a Question? Ask Mr. Flag Lady
is Mr. Flag Lady? What kinda name is that?
my wife and I were attending functions honoring the troops I often
overheard folks pointing us out as "the Flag Lady and her husband",
at one event I overheard a mother telling her young son "That's
the Flag Lady and Mr. Flag Lady". I liked it, and I have enjoyed
the nickname ever since. If you have any questions feel free to ask.
