As we approach our July 4th holiday,
I decided that I needed to be more
patriotic than ever.
All because a few weeks ago I watched
a program where they asked folks on the streets
of New York City questions about our flag.
These were some of the questions,
along with the answers that were given.
1. How many stars are on our flag?
13, 51, 1 and 50
correct answer is 50
2. What do the stars represent?
I dont know, the 50 colonies, the states
Correct answer is the 50 states
3. How many stripes are on our flag?
50, I don't know.
Correct answer is 13
4. What do the stripes represent?
The states, the government, the first colonies.
Correct answer is the first colonies.
I was shocked that so many folks
had no clue the answers about our flag.
All I could think is what are our forefathers
thinking about our country nowadays.
They fought to be a free nation,
and some don't even know what our flag stands for?
So very sad.
I consider this coverlet piece very patriotic.
I also decided that all of my posts for July
will be different patriotic displays.
Hopefully our forefathers are looking down
into my house and are happy.
For my Canadian friends,
I wish you all a
Happy Canada Day!
Thank you to those who sent birthday wishes to Tundra.
He is one spoiled doggie for sure!
Also Bob is still in pain with his gout,
but refuses to go to the doctor.
He can be a stubborn one.
Sometimes I just dont know about men.
Pre 4th of July Blessings To All!
