I can't thank you enough for the "FYI"'s mentioned in your note. It was very helpful and I do appreciate the heads-up. I will attend to those enlightenments
I can't even begin to express how excited I was to see the flag down. Bravo! I am sorry you had to take the initiative to do that, but I am very, very thankful. I had tried 3x's over the winter, but couldn't make it budge. I thought with warmer weather and WD-40, I would eventually get it out. The flag bothered me as well being so tattered. My father was a Lt. col. and pilot in the U.S. Air Force. He did search and rescue in the Pacific during World War II, so I was brought up very patriotic and with great respect for the flag and all it stands for.
Thank you for being my guests. It was a pleasure to host you and do come back.
