I just got a new Flag a few days ago and spent this morning making a pole for it to hang on. Once I had it finished, I put it in the yard to see how it would fare with the 30+ MPH winds we are having. I came inside to get the camera and had quite the surprise when I returned to the yard. All the tractors had gathered around the Flag, including the go-kart. I saw this as a great opportunity for a family pic. Here they are:

Now to find a POW/MIA Flag to go with it.

Kenny great shot of all the tractors and the new flag. One question though, I don't understand how you got all those tractors into that shed!

Very carefully! They stack well! LOL They usually reside in the tractor port to the left of the pic. Still a tight fit!

Thank You Kenny.

You are more than welcome, Alan! I just had to have a Flag for this Memorial Day! Most folks can't relate to this, but there is nothing better than to be on foreign soil and have our flag standing tall.

For a second there Kenny I thought "Oklahoma isn't that foreign", they even try to play football up there.. Know what you mean brother, when you're over there and look at our flag it gets to ya. Nothing's better except stepping back on land here in the USA. When that plane touched down Aug. 10, 1967 at Norton AFB I was the happiest man in the world. Thanks for flying our flag, not enough people do so. God bless our troops and veterans.

I mustered out at Ft. Lewis, WA on September 19, 1969. Glad I extended my tour over there by 2 month's to get the 'early out' when I got back. For those of you who are unaware, if you came back from 'Nam with less than 6 months active duty left, you went straight home. I only had 5 months , 3 weeks, & 5 days left.
