Down in Leesburg, Va. (where I used to have my business) they have a three flag rule. Put up a forth and you *will* get a letter...

Also on the serious side, back 'round 1980 after retirib from my job as a social worker, I went to work at Dominion Chevrolet in Richmond, Va. in their service deperatment. Well, the owner got this idea that he would sell more cars if he had a bigger flag so he purchased the largest flag that he could find. It was like 30 feet long and 18 or so feet high... Well, it wasn't up more than an hour before someone complained about the size of it. Go figure? Wouldn'
t happen these days, that's fir sure...

BTW, when ever the wind came up they'd have to draft the tow rucker driver, who happened to weigh in at about 250 pounds, to get the danged think down. I remember one afternoon that he was out on call and by the time he got back that flag was carryin' on something fierce and he somehow got hold of one corner of it, held on fir dear life and had himself a fine ol' ride as that flag picked him up like he was nuthin' but a hot air baloon... Now that was sight to see... Sho nuff was...

Opps... Sorry about the drift...

BTW, I ain't go no flags on my ol' Toyota and no "God Bless America" bumper stickers either. I do have a variety of Green Party stickers. Do they count fir anything? Ya' reckon I might get arrested?

And, BTW, part 2... No wise crack comments about the Green Party stickers being responsible for the current administration being in power. Heck, if they had had to steal a few more million votes, they would have...
