You're A Grand Old Flag . . .

What a beautiful sight . . .



In the United States, Flag Day is celebrated on June 14. It commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened that day by resolution of the Second Continental Congress in 1777.


The Pledge of Allegiance
I Pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

I am so glad it's flag day!!
We put out our flag every day, and take it in every night. It has been raining the past few day and so we haven't been able to do that. Today is going to be sunny, and so our flag will go out!!
Yea for the U.S.A.!!!!

And many thanks to our service men who are protecting our freedom. Saw a piece on dateline last night. Richard Engle was at the front lines of battle and let me tell you it was very intense. Sometimes I forget they are still fighting and not just protroling.

Hi Carol, I was sorry that we had rain all day on the 14th, so couldn't put the flag out. But thanks for your post marking the day for us!!:)
