There is no question about it. I am a patriotic flag waver. I like the flag waving outside our front door. Hubby, now, is very legalistic and will not leave the flag out if it is raining or after the sun goes down. The problem is where to keep the flag when it is not outside. We decided a patio umbrella stand in the foyer solved the problem. When people come over they look a little askance at us though as if we were housing a boy scout troop or something with the flag standing in the foyer.
