    "Made in thu' USA" ... "it was" ... "made in thu' USA. "

    Old Glory is a touch grubby though. Road making is a bit like that. Can you see, "MADE IN USA"? Just to the right of Old Glory.

    Today, I saw a most amazing 'Old Glory'. Some here know I'm a sailor. I trained with a Skipper today, who after we had finished training, invited me for a drink at his home. In his lounge room he has an 'Old Glory' that was originally given to the passed-on media magnate (and super villain), Kerry Packer.

    The Flag has only 20 stars on Her ... just twenty. There was a small bronze plaque on the frame that protects the Flag, that says "1796 The Flag of the Line".

    I could have taken a photograph of Her. I always have a camera with me, but some-how today, I felt that taking an image of this 'Old Glory', which is called, 'The Flag of the Line' was inappropriate.

    I feel the Flag that I saw this arvo' should be in a museum, not just in a suburban lounge room. The Flag still looked good though, and showed no erosion or deterioration. She was very well conserved. Maybe next time I'll photograph Her ... maybe.

    C'ya.

    Warren.
