From Coast to Coast 'Ole Glory" is Proudly Waving

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

Thank you Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho and Endre Barath, Jr. for hosting the June Active Rain challenge "Ole Glory coast to coast" What a great idea! I’m having fun reading posts from across the country and now visual all the flags waving!

I never thought about it but June is bookended with two very patriotic Holidays:  Memorial Day and July 4th, with Flag Day being in the middle, on June 14th. 

My header is a photo of a flag from neighbors, who are also friends, just down the street. I always marvel at how they make sure to decorate and display their patriotism proudly!

Many on my street do the same and some line their sidewalk with flags.


I always display my flag proudly.


I firmly believe: “Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it. It flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it.” …  Unknown

Hi Dorie - that's what we do line up flags along the front yard as well as display the big flag.  I love it when other neighbors join in the festivities of Flag displays.  Many do in my area.

Good morning, Dorie... love the photos. I always have my house decorated inside and out with flag themed items beginning just before Memorial Day weekend and through the Independence Day holiday.

You are most welcome Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho . Its a great challenge and has made me really look around to who is displaying Ole Glory. Some places I'm disappointment they are not showing their patriotism!

Dorie Dillard Austin TX - Good neighbors are always welcoming. I can appreciate people like them and you of course too! I was especially touched by that last quote from the unknown author. It really is something worth pondering and remembering. 

May you have a great day.
