Thirteen stripes ... and fifty stars.
Seeing as we live in one of the original 13 colonies and every other house has their American flag flying proudly, we were anxious to get our flag up as well. Not just because we are patriotic, but because I have a bit of a flag obsession.
Although this would have been a more appropriate flag for us to have been flying this weekend as Hurricane Irene whipped past our house.
Since hurricane season lasts through the end of November, perhaps I'll order one.
Just in case.
