I’m embarrassed to admit it took scrolling through Instagram to see that today is flag day



I don’t even have a flag pole anymore – it was affixed to a tree limb that bit the dust. No excuse though. I should (a) have known today is Flag Day and (b) erected another flag post. Shame on me. 

Who has a flag up today?

  1. I didn’t know it either….but (by coincidence? Fate?) we just recited the Declaration of Independence as part of our respectfulness training at the breakfast table. Funny how those things work, I was reaching for Shakespeare (we rotate things to keep from stagnating), my son groaned and rolled his eyes, so I went for Honesty, but pulled out respect and it fell open to that page with the Declaration of Independence! Our cooking this month (which arrived yesterday) zalso has instructions for the boys to bake a flag cake. Alas, we do not have a flag pole, and we would have to have two 🇺🇸 🇸🇪

      1. I’m not even sure how the holiday was named and by whom. Thanks for the link. And of course, fingers and toes crossed for two easy closings. Be thinking of a new moniker.

  2. We have a flag up most days during the year but I did not know until now that today is actually a reason to have the flag out. Our homeowners association is very particular of where and how the flag is flown and we feel lucky that out HOA even allows flags – many communities don’t as it opens the door to interpretation of “flag”.
