    1995 Sept. 11

    Was the date written on the certificate in an envelope in the box of the 3x5 flag I bought yesterday.

    I called my friend who manages the thrift shop and told her I needed a flag for my bike. She live across the street so she had it at her house when I got home. The Flag had flown over the Nations Capital on that date. That's cool now it will be used on Patriot Guard rides to Arlington National.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    Are you familiar with the Capitol Flag Program? It is run by the US government and employs people whose job is to raise and lower a flag every 30 seconds on short poles behind the Capitol for US Senators and Representatives to hand out as favors to their constituents. We spend hundreds of thousands of dollars a year so these flags can find their way into thrift stores I guess. I remember seeing a TV blurb about it fifteen or twenty years ago.

    I received one of these flown on the day of my retirement from the USAF. No thrift shop for mine.
