Sunday Selfies ~ Flag Day Archival Style

Today is June 14th. That is the day after Pawppy's birthday...and Flag Day!
So...
Well, the weather outside is not at all conducive to putting out our flag on the veranda, its pouring and windy.
Growlmy is working, too, so she helped me sniff through my 'archives' and we decided to put up this oldie  for my Flag Day Selfie:

Picture taken in 2010


Last night there was a tornado warning while growlmy was working. She had to help move all the residents out of their rooms into the hallways. Just imagine this:
Fortyfive residents in beds, wheelchairs and all kinds of staff from the housekeeping and dietary depts. And the only view of anything nasty outside was the doorway at the end of the hall to the parking lot...anyways we could have had a pawrty there, growlmy said...just dig out some icecream from the freezer and bake a cake and enjoy the hour of confinement...gotta make the best of a bad situation:) At least other than extra work, all was fine, and God spared us from anything awful:) PTL!!



Remember: Fly your Flag!!

This Flag Day Sunday Selfie is part of a Blog Hop, Hosted by The Cat On My Head

  9. Oh Mr Freckles seems as though Flag Day is forgotten as you don't hear much about it anymore. Lee's Mom was court order into a locked ward of a nursing home for two years before her death and every day they must have been expecting that tornado because all the patients were in the halls when she and her last scot visited. I know I should not be laughing about you not getting a brother but when Lee and I went to look for a new sibling I passed the test and it was my Lee that failed. They told her she expected to much from a dog in that she told them she liked them trained and would aim it make them a reader or visiting companion dog.
    Thank for being a friend

    1. Hi, Sweet William:)

      Those locked wards are like that, growlmy has worked in rather more than a few over the years...its so sad really. Our building has locked doors to the outside, but there can be mostly free movement within the building, including some outdoor courtyards.

      Oh, dear, they didn't want the pups to become workers?? Shucks the 'therapy dog' that comes to growlmy's nursing hoe has the best of times, he loves it and all the attention too, BOL!
      And what about all the rescued pups that have become tv stars??

      Well, growlmy is from Canada, so she had to get acquainted with this Flag Day, and she thought it was intriguing. Yes its too bad that to so many its 'just another day'...
