It was indeed a delight to attend the May 2nd festivities of Cinco de Mayo here in Martindale. To perceive all the children on various floats go by with capacious smiles on their faces kind of made my day. All the participants in the parade are to be commended. Although there were minor glitches in the parade, I still bestow on them a “well done.”
I want to applaud Jane Latham for kind of “putting it all together.” And, she donated her property for the day to allow viewers to park on her property at no charge.
On, April 22, 2015 I stopped by United States post office in San Marcos, TX where I notice that the United States Flag that they were flying was ripped and torn. According to the Flag Code subsection 176 entitled Respect for the flag, paragraph (k) states : The flag, when it is in such condition that it is no longer a fitting emblem for display, should be destroyed in a dignified way, preferably by burning.
