I've flown a flag on my porch ever since 9/11. I used to hang a seasonal / decorative flag, but switched to the American flag on 9/12/2001.
Once the trees were cleaned up in the yard, I got motivated again to work around the yard today to finish the storm damage repairs. The wind pulled the 3 two inch screws right out of the flag pole bracket. Today, I decided to move the bracket to the other side of the front steps, moved it up as high as it could go and re-mounted on the porch pergola using 3 inch screws. It will be trickier for me to take down to change flags, but that's only twice a year & maybe Mother Nature will leave it alone
Old glory flying higher & prouder.
Dad would have liked that.
