Honoring Ole Glory
For Father's Day weekend, I treated my husband Rick, my son Ricky, and his son Tristan to a few days at the Marriott Timeshares at Desert Ridge in Phoenix/Scottsdale area. We haven't had any time off this year so this was a real treat for all of us.
I was very surprised to see how Ole Glory stood out in this portico (above). The light was shining on it proudly and we had to stop to get a photo.
On Father's Day, we were able to spend time at the Desert Ridge Resort. Tristan loves the "Lazy River" so we had to take advantage of that. On the way back to the car, this image just stood out. I personally love our "State 48" flag, and when it is flying next to Ole Glory, I always pause and take it in. The double row of Palms just adds to the beauty of the flags.
Tristan had his fill riding the innertubes on the Lazy River. The image below was on our way to Roy's in the resort for a wonderful Father's Day meal.

The next three images are the way I decorate my cottage with red, white, and blue.
This bottom image is some red, white, and blue in the backyard garden. I am all set for the 4th of July!
We wouldn't be able to celebrate our flag and all these wonderful holidays if it wasn't for the Heroes who came before us. I always remember that. It is the reason I respect our flag and take so much pride in it.
God Bless America... Land of the FREE and Home of the BRAVE
Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it. It flies with the last breath of each soldier who died protecting it. - Unknown
