Sandpoint Realty 'Friday Flag' - September 9, 2022

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Sandpoint Realty LLC DB36113

Presently North Idaho has a few fires burning in Boundary County, of which Bonners Ferry Idaho is pretty much central to, including the County Seat.  Sandpoint Realty 'Friday Flag' shows itself off a few different ways this week.  The smoke when taking this photo was bad, but had cleared a bit with the winds having blown most of the morning. 

Sandpoint Realty Friday Flag Bonners Ferry

A past client, turned friend, purchased this home in Bonners Ferry Idaho a couple of years ago.  I have enjoyed watching the constant improvements as the months pass by.  In driving to a showing yesterday I knew I would need stop on the way back for a 'Friday Flag' photo.  This flag was put up as a special thank you to the firefighters keeping residents safe.


When Endre Barath Jr. and I hosted the June Active Rain challenge I was pleased with all the USA Flag shots, but more so I was emotionally moved by some of the stories.  


Aura Alex, an immigrant turned USA Citizen showed a passion for being part of the United States that few Natural Born Americans show.  I bring this up because this week's Flag is flown by an Immigrant turned citizen. While talking with her, while taking photos, her passion for our Country rang out loud and clear.


Having been born here I realize I do take much of our great county for granted.  Unfortunate for me to do so.  Since the June Challenge I have seen myself looking around with more grateful eyes and listening to this proud American yesterday only enhanced my sense of gratitude.  


So with 'Ole Glory' being flown, a thank you to our firefighters, and a deep passion for our United States of America I thank this Bonners Ferry Idaho resident for flying our 'Stars and Stipes'.

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho that is a very appropriate sign to accompany our proud American Flag.

I like that scene with the flag and the thank you to the firefighters.  Sacramento is experiencing a lot of smoke in the air.  It's coming from surrounding wildfires.  I don't know where we would be without firefighters.

Good morning, Mark... as an immigrant, myself, I've long believed that the most patriotic Americans are often those of us who came here from somewhere else. As for our firefighters... they are just the bravest people... we really don't thank or recognize them enough.

Excellent Friday flag post. I hope the fires are out soon, the smoke clears, and you are able to spend time with your friend again soon!

Mark, coming home from vacation, there were tons of fires and the smoke everywhere was so strong.   Thank you to our firefighters and hope they stay safe.
