I couldn't find it....

My plan today was for a post about 9/11.

Soon after 9/11, we planted a small flag in our front yard, under our majestic maple tree.

There it stayed for a couple of weeks.

Then I took it down, took the stick off, and gently folded it up and put it into a zip lock bag with a note explaining where it was, when and why.

My plan was to put it out today, in the same spot, and photograph it for my blog.

I can't find it.

I know I have it, as over the years I have come across it in my travels. But today.....I couldn't find it.  

So, no photo.

I watched the memorial this morning.

Oh yeah, I remember every minute of that day. I think we all have a 'photo' in our minds that we can pull up.

I don't need a photo.

God Bless America.

So true. But I have to chuckle a little that you can't find the flag. I'm always putting things in safe places and then am unable to find them when I want them!

The flag is "hidden" very safe. I know this-because I have several there too!

We all have those "senior" moments. Sigh. I certainly have photos of 10 years seared into my brain. I will never forget.

God Bless America. Amen.
