie, and Stacy



Thanks for coming by and let me say, I’m proud to be 100% American!




I born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of southern WV. I was a child bride when I married my high school sweetheart in 1979. We moved to Knoxville, TN to begin our life. Determined to prove nay-Sayers from our community wrong, I completed my education and went on to earn an A.S. in computer programming. From 1983-1987, I worked as a computer system’s manager. That’s a glorified title for someone who trouble shoots and maintains system back-ups. After the birth of our first child in 1988, I took early retirement. What have I been doing for the last 25+ years? I am proud to say, I am a SAHM and for most of those years I home-schooled our three children from K-12. Now, the nest is empty.

    What terrific picks, I have never heard that one by John Wayne, but it is beautiful. I love the other two songs, especially the Toby Keith song – I sent that one to my son when he was in Afghanistan.
    Enjoy the rest of the week.

    LOVE your picks, and I can’t begin to tell you how much my mother loved loved John Wayne!  He was her idol!  She probably heard your video I’m sure.  Thanks for reminding me of a wonderful memory.  My mom passed in 2006 along with my best friend and MIL also that year.  I miss them both terribly.  Thanks for making me smile!  hugsssssssssss
