Flag Day

Flag Day is celebrated on June 14 in the United States. The date commemorates the adoption of the flag of the United States by the Second Continental Congress on June 14, 1777. The flag was called the Flag Resolution of 1777 and was the first of many iterations of what would become the American flag we recognize today.

The following photos were taken out and about:  Dallas, Texas – Great Falls, Montana – Las Vegas, and Los Angeles and right around the corner in my little town of Canby.

 

4th of July from the road

I am writing this post as we travel down the highway.  I guess I have Red White and Blue on the mind; I am seeing it everywhere today!

As you know, I have been on the road the last week with my Trucker Hubby. It’s been an eye opening view of his world.  I have even more admiration and respect for those that serve us daily on the open road, keeping America working.

“It’s likely a trucker who brought you your food, clothes, and your bed…a sailor on a concrete sea.” Johnny Cash

The next time you pass a trucker on the road, remember that you may be on vacation, out on your way home from work, but he is AT WORK….bringing us everything that we take for granted everyday.
