Flag Day

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Thursday, June 14, 2007

Totally forgot today is
FLAG DAY...

Our normal post is just below...

I am lucky enough to have Grandpa Marini's Flag. The one his coffin was draped with before his burial. It is in my living room, folded.... I know they make those holders, but I like it out so I can turn it around and see both sides...I put it in my front window on Memorial Day and will do so when I get home and then again on Fourth Of July...

15 Of Your Sparks

  1. I'm sure you find comfort in the tactile experience of actually touching the flag.

  11. GAIL: That is not what I tried to do!! HUG

    KATHERINE: Yes it is special. I actually sent them a few years back when I found them...they never responded. I would be interested since one of the women pictured on their site has very similar features to my sister
