This fall as I was sending my kids out to the school bus in the dark hours of the morning, I felt  compelled to snap this photo of my neighbors flag –as seen from my front porch.  It seems they leave it up in all weather, day , night sleet, rain, snow (yeah I KNOW). Anyway as the rain came down and the flag was waving in the wind, I was struck by how the streetlight lit it up against the darkness of the sky and the rain glistened and sparkled as it fell.

Than a month or 2 ago as I was thinking of all the people who are down on our country  and who take for granted the freedoms which our forefathers fought, bled and died — as well as our brave soldiers today who continue to do so,  I thought of a slogan: “Every day this flag flies free is Memorial Day and Veterans Day to me!”   the past several weeks I have been thinking,  “EVERY day this flag flies free is Independence Day to me!” is also appropriate.

So, I got on and posted both slogans along with this photo on cards , shirts, bumper stickers, stickers, magnets, buttons, postcards, mouse pads, purses and just about every other item they have for sale. My favorite is the card that says “EVERY day this flag flies free is Independence Day to me!” on the upper flap–and on the lower it says,”Happy Independence Day!” I think it would be great to send any day of the year, why wait till the 4th of July!
