Drinking lots of coffee…

…so I can stay awake to watch election returns tonight, and feeling a bit patriotic, as I already voted a week ago Friday.  Just thought I’d present a few flags of the United States of America…to get in the mood.  You may hum “America the Beautiful” as you see fit!

Flag in a flower pot, outside my building

Flag at Lake Shore Nursing and Rehab facility, across the street and also the local polling place

The lake winds have left this flag in tatters…it is only two years old!

Flag in the lobby of the Harold Washington Library in downtown Chicago’s Loop
