Friday marks the observance of Flag Day in the United States, and I am still proud to wave Old Glory.
Flag Day is celebrated on June 14 each year to commemorate the adoption of the U.S. flag on June 14, 1777, by resolution of the Second Continental Congress.

Mothers are very special people, and I count myself blessed to be surrounded by so many wonderful ones.
Charleston, to me, is what small-town America is all about. It has a garden club, Lions club, Rotary club and lots of arts and revitalization plans going on.
