WA State Democratic Party - volunteer link


The party is organizing for home work. Calling from your home to GOTV.

There are vids for training and several upcoming days scheduled for Phone banking.

I must do something to help make sure tRump is NOT re-elected. I must.

I won a prize from the Greenwood car show n cruise

A fire extinguisher! I assume for a vehicle.
Just got the call.

Saturday Sarge (my Hummer H3) and I participated in the cruise and food drive. The man that called said that we brought in over 400lbs of food and the raffle did well too. I bought two $5 chances. Woot!

Was a great cruise with stops and then people had a chance to socially distance/ mask mingle a bit and talk cars.

Imma a Chevy girl and there were plenty of beauties! Lots of mustangs too. Many international brands of all classes and even two hydro boats on trailers.

I don’t have a fire extinguisher in Sarge so will have to make room among the emerg gear.

Peace! And cars!

Sitting at a bar...

On the tiny split patio. Totally by myself.
I am in NW Seattle in the Phinney neighborhood. On the corner is a tiny building. Three things on the sign.


But the best part is the (now vintage) poster of the HOPE Obama poster. It’s faded but lovely. O. M. G.

I love sitting here and then suddenly looking over and seeing the man of the century!
My man.

Barack Obama

Ladies and gents...Tom Petty! Girl on LSD

Ha! Don’t remember hearing this before but I have been on Lake Shore Drive a time or two.

This is THE BOMB. I chose the live version. Have fun!

Edit to add: watching the concert. This was the third song in the set. A new one he said.

Mary tRump's book

Why does she have to tell it in a book?

If it’s THAT important - just tell it! Same with Bolton. This book shit has me pretty pissy about people who want to profit off misery and their selfish attitudes outta get their asses kicked!

Oh SHIT! The walrus is the bad guy!

Yep! Here’s one for John Bolton. Stupid prick. And some history on the lyrics written by John Lennon.
The idea for the Walrus came from the poem The Walrus and The Carpenter, which is from the sequel to Alice in Wonderland called Through the Looking-Glass. In his 1980 Playboy interview, Lennon said: "It never dawned on me that Lewis Carroll was commenting on the capitalist and social system. I never went into that bit about what he really meant, like people are doing with the Beatles' work. Later, I went back and looked at it and realized that the walrus was the bad guy in the story and the carpenter was the good guy. I thought, Oh, s--t, I picked the wrong guy. I should have said, 'I am the carpenter.' But that wouldn't have been the same, would it?"
