Friday Flags in Waterbury CT 06705

Earlie this week, I was passing through the East End of Waterbury, Zip code 06705.

I had to pause in front of a cemetery as a long procession was entering.  The flag in front of the plot was fluttering in the breeze, and once I could I pulled into a lot to walk up and take a photo.

There wasn't enough wind to make it unfurl completely but my patience was rewarded with this shot.

How appropriate if the burial was for a veteran and the angels were honoring the departed as well.

I am never too hurried to honor the flag for which I also served.

I was just thinking that before I finished reading your post, Ed... that maybe that flag was fluttering for a veteran.

Good Friday morning, Ed.

We have a sunny day in Maryland and the weather is perfect for the flags in our community.

Ed, I think you captured a pretty good photo of this flag, even though the wind wasn't cooperating as well as you would have hoped.

Ed you are right that would be a great way to honor a Veteran.

Hi Ed- the other day when we were at Kickerillo, we saw the Texas flag flying at half-staff for those killed at the outlet mall in Allen TX. And yes, the wind was blowing enough to give it a beautiful wave.

Excellent photo and the flag furling status was perfect.
