The Village Life - Flag Day!


    “Have you heard about this idea of holding a Flag Day?”

    “What some kind of flag raising day ceremony is it, by which you mean we run a flag up the flagpole and salute it?”
    “I don’t think that’s a very good idea.”
    “Why not?”
    “We don’t want to draw attention to the village do we?”
    “Well you know what they say.”
    “No, what do they say?”

    “Early to bed, early to rise, no jolly good if you don’t advertise!”

    “So you suggest a village flag.”
    “A flag with the village emblem on it.”

    “A flag with the village emblem on it, and flying from the top of a flagpole!”
    “We haven’t got a flag pole!”
    “Well we’ll have to get one!”
    “Of course they could mean another type of Flag Day.”
    “If they think I’m standing on a street corner rattling a tin and handing out little paper badges they’ve got another think coming!”
    “No-one has asked you to….yet!”
    “Anyway no-one in the village has the ready cash!”
    “Well perhaps people could have their credit cards clipped, and the clippings could go in the tin.”
    “I still don’t see the point of it, what would it be in aid of?”
    “The prisoners aid society.”
    “Never heard of it…….anyway why should they benefit from such a thing and not the likes of us?”
    “Why do you say that?”
    “Well we’re just as much prisoners here as they are!”
    “That’s rich coming from you, who went on assignment to London last week.”
    “And now we’re on our way to the Town Hall to discuss having a flag day. That’s what I like, the variety of the job!”

Be seeing you
