skywatch friday

I captured this shot when I got up this morning. I liked the way the sun was lighting up the flag and silhouetting the porch against the clear blue sky. Tomorrow it will cloudy with a chance of five to eight inches of that white stuff. We were going to get together with family for a winter birthday birthday bash but cancelled because we have some family with long drives. My sister is one of those and seeing the flag this morning got me thinking about her son, he may be in that next wave of Marines going to Afghanistan. So this post is in honor of Charlie and all the other brave men and women who serve in our military.

  1. I love your photograph, so well composed. Hope you don’t get too snowed in. Looks like you’ve had quite a bit already. Thank you for stopping by my SWF and leaving your nice comments. Happy SWF and have a great weekend.

  2. I always get an extra thump or two from my old heart everytime I see Old Glory reappearing from the darkness. Great picture. Long may she wave. Thanks for letting her fly near your little piece of our great U.S.A. Pappy
