One size fits all, the Flag
Automobile’s of Art:
Alert... Refrig report..... still smells bad! :-(
But for tonight:
I took a break from worrying with this frig and finished installing a ceiling fan on the screened in porch of the ‘guest house’.
Day before yesterday I ordered a new flag of the USA and Sherry a pair of Vionic walking shoes. They were delivered today! I am always concerned about ordering shoes or clothes, we all know that sizes vary a bit with manufacturers. But the shoes fit, SO DID THE FLAG. BUT then, “One size fits all.” It is the country it represents that counts.
From a child during WWII, I have loved to see the stars and stripes flying. I have always respected the ensign of our country and hurt down inside when I see it mistreated. That flag represents the greatest country in the world.
Together Sherry and I have visited over 26 countries. I loved seeing them and respect their culture, but NONE called to me, “Hey Jack, you should live here!” I am sure many of those countries had citizens that felt the same about their country. But this is me and MY country.
Sherry and I were talking today about this country. I have not ‘liked’ every president and administration in my 79 years, but I respected the offices. This country is strong and able to outlive and survive any president and administration that holds office.
Our forefathers who put together the constitution did a beautiful and wonderful job. Shucks I voted for Jimmy Carter (and about lost my business, remember 24% interest rates?). I even backed Ross Perot, which was silly, he did not have a chance.
This country allows me to express myself, even if I am less than smart at times! You will not see me out throwing rocks and burning buildings. I know this ship of state will right itself. I might not like the outcome, but I will love this country.
