So no comments about FbL's natal day yesterday?

Not that I'm counting or anything. I just observe them as they fly by.
 
 Fuzzy doesn't hang out here much anymore.  I left a message on her wall over on Facebook.  Apparently, that's what you do these days.
 
Out of curiousity, do you by any chance have a Green Mountain Boys flag in the collection?

(I ask because there seems to be some question as to whether a flag of the current Bennington flag design was actually present or not at the battle, but the GMB flag - still used by the VT NG - is known for sure to have been at the battle.)

Perhaps next rotation - or Aug 16, in commemoration of the 235th anniversary of the battle - fly both if you have them.
 
 I do not have one.  I have found a source...

So, we'll add it to the flag locker - currently 23 and counting.
 
Nice!

I remember seeing it outside a tent when the VT NG brigade arrived in Af-stan and wondering what it was.  Luckily, on night shift on has plenty of time to google...

I wonder, if you consider the VT NG to be a 'unit,' if that might not be the oldest set of unit colors in the U.S. Army.
 
 FbL has a guy that is soaking up much of her attention these days. I met him at Shakespeare's last July. Nice guy for a former Marine. FbL's a nice girl too. He's got a prize.

She's also going to marry him on August 26th.
 
 Yes, Armando.  We've been invited, but I have a conflict I'm desperately trying to deal with.
