I know this may come as a shock to you…

To the folks driving the truck through the Fred Meyer parking lot – a big beautiful flag of the U.S. flying on the one side, and an equally big flag of the Confederacy flying on the other –

I don’t know how to break this to you, but someone’s got to do it, and I guess it might as well be me: The Civil War ended more than 150 years ago. The Confederacy lost. The slaves were freed, slavery was made illegal, and people of all races and ethnicities are now viewed as equal according to the laws of the land.

Just thought you should know. In case… you know… you didn’t.

Alrighty. Carry on then…

  1. Totally off your subject except as a personal reminder…Fred Meyer, Portland OR. 37 years ago my husband and I purchased our first “together” furniture. It was a maple table, 2 leaves, 4 chairs, 2 arm chairs, 4 barstools. The barstools are long gone, but the rest are still in use. Still have the receipt. I saw it yesterday while I was culling files. $439.75! YAY us. What a bargain.
