Flag Day in Small Town America by Pepper Phillips


June 14th


I had to drive to town today and the Lion’s Club placed the American Flag in telephone brackets lining the downtown streets in our small town. I took this picture in front of the District Attorney’s Office. It was remodeled several years ago and is a lovely addition to our downtown.

Seeing the flags fluttering in the breeze always makes me proud to be an American.

This special day was set aside in 1777 when the Continental Congress adopted a flag for our country.

But why do we only fly it on special occasions?  Shouldn’t we fly it every day?

The bracket on my front porch broke. But I’m buying a new one, it will be difficult to install, as I’m not allowed on ladders, but I’ll get one of the boys to install it for me, then I’m going to fly the American flag daily.

I’m proud to be an American.

The Vow by Pepper Phillips

Here is the cover for The Vow, that will be included in Weddings on Main Street, our boxed set of eleven wedding stories.

This was a difficult book to write, as it is about a breast cancer victim.

Here’s the short blurb.

The Vow by Pepper Phillips

Coming home after ten years, Ann Normand is discouraged to find nothing has changed. She’s still not wanted.

Except for Clay Couvillion. He’s a man now and he wants her to stay. Can she forget the past and open her heart or will she run again?

Since I had breast cancer in 2009, writing parts of the story brought back those memories. But deep down, it’s a book about hope and falling in love. I hope that readers will enjoy the story and let it touch their hearts like it touched mine while writing it.
