Our Banner is not Waving

You're a grand old flag,
A high flying flag
And forever in peace may you wave.
-- George M. Cohan

I'm going to buy a new flag pole and hang our American flag today. So the quote above means a lot to me because I need my flag to fly in peace in our neighborhood. I discovered last night that someone stole our cute Spring-y flag and the pole it flew on. I put it out Memorial Day weekend (it was out last Spring, too) and now it is gone. Apparently it has been gone for a few weeks and I didn't notice until I went to switch it out with our American flag.

What kind of jerk steals a flag off someone's porch? Probably a drunk one. And probably a drunk one I angered at some point since our new neighbors moved in down the street (three 19-year-old boys) and started having parties. I've had words with a few of their guests who stumble loudly down our street in the wee hours of the morning ... it was probably one of them who decided they needed our flag and flagpole.

Hopefully they will not feel the need to steal an American flag. Who would do that? We shall see.

  1. Um, you could always get a metal flag pole and put a *slight* electric charge on it...just sayin'.
