You're a grand old flag,
You're a high flying flag,
And forever in peace may you wave
You're the emblem of the land I love.
The home of the free and the brave.
Thank you, George M. Cohan for the music and thank you to millions of Americans who have lived and died to keep these words true. From Valley Forge over two hundred years ago to Fallujah in a not-so-distant past my deepest gratitude to all those who protect our flag, our selves and our republic.
I thought you all would enjoy a few pictures of the flags at Rockefeller Center. The blue umbrellas you see are set in what is the ice rink in the winter. I took these on Saturday and loved the bright sun and the waving flags.
It's been a fun weekend and I am luxuriating in having a day to catch up on things I didn't get to earlier. Bright sunny weather today, unlike yesterday's thunder storms. I see some Italian ices in my day! Hope it's a great Fourth of July all over!
