I glanced out the window and noticed that the rotary club has come by and put out the flags in everyones yard so I went in and told H I wanted to show her something. I sat her up on the side of the bed so she could see out of the window and she started blubbering, “OOOOOH, it’s so BEAUTIFUL!”. She is SO emotional. I mean she could only see our flag from where she was sitting, so tomorrow I will wheel her, (a bit unwillingly, probably), outside and let her see the whole street lined with 10′ high flagpoles all proudly waving large, brand new, American flags and stand back, cause the waterworks will be on!

Well – I’m glad your rotary club is DOING something. I mean – so many people don’t even know what Memorial Day is for . . and hell, as a spouse of somebody currently serving in Iraq, that’s sad to me.
But I don’t know that I want H to cry over it . . . that seems a bit . . . melodramatic.

H’s problem is deep-seated depression. She cries over EVERYTHING. Good, bad or indifferent.
I am thrilled that they are doing it, too. And happy to report that every single house on our street participated except one. And they have a for sale sign in their yard, so I guess I can’t blame them for not wanting to part with the $50.00 charge for the service since they don’t plan on being here.
They will show up 5 times this year and put out the flag and take it back in after 3 days.
God. I hope she doesn’t flip out tomorrow when she sees all the flags on the street….
