One Fine Afternoon

The pink sky is showing,
The wind is blowing,
the flag is dancing with the wind
The photographer started clicking.
I've waited, and waited, and waited...
Finally, the flag opened up and showed   her majesty.
Seeing a flag flying high always reminds me of those unsung heroes who  gave their lives to protect us from enemies.  Thanks to them, we are enjoying the freedom.

I love seeing the great pictures that people take! I am a new follower from the blog hop and I am following you thru GFC. I cannot follow thru FB right now and its a long story so please check out my post dated August 20th on the Weekend Blog Hops. As soon as they take care of it I can follow. I will leave it up to you if you want to follow me now or wait until I can follow you first. Either way I understand. Follow what you can and I will be happy! Thanks so much and have a great day!
