We’ve been missing in action most of the day because we were at the Charlottesville Tea Party. After the speeches there was a march on Rep. Periello’s office, and then we went to a restaurant and drank a few beers with the Libertarians (or rather, I did — Dymphna had coffee). So we just now got home.
The weather was horrible: rainy, windy, and very cold. Even so, there was a good turnout at the Pavilion — about 1,500 people bundled up against the cold, most carrying signs and/or wearing tea party paraphernalia. There were families with children, young people, middle-aged people, and geezers like me.
We made our own sign for the occasion, and it was the only one of its kind. Both of us took photos, and I’ll try to post some of them tomorrow.
Care for some tea?
