Wow. What an amazing story. Even having witnessed the final conclusion, I was biting my nails with each installment of the tale. Thank you for such a wonderful recollection of all these events leading up to the final concert. I'm so glad everything ended up working out in the end. :)

Thank you thank you for the beautiful story! Which amazingly is also true. It will take some time to digest all of last year... the mind-blowing world of nutters :D

Have to say I've been a bit down with a nasty cold since arriving from New York. Only now did I realize I sniffed the green thing at Fat Annie's, so I'm really suffering from music bacteria, flagfluenza or whatever! I feel so much better already :lol:

"After 91 concerts, 5 continents, 14 months of wandering, hundreds of hands, and something like 83,000+ miles, the Little Flag That Could has finally found a home. "

hurrah to one and all.

it's been emotional.

:? :oops: :roll: :shock: 8) :D

(and you're so on the money about the webcast shot during 'so lonely' of flaggy at "welcome to the stewart copeland show"; that cameraman needs to join the list of those who deserve a fucking medal).

This has been just just dawned on me I slept with flaggie in Pittsburgh and flaggie was in my car for most of the ride from Pitts to Philly...the "purple haze" must be lifting...

Thanks, Kellie!

Thanks, Stewart!

Thank you Kellie, for telling the story so beautifully, and for your initiative in making this all happen. I've been pleased and honored to be part of the team.
