Today it was only 93F (34C) in Pocahontas so I decided it was a good day for an outside project. The flags I added to the front of the Lesmeister all have a reason for being there, and they really dress the place up. Left to right, they are…
- Belgium, because my family hosted a Belgian exchange student while I was a freshman in college, and he’s still like a member of the family.
- France, because they used to own this land, before we bought it from Napoleon as part of the Louisiana Purchase in 1803.
- Arkansas, obviously because that’s our state.
- United States of America, again for obvious reasons.
- Lesmeister Guesthouse Logo flag.
- Spain, because they owned this land before Napoleon took it away from them.
- Sweden, because my family hosted 2 Swedish exchange students in the 1990’s who are like sons to me.
