Our daughter and her husband wanted a flag pole for their ranch. As a Christmas gift, we gave them a 25' pole and recently, since the weather was decent, the guys erected the pole in front of their house.
One evening we gathered in the early evening to celebrate the honor and history of our nation by raising the flag.
Neighbors were invited; we had 'poppers' and patriotic music. Our SIL even wore a special shirt for the occasion.
And when night fell, the flags waved bravely! We are proud to be Americans and Texans! and Appreciate those who died to give us freedom!
