|I found it quite amusing that he had the pirate flag flying, as his house was being re roofed. It was like it had been taken under mutiny!|
I can't believe, when I took this photo a few weeks ago, that this may be the last time I see a flag flown from the Mt. Gambier road flagpole.
Mr Harkness has been flying flags everyday for the last six years. It seems like he's been doing it forever. Such a shame that flag thieves have caused him to reconsider flying flags, from his extensive collection.
Driving this stretch of road just won't be the same, without glancing up and seeing which flag is flying this week. Most of the time, I have no idea what the flag represents or which country it belongs to. I do know I am going to miss seeing them, and I know that surely I am not the only one that found enjoyment in seeing the flags flown beside his house.
|These two were taken in July last year. I'd been meaning to put the flagpole in a 'My place in time' for ages. Finally got round to it. Shame is isn't in better circumstances. I do hope those flags keep flying.|
