As I celebrate my Birthday Tomorrow. I am proud to say I share this day with a grand old lady!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO
OUR GRAND FLAG.
SHE FLIES PROUDLY AND IS HONORED BY ALL!!
On June 14, 1777,
in order to establish an official flag for the new nation, the Continental Congress passed the first Flag Act: "Resolved, That the flag of the United States be made of thirteen stripes, alternate red and white; that the union be thirteen.
Your flag and my flag,
And how it flies today
In your land and my land
And half a world away!
Rose-red and blood-red
The stripes forever gleam;
Snow-white and soul-white -
The good forefathers' dream;
Sky-blue and true-blue, with stars to gleam aright -
The gloried guidon of the day, a shelter through the night.
~Wilbur D. Nesbit, Your Flag and My Flag
I can’t wait to be able to serve my guest with some wonderful sweet tea or lemonade.
Tonight I will celebrate with parents and my Big Jim as the daughter is a sponsor at church camp and the son can’t make it home tonight.
But I have decorated holiday tree, breakfast room, dining room and deck are all decked out with Old Glory.
(OK every area I possibly can).
I am going to show you a few photos today and in a later post I will give more details.
