He was a Signalman for over 30 years in the US Navy...he gripes about too large a flag on too small a flagpole, leaving it up 24/7 with no light at night illuminating the Stars and Bars...not doing the half mast ceremony correctly and the wrong way the Bunting is hung...but he declares this one absolutely perfect!hugsSandiReplyDeleteRepliesReplyanthonynorth9:46 AMAh, Old Glory is almost as beautiful as my own Union Jack :-)ReplyDeleteRepliesReplystoryteller11:23 AMBeautiful reminder in troubled times.

She is a therapy dog, for the last couple of years we visit assisted living residents and leave the reading tutoring to the younger generation.It is nice that you can get your kids motivated to read and care for the books.
