All we have of freedom, all we use or know -This our fathers bought for us long and long ago.~Rudyard Kipling, The Old Issue, 1899It was a beautiful day to celebrate Memorial Day at The Lazy Vegan...and to finally get an American flag to wave! The foreman had the great idea the other day of getting a flag, and when I drove through town today and saw all the flags out I stopped at the hardware store to buy one. We spent the day working at home- (actually, after I post this we'll be heading off to a friend's house...so it hasn't all been about labor!) the foreman did a lot of painting, taking a break only for lunch and to put up the flag! Happy Memorial Day...may all the troops everywhere come home soon & may all wars end for good!
Toby likes the flag!
I think it looks great against a white house. DUH! Just like THE White House!
I put the flag part together and then the foreman did the hard part.
Now we have a permanent "home" for the flag for all the various holidays.
Bravo supervises from the kitchen window...which means he's up on the kitchen table!
Of course I bought a flag for the donkey barn, too!
Weegie seemed the most impressed by it.
He was very curious!
I had it up high enough so the donkeys couldn't nibble on it, which would not be proper!
The boys like anything that blows in the wind!
