Wherever you went, you were made to feel welcome and my god do they serve big portions. Never in my life have I had pancakes for breakfast, but I just couldn’t resist them whilst over there. And as for the Welch’s Grape Jelly, I would murder for that right now… I just loved the taste.
Where we stayed in San Francisco, the local Cafe owner introduced me to sourdough bread, which is a speciality of San Francisco and I loved it. No more white bread for me whilst there, I was happy munching away on the sourdough bread.
One thing I did notice over in the states the number of homes that had the Stars and Stripes Flag hanging from flagpoles in the ground or from flagpoles that are attached to the sides of the houses.
Well that gave me an idea…. well him mainly after I mentioned how I thought it was very patriotic…. the St George’s cross will be hung from our house.
Whilst in Monterey we visited the local Home Depot and found an aluminium bracket that is placed on your wall all ready to hold a flagpole. Well as soon as he touched down, he was on Amazon ordering the flag (which has arrived) and we are now awaiting delivery of the flagpole itself.
So when the delivery driver delivers that pole, come rain or shine, the following weekend we will be raising our flag…. and then probably taking it down the following week where the bloody council might object to the St. George Cross just in case it offends someone, just like they did in Radstock back in 2013.
All I hope he doesn’t go around singing Flying the Flag….
