Okay, here's the deal: June 14. For those of you who are minding your p's and q's in the American heritage dept, you know that's Flag Day. For those of you who don't... Flag Day is when Betsy Ross is supposed to have finished the first Old Glory with the thirteen Stars and Bars. So, now America displays her flags proudly on that day, to say, "Hey look at this. Pretty cool, eh?" Anyway, this year it falls on a Friday, and, as I was filling out a calendar, I thought, hmmm, that's an excuse for a barbeque or party. So I want you guys to start making a big deal out of FD, because damn it, we should be proud of our country and celebrate it. You can do anything: raise your flag and invite a few friends over for drinks. or a barbeque. or dinner. Anything all the way to as big as a block party. Gimme some input and tell me if your communities do anything for this day, and if they do... what? Thanks. Hope you had a good Memorial Day as well.
