I’ve mentioned my friend Candy a few times. To sum up: she’s a happily-married mother of five, Christian, home-schooling mom in Maine (Massachusetts refugee) who also teaches adult ed, does web page design, and fends off the occasional bear. She also occasionally comments here, in her copious spare time.
On the 4th, she and the whole family trooped down to see the parade, where the kids were given American flags. The youngest boy, 4, (but he’ll be 5 in LESS THAN TWO WEEKS, he wants everyone to know) was initially delighted with his, then horribly upset.
It seems his American flag was MADE IN CHINA.
According to the lad, “all the USA flags should be made in America.”
Kiddo, next time I come over, you get to dunk me in the pool, instead of me throwing you at your brother. And Candy, whatever you’re doing with that boy, keep it up.
