Raising The Flag
We always have a flag flying in our front yard. One of the first things Charles did when we moved here was to put up a very tall flag pole!
We've had to replace our flags many times over the years.
When they became torn and tattered, several were donated to our grandson, Zach's boy scout troop! The Boy Scouts dispose of old flags in the correct way in some of their ceremonies!
With recent winds and rain our current flag which we had up had become tattered around the edges ! Charles had taken it down just recently but we had not yet replaced it!
Charles has a very fine flag but it's one he has never wanted to use much. It was given to him by a good friend who died many years ago - he's very sentimental about such things.
SOOO...we had one other choice of flags to put up today... this 48 star flag that we bought awhile back at the flea market! Oh! It's a treasure too! :)
We hoped it wouldn't rain while this flag was up, but it did! We'll take it down after tomorrow and replace it with another one in a few days.
Here are Alli and Gabbo (that's Charlie) putting up our flag today!
