Not Afraid to Be Patriotic

Sally picked up her purse to leave and then snapped her fingers.

Oh say, can you see my flags from your window?” She craned her neck to look out of the glass.

“I’m pretty sure the Space Station can see your flags,” Lori chuckled.

Sally shrugged. “I wanted to make sure I had plenty of flags to irritate cranky Mr. Benson. Can you believe that man? I don’t even know why he lives in our country if he hates it so much.”

Lori grinned and shook her head. “You’re incorrigible.”

“Just wait,” Sally smirked, “Wally’s flying this baby overhead at exactly noon.”


They laughed.

  1. I have no idea where you found that picture, but your writing brought it to life.

    Loved the believability of this writing.

    Karen, I’m always excited when I get to your links! Your writing just grabs me!

  2. Good for you, Judie.

    America deserves so much more credit than her own citizens are giving her. She’s not perfect, but she’s pretty darn awesome.

  3. It really angers me when people who come from other countries to live in America start complaining about it. I once worked with a man from another country who came here and started a very successful business. He was complaining one day, and I flat-out told him to go back to his own country and see just how successful his business would be there. He never complained in front of me again.
