Mama was very patriotic, and one of the duties she was proudest of was repairing the edges of the flag that flew above the White House.
Actually, two flags were used at the mansion -- a small one on rainy days, and a big one on bright days.
The wool would become frazzled around the edges from blowing in the wind, and Mama would mend it.
She would often go up on the roof to see the attendant take down the flag in the evening.
She used to tell me, `` When I stand there and look at the flag blowing this way and that way, I have the wonderful, safe feeling that Americans are protected no matter which way the wind blows ''.
