What memories come to your mind when you think of Flag day? All the flags we can see lining the streets? The memorial flags we see at various places - gardens, the cemetary, memorial gardens?
I must confess one of the things it reminds me of is tomorrow, the 15th, was our parents'wedding anniversary. I also loved the story they would tell about the wedding itself. They were married during WW II. Dad was stationed near Sioux Falls, SD and had gotten a three day pass. As he left the base, Thursday after work, he called and told Mom he was coming. Everyone in the Cities went to work contacting people - baker, florist, minister, church, friends, family. By the time Dad got "home" (in the wee hours of the morning) everything was in place and ready.
They were married Friday night in the "family" church. Mom graduated from High School Sat. night. (I asked once - she graduated with her maiden name.) And they were back on the base Sunday night for Dad to be at work on Monday morning. A good memory I am glad they shared!!
