Hello Muffy, I thought I might contribute to the collection of readers' flag displays. One photo was taken a long time ago (mid 1960s). My parents erected a flagpole on our lawn and here is the first flag raising. I'm carefully hauling it up and my Mom and our beloved dog Fluff are in attendance. Picture by my father.

...The other one I took of the front of my house... last July.  Loving your blog as always!

Flag at the cottage. Happy Birthday America!
