Didn't stop by yesterday, but belated happy 4th. A nice shot - isn't this flag also being used by the Tea Party folks?

@Viewfinder: Is this the one they're using? I haven't seen that.

Very nice capture, Judy! (I'm now reading New York by Edward Rutherfurd. History of that biggest city in the world from the 1664 to the present. Though the fictional thread is rather thin, the historical information is fine.)
