The Flag - March 2006

I love the three (plus lone star) flag display. The first one reminds me of Great grandma’s place. Just to take a moment on her porch under the flag! The second reminds me of a kind of sterile middle class (state, nation, etc). With the third, it’s not the flag at all… That stairway is inviting me to climb it & overshadows all flags! I feel like ascending, gingerly, just to peak at the old mansion above. Somehow I fell I know #2449.

Yes there are two paths you can go by
but in the long run
There's still time to change the road you're on

Your head is humming and it won't go because you don't know
The piper's calling you to join him
Dear lady can't you hear the wind blow and did you know
Your stairway lies on the whispering wind

And as we wind on down the road
Our shadows taller than our souls
There walks a lady we all know
Who shines white light and wants to show
How everything still turns to gold
And if you listen very hard
The tune will come to you at last
When all are one and one is all
To be a rock and not to roll
Woe oh oh oh oh oh
And she's buying a stairway to heaven

enjoy, ron

Good morning Ron,

The lone star flag indicates that the family has one son in the military. The house belongs to Joe and Nancy whose son is in the airforce.

greetings, csb

You've got some great photos here, Clay.

Hello T.B.,

Thanks for stopping in. This blogging business beats the heck out slide projectors. I can remember working with my late colleague and friend from the early 70's Dave Hastings putting together multi-media presentations with several Kodak projectors (industrial grade, professional gear) and some fairly primitive reel to reel tape decks and rock amps. The big nightmare was the projectors, which were expensive equipment but very prone to jamming. I can remember Hastings flying off the handle when during a dry run one of these things would hang up on a slide.

I was thinking about this last night while trying to upload photos to blogger and it would time out and fail about 50% of time. The servers are not up to dealing with the explosion in blogging. Also I noticed the Evangelical TC list was down for some time and when it came back the links were corrupted, comments attached to the wrong post and so forth. Looks like it is now back to normal.

Even with these sort of problems, blogging is a good way to get your stuff out where people can see it.

greetings, csb
