Proud to be an American

Memorial Day got me thinking about something my cousin Monica said.

She was visiting from Bologna, Italy and she said that she was surprised that so many people had American flags hanging outside their homes.

In Italy, this is not done (except when Italy wins the World Cup :)

Made me proud to be an American and to see Betsy Ross's creation flying high.image

I must say, this is one of the things I really do admire about the USA, your willingness to share / show your patriotism (hope that's the right word)! Over here if you have the Union Jack or George Cross on display people would most likely think your in the BNP, which sucks!

Hope you had a great weekend.

Am proud to see flags waving every day. I have a tall pole a dear friend made for me shortly before he passed away and I love having my flag out and flying any day I can.

Right now I have to restring it as the roping snapped a few weeks ago but am picking up more cording this week end and it will again be flying my countries flag. I so missed it flying on Memorial Day this year but we had just gotten back from vacation and I did not get it fixed.

God Bless America.
