This has nothing to do with my dear Mustang, Beautiful, but a little over a week ago, my mom and sister and I met in Waitsburg, WA for lunch and a bit of shopping. (Yes, there is shopping in Waitsburg).
Next to this quaint little building with a cat lounging at the cash register, no less--
(BTW--thumbs up on the cat at the register, Waitsburg--LOVE it!)
Here's the "quaint" building:
There was this--
Prompting me to ask the painters of the flag what it was going to be. "What do you think it should be?" Was their reply. Hmmmm...I thought. Good question. A bar? I dunno. Bye.
But then, today, traversing the Internet looking for information on the "Farm Sale" that will transpire this weekend in Waitsburg (just a heads up!)--I found this article, "Huge controversy over flag painting in small town". (Click to read entire, hilarious article).
Apparently, the day we arrived, Sunday, was the day the town was first introduced to this "little" flag, and the controversy that ensued was picked up by the Seattle Times. To tell you the truth, I didn't know anyone was worked up about it. I just thought, WOWZER, that's a big flag! And, I appreciate odd things, so I took a picture as we pulled away. Other than that, I would characterize Waitsburg as a sweet, sleepy, old-fashioned town--kind of like stepping back in time--ohhhh---sixty or so years. (And, I mean that as a compliment).
What do you think? Does this desecrate the flag? Destroy the investment ($600,000) in the downtown? Or, on the other hand, is it a sight-worth-seeing?
