Flag Day

June 14th commemorates the 1777 decision to adopt the official flag of the USA; therefore, the featured photos probably resemble scenes you already have seen in numerous settings throughout the day.   Be sure to salute Old Glory as she waves in the wind.

In addition to the observance of our flag, today I also want to pay tribute to two wonderful men.   First, I honor the memory of my late paternal grandfather as June 14th was his birthday. Although he is greatly missed, I cherish the many memories that so often make me smile.   And, secondly, another special individual celebrating a birthday today is a former US History professor who always challenged his students to read, write AND remember!   To each, my thanks.
