It was July 4, 1976…

She slept late. But eventually she rolled out of bed.

The sun poured in through the high window and she sat naked in the kitchen, her skin smooth.

She had never spent much time thinking about clothes, wasn’t sure that red, white and blue did much for her coloring, but it was the Bicentennial, and there was a party, and she was going, come what may.

She slipped into her gown. Zipped it up. It clung to her curves.

If it got hot later, well, she could always take it off. No one would mind.

She knew she was a tasty thing.

    I had that great 4th of July cover for YEARS! I wonder where it is now? I still have your creamy white crocheted basket. I recall those July 4ths under the grape arbor at Wallingford.
    Big love to you,
