They put the flags out

Today would have been my dad's 77th birthday. His birthday was on Flag Day. We lived the first 11 years of my life in Washington, DC, and of course all the government buildings would hang their flags on June 14th. I'm pretty sure it's probably the only city that actually err...celebrates? okay, recognizes Flag Day. My dad would always say, "Hey look! They put the flags out for my birthday!" Yeah Dad, they sure did. Happy Birthday.

Similarly, my grandfather's birthday is July 4th so every year he comments how the fireworks are to celebrate his birthday. We humor him as you did your dad. It's a great story to pass on, and it shares that your dad had a sense of humor. Truly special in all aspects.

Happy Birthday Dad. :)
