The chorus of one of my favorite songs: " God Bless America, Land that I love, Stand beside her and Guide her through the night with the light from above,  From the mountains to the Prairies, to the Oceans white with foam.  God Bless America, My Home sweet home."   Irving Berlin  1940's

Mules. Described by Google as "the sterile offspring of a female horse and a male donkey, valued as a work animal, having strong muscles, a body shaped like a horse, and donkey like long ears, small feet, and sure footedness." Described by me as " a fabulous pair of slip-on shoes that you can wear all day no matter how hard you shop". Much smaller and much more comfortable than the "real thing."
