Skip to comments.LIVE Report From Crawford (3,000 folks now and STILL COMING!)
Posted on 08/27/2005 10:02:40 AM PDT by TXBubba
Just talked to Basil on site in Crawford, Texas. Currently there are about 100 folks there helping to set up. They have not received word about the caravan arrival in Waco yet. JimRob is riding with the caravan. She thinks it might get to Crawford around 1:00 p.m.
Basil says the stage is set up, the sound system is excellent and they have hung the most beautiful banners overnighted by W04Man on the stage. A big thanks for the banners, they are much appreciated!
Someone arrived early and hung yellow ribbons everywhere.
They have an American flag that is about 50 feet by 40 feet. Children of military personnel serving in the Middle East have written notes to their parents on the stripes of this flag. A very touching thing to behold.
The HOT Chapter booth is being unloaded right now. The will sell buttons made by Angelwood to help off set costs.
Someone rented the Community Center for our use so there is access to AC. However, they also have 10 tents set up. And there is a Moonwalk for the kiddos.
To top everything else there is BBQ on the grill! Basil is the official taster and says it is great!
That is all the news I have at the moment. It is hard to get a cell phone connection to Crawford but when I hear more I will try to update everyone.
Hey El Gato it was good to see you down there
I am so disgusted with Fox News. Emailed many folks over there yesterday, and they still didn't cover it live. Only hope they do an after-story. I won't hold my breath.
Tonk (68-69TonkinGulfYachtClub) was more than correct about fox news!
Thanks for the post.
great pics! Nice to meet you.
***CindyLoon's comment was totally incoherent. I hope she keeps right on spitting them out.***
It is so obvious that Cindy is being fed lines from her NY public relations firm. She talks like the idiot she is, but throws in some of the flak's lines which sound good if you happen to be stupid.
Don't worry. The message was received by those unpatriotic louts. THEY KNOW!
If I could fit that in my tagline, I'd use it :) Well said!
I agree. This is right out of the Commie/leftist handbook.
I'm having the same problem with the Bob Hope footage. I'd LOVE to know what it says!
A caricature is a drawing or illustration that exaggerates the features of the subject. Sometimes caricatures are affectionate distortions, such as the chalk drawings people "sit" for at county fairs and seashore towns. Another example is the drawings of theater folk by the famous Hirschfeld, who always included the name of his daughter Nina in his pen strokes of each drawing. But caricatures in political life are often used to cruelly parody the subject.
The item sticking out the car window was a true-to-life "actual-sized photo cut-out" of President Bush. But of course "caricature" sounds more negative....
If my smile gets any bigger, my face is going to crack! Love the picture, texjan! Thank you!

Geoff Montgomery (Richard Carlson) : A zombie has no will of his own. You see them sometimes walking around blindly with dead eyes, following orders, not knowing what they do, not caring.
Larry Lawrence (Bob Hope): You mean like Democrats.
Just wondered what mold of "republican". Thanks
for the answer. I don't think their ideology
will be that far apart.
