Just released! Sarah and the Scary Ferris Wheel. Am I excited?
Yes indeed, I am!
Last February, on a rather cold and windy day in the Houston area, I went to Galveston to ride the Ferris Wheel. The day was way too blustery, so hubby and I had to go back a second time. The ride was fun, but no amount of needed research would put me on the roller coaster. Nope. Nuh-huh. The scary Ferris wheel was enough for me. Here's a picture on the cold, windy day. I come out sideways, but that's the way Sarah operates...well, not exactly. She's usually upside down.

British troops soon arrived to subdue the disgruntled colonists--making matters worse.
The committee included Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, John Adams, Roger Sherman and Robert R. Livingston. Jefferson, eloquent writer, wrote the original draft. Eighty-six changes later, the Continental Congress officially adopted the final version on July 4, 1776.
July 6, The Pennsylvania Evening Post published the document.
July 8, 1776, the first public readings took place in Philadelphia's Independence Square to the ringing of bells and band music.
One year later, July 4, 1777, Philadelphia marked Independence Day by adjourning Congress and celebrating with bonfires, bells and fireworks.
