Flag Day

Momma said today is Flag Day. Do you know what that means? She explained it to me. Flag Day is celebrated in the United States on June 14th. It commemorates (isn’t that a long word!) the adoption of the flag of the United States, which happened on that day in 1777 by resolution of the Second Continental Congress.

Do you know which president of the United States proclaimed June 14th as the official Flag Day? It was President Woodrow Wilson in 1916. In August 1949, National Flag Day was established by an Act of Congress.

Flag Day is not an official federal holiday. But on June 14, 1937, Pennsylvania became the first (and only) U.S. state to celebrate Flag Day as a state holiday, beginning in the town of Rennerdale.

Travels in the South

Hello friends – welcome to another week of Travels in the South.  Now we all know that mom is trying to do right – trying to live a healthier life. She believes in the 90-10 system.  90% of the time she eats right while the other 10% of the time she has what she wants – within reason.  Well this past weekend, mom was craving a hamburger… which is weird because that’s something she doesn’t usually crave.  So her and dad went to a local burger joint.  And mom did good.  She really did… okay for the most part – remember 90-10 system – snorts with piggy laughter.

So what did mom eat?  This is typical of things she orders when her and dad go out.  This is called a Buffalo Wingman’s Burger.  What makes it that?  It has a blackened beef patty, pimento cheese spread, spicy pickles, red onions, a spicy mayo made with Chipotle pepper sauce and then topped with two buffalo wings – oh and mom got it bunless with a side salad.  See what I’m talking about on 90-10 system?  Sounds delicious and mom said it tasted even better.
