It’s been a year so far, hasn’t it? I am feeling patriotic but not celebratory this year. I am grateful to be here in Gloucester where I feel safe and protected by the majority of people I see in masks and socially distanced.
So, as a little distraction from COVID and to concentrate on our flag: Did you know the famous George Cohan song You’re a Grand Old Flag was the first from a musical (George Washington, Jr.) that sold over a million copies of sheet music? Don’t lie, you’re humming right now aren’t you? You’re a grand old flag, You’re a high flyin’ flag, And forever in peace may you wave.
Here are some pictures of flags from around town over the last couple of years. And, (your bonus for reading the blog) a picture of how I will be celebrating the holiday this year. Stay safe. Stay apart. Fly your flag.
