Happy Flag Day

Lucy T. Beagle has something to say.

She's all down with the general concept of honoring our nation, its' heroes, its' fallen, its' grand history. Believe me, Lucy celebrates independence.

While she, like the rest of us, often questions the furtive motives and actions of our current misguided and mostly evil administration, Lucy sees that the hopes and ideals of our country are quite admirable, usually. Unless manipulated in the wrong hands. Lucy is quite a patriotic little beagle.

However, she's been wondering today why, oh why, is so much planning, traveling, partying, and celebrating
done on the dreaded 4th of July?

Lucy's just fine with a good bbq, some folks getting together, having some PBR or some Country Time lemonade, and tossing an occasional burger or brat her way. (Don't get her started on tofu dogs.

But people. The fireworks!! What the fuck is up with that?

For this reason, Lucy would like to remind you all about FLAG DAY. A nice, quiet, celebration of one of the most beloved traditions and symbols of our nation.

Have a happy, quiet, FLAG day, fly your stars & stripes, hell... fly your Kansas state flag, your Jayhawk flag, your Rainbow flag. Fly your freak flag, people.

Just get your flag on today, save your fireworks money for beer and new shoes instead... or my little Beagle may get all Betsey Ross up in your ass.
