Spoke's motto from his time in Vietnam: IMPROVISE
That's what we did today.
I gave Spoke a new flag last Veteran's Day. It was time to respectfully retire our current one and the flagpole needed a fresh coat of paint. So we stored that red, white, and blue beauty away until spring; now we can't find it.
It's okay, it will show up. I don't feel less sincere, honoring all those brave men and women who gave their lives (their lives!) to protect me, with this miniature tribute.
A little flag maybe, but a whole, whole, whole lot of thanks.
