New facebook photo? Having a moment to myself to celebrate the Enterprise, the Federation, and all that is good.

 

As you can see, my home street is full of American flags!! Rare in America to have such pride, but on Dunhill Drive every house has had the flag up since 9/11. My house is the one with the Isuzu Rodeo w/ W04 sticker on the site. That's my mom's car. Next to it, you can see the Enterprise with darkly tinted windows.
