A Show of Patriotism .....for Monday's Country Backroads

"O say does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave."
Lines from The Star-Spangled Banner
written by
Francis Scott Key
Recently I have received several patriotic books, to add to my home library.
Here is the book that works so well with my today's post.
Star-Spangled Story
Jane Hampton Cook
200 years of the
National Anthem.
Jane is not only an author, wife, and mother, but also a presidential historian.
Receiving her book has led me to reading her blog.
In her October 8th, 2016 post, Jane reveals she is about to undergo neurosurgery
 on the 14th of October.

  1. A very nice shot of the flag at its best, blowing in the wind.

    1. I must laugh.....because I took more than a dozen photos, just to get what I was looking for in the flag. Thanks for your comment.

  2. That's a beautiful photo, Meggie. I especially love the way you got the horse to pose so beautifully! It's always wonderful to have a fresh pile of books waiting to be read, explored and enjoyed.

    1. I thought your eye would pick out the horse in the background. We both share a love of horses. I can never have enough books to read...

  3. This is a beautiful shot of our flag.

    1. Thanks, Michelle....What caught my eye was that the flag is attached to a huge Texas Live Oak....and, of course the horse in the background. Thanks for supporting my blog with your comments.

  4. Im not a big reader these days and not much patriotic growing up a Jehovah witness they dont acknowledge the flag. Though I have always admired it.. And I love horses to. Thank you for your dear visit with me. I went to Janes blog. And wished her well for her surgery.. We never know what life will bring. Thats why I believe we need to not be in a hurry be loving and kind sharring helpful all the above.. Have a wonderful day with love Janice

    1. Thanks Janice...I'm so glad to hear you went to Jane's blog...her surgery is serious...

  5. We live in a great country and I'm so proud to be an American. I pray after this election we can heal and find our way back to being nice again. XOXO
