Should auld acquaintance be forgot
Hello again, everyone. It's Flag Day again, so before I get to my point, I'd like to begin with my traditional request to post the colors with dignity. Remember that we don't fly them for each other, we fly them to honor those who made it possible for us to be flying them today. They'll appreciate it.
On a personal note, this marks the beginning of my third year as Rachy's blog-homey. Many of you also lurk over at her site, so you know she's been in and out of the hospital for the better part of last year. For my part, I can say that it's been a rather lonely internet without her around. Whether it's an intesting comment on German literature, poking fun at inane celebrity, or a report of a recent night's carousing, I've always looked forward to whatever she's had to write. I didn't always understand it, of course, but I appreciated it nonetheless. (someone told me they spoke English in Australia... but I'm not so sure)
With as much traffic as this blog gets, I'm sure word of this post will get back to Rachy in no time flat... say a month or two. So whenever it is that you do happen to drop by, Rachy - well, I was thinking of ya. Have a drink on me. I'm good for it... possibly.
