Thanks for the Buddy pic, mark. Made my day.
We didn't put him up to it.
From my Facebook posting (which you would have known if you had ever signed on to Facebook):
"No Lie: Joyce and I are on the back porch, and Buddy dives under the futon and we hear a commotion. It's obvious to us that he's "got something" and wants to play. I get down on my hands and knees to look under there, and he's got a mini flag that must have fallen off a plant last year (we don't have those on the back porch this year). I coaxed him out from under the futon, where he wanted to play "keep away" but posed for one pic. Of all days, for him to find a flag.... :)"
