I guess it's a "Spring Cleaning" kind of thang.
I was at the County Historical Museum doing my Do-Si-Docent duty this afternoon. The museum is located in the Historic Courthouse on the Square. When I went outside to warm up [the museum temp is about 65 degrees] I noticed a worker putting up new flags. Truthfully, I hadn't noticed the old ones being worn, but they were a little dingy. We've been in a 50 year drought for the last several years. Rainfall is woefully low and so there's a lot of dust no matter which way the wind's blowing.
It fills me with a sense of pride to look up and see bright, clean flags. See, I AM easy to please!
Now, if they'd just get the pigeon poop off the steps...
