Our Red, White And Blue

Once again this week, I’m participating in Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop. The prompt I chose for this week (appropriately) is:

3.) Show us your red, white and blue!

So with a little footnote*, here are our Fourth of July decorations. We’ve had these “column flags” for a couple of years, and display them for Memorial Day, July 4, and Labor Day.

*You may have heard about a Fourth of July “visitor”, possibly heading in our direction this evening and tomorrow. His name is Arthur.

And because of him, I’m holding off on putting up my “column flags” for the Fourth. We could certainly use a little rain, but we’d rather Arthur check any strong winds and subsequent damage at the door.

The latest reports say that the Outer Banks, two hours travel time from us, will possibly bear the brunt of the storm.

And, once again, I’m pulling out our map of Virginia, for those of you not from ’round here.  As you watch the hurricane updates/tracks/guesses, you’ll know just how close it’s coming to our area.

So stay tuned. We’re battening down the hatches, and hoping Arthur makes a sharp right turn…soon.
