Friday Flags A Standard Bearer Close to My Heart

We took a few days off to celebrate our anniversary and went to Absecon, NJ at a resort property.

I had a free morning, and my wife graciously permitted me to play some golf. As the resort next door, Seaview was hosting a junior golf tournament, it was impossible to play there on Sunday.

I found a nearby course which not only had a championship layout, but as it was connected to a winery, it offered more than a normal course, but that's a different story.

The entry to the pro shop offed a unique display of golf and our flag.

Someone had taken a liberty with a golf mannequin, and with a little work on a staff, a most intriguing American flagpole was created. 

I appreciated it enough to take the photo and to share it in the Friday Flags post.

It looks like that standard bearer has a pretty good golf swing, haha.  I hope that you played well and enjoyed your time on the course!

Brian England   He did, and his wardrobe was turn of the last century.

I hope we will see many flags flying for the Veterans Day weekend.

Sadly, we have rainy weather in Maryland for the events scheduled for today.

Hi Ed, 

It is so nice that your wife allowed you to enjoy a day of golf.  It sounds like you had a wonderful time on your anniversary vacation getaway. 

My dad was a huge golfer.  All our vacations were at golf resorts.  One of my favorites was Torry Pines near San Diego.  Sometimes, I would drive in the cart with him.

I enjoy seeing the American Flag displayed.  Our entire highway has a flag at every light pole in town.

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400   Thank you.  I find that this series of posts has me looking for opportunities and also being disappointed that I don't see more of them in front of businesses.

Roy Kelley we had a little rain overnight, but the chill came in and started early.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE®   Our relationship evolved around my enjoyment of the game. Before we got married, she knew where I was every weekend morning and holiday Monday.

We got married on a Saturday evening so I wouldn't miss the morning round but let me know I was with her on Sunday morning.

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can!   Yes, I did and at the end of the round, the husband and wife team were very gracious, and he even thanked me for the tips I gave him.

Mark Don McInnes, Sandpoint-Idaho   I thank you for getting me started on this series and seeking out those that like the country they work in for their displays.

Hi Ed:

You've hit a hole in one with that flag photo. It's so cool, and appropriate for the setting.

Jeff Dowler, CRS   It spoke to me both for the post as well as the perfect finish to that swing. That is something I haven't had in years.

Jeff Dowler, CRS   Your comment had me working the photo collection and I came up with a photo taken maybe 45 years ago while on a golf trip to Myrte Beach, SC.
