Re: HIST: Flags

From: RYFigge@aol.com

 That idea of marking the corners  with  irises as "flags" is not too 
far-fetched.   Back in '32 when we were married, my Dad gave us a set of AAA 
tour books when we started West on our wedding trip to my husband's home in 
Colorado.  And I remember there were directions about turning where the white 
fence ended or where a dead tree was, etc -- I'll go up in the attic when it 
gets cooler and see what other odd directions and landmarks were given.
