First, that featured photo is one of my favorite flag photos, it was taken in the middle of no where while on vacation. We were in Colorado in the fall a few years ago.
But back to my community and flags.... I really always as the wife and daughter of Veterans... appreciate when I see someone flying the American flag and showing respect to it as well. And it's not a lot of businesses that are flying flags these days. I wouldn't ever want another September 11, 2001 kind of event, but the good thing I saw come out of that day was Americans came together against a common enemy and came out in full force for our country.
But I will go out of my way to support businesses who fly an American flag. I will spend more to shop at a business that displays the American flag. This big ole' Glory flies at a local truck stop that is at the corner of two US highways 441 and 129. It's about mid way between my house and my mom's house too so I drive by there a lot. Their gas isn't as cheap as the folks across the street.... but they don't fly a flag or get my business. That's just how I roll.
