The theme this week is Country, and while I know she had a different meaning from that which I am presenting here, I hope you enjoy it.

First the snap
Next - the set
I was originally just going to do a snap and a song, but what topic leaves itself open for a set better than this? Our name says it - we are a united set of 50 sometimes similar/often not states.
Then the song
Although in 1931 The Star Spangled Banner officially became the National Anthem of the United States, prior to that "America" was widely accepted and sung as the anthem. I went to school in the 1950's and 1960's and rather than The Star Spangled Banner, we were still singing America each morning along with the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag. (You will notice that the melody was borrowed from another country to which we used to have a connection.)
