Skip to comments.3 Year Anniversary Is Now History: Wk 156, Olney, MD 01-03-09: Op. Infinite FReep
Posted on 01/05/2009 4:45:44 PM PST by trooprally
Our 3 Year Anniversary is now history without making history that will shake the world. But we are proud to have been Olney for three years. We are proud to join the other FReeps and Gathering of Eagles rallies that have been going on for years all over the United States. We will continue to be in Olney so long as we are needed.
History will show something though. It will show that as our military fights to defend us and the world against radical Islam, determined groups of Patriots through out these United States have stood up for them.
Patriots in attendance today are Jim (USMC - Vietnam), Legionnaire Dennis (Army - Korea), Lurker Bill, 3DJoy, Cindy_True_Supporter, Fraxinus, GunsAreOK [Mrs] Trooprally, and myself.
Pics were by [Mrs] T and myself.
BELOW LEFT: Jim waving to passing cars. Jim is a newbie this week. He has seen us on the corner before and said that he always hooked and waved. I met Jim several weeks ago at the barber shop. Seeing 5th Marines on his cap, we struck up a conversation while sitting in the barber chair. True to his word, he said he would show up today. All the hooks, waves and our group convinced him to come again when he returns from his trip. BELOW RIGHT: GunsAreOK and Fraxinus. They kept Jim from getting lonely with some lively conversation.
BELOW LEFT: 3DJoy, always a joy to have around. She has on her 2009" sunglasses. She had to be convinced NOT to show up at Walter Reed the night before or at Olney as the New Years baby. BELOW RIGHT: And Dennis is always fun to be around, especially when he brings his patriotic singing buddy.
BELOW LEFT: And [Mrs] T is back in the fight, sort of. The cold really bothered her shoulder and she had to spend time in the car keeping warm. BELOW RIGHT: [Mrs] T was able to get one passing supporter. Her right arm isnt quite up to speed yet.
BELOW LEFT: Lurker Bill was back after several weeks off. BELOW RIGHT: And me. Luck was shining on me today. Last week while setting up the red banner, I caught the Blue Star pin attached to my cap on the guy wire and off it went. Couldnt find it with all the leaves on the ground. I found it this week while taking down the red banner. The 40 MPH winds we had earlier in the week had blown the leaves away, uncovering the pin.
BELOW LEFT: Fraxinus and Cindy_True_Supporter. The sun made it a little warmer. But the wind slowly got through the layers of clothing and we were a little chilled when we broke up. BELOW RIGHT: Chilled we were, so off we went to Daves American Bisto.
BELOW LEFT: Had to get [Mrs] T in the pic. She doesnt particularly like her pic being taken so when it is, she likes to make faces. BELOW RIGHT: The far end of the table is usually dark, so here is the far end.where Lurker Bills family sat.
The moonbats were out today. Along with the mandatary chairs. They are all ready for Obambi to declare that at any gather of 5 or more older socialists, there will be a chair for each. A new Department of Chairs with police powers will be established after January 20.

You all missed another great Olney FReep!!
Wish we could have been there!
Congratulations on your 3 Year Anniversary in Olney! Such dedication and true accomplishment. God bless you all and thank you for always being their for our Troops and their families!
Welcome back, [Mrs] T and Lurker Bill!
You were well represented by 3D.
I wish someone would officially declare VICTORY in IRAQ so we can get onto Afghanistan and Iran. Hope there is not a 4 Year Anniversary.
Nice of you...thanks!
[stands and applauds brave Olney patriots]
Salute!!! God bless you all for your devotion to the United States of America and it’s wonderful military members!!!
What happened with the MOAB contest? I never saw any more entries. Does that mean I won?
Thank You for the great kudos from the Olney Patriots.
MOAB contest is on til mid March.
The AAR writers are keeping track of the entries. Which reminds me, I need to have tgslTakoma start preparing the sheets for the new slogan.
My late father was in the military (Navy), as was my brother who served in Iraq (Nat’l Guard) a few years ago. It’s not right the way some liberals treat our bravest heroes. :-(
I’m so glad you all are standing up for them—wish I was in a position to join you all, but I can send support through prayers for your safety and your mission, and heartfelt thanks from the sister of a veteran! :*)
Your family and the current members of our armed forces are the reason we are out there. Please tell your brother - Thanks.
I will! :*)
Yes, didn’t think of that!!
Thanks for the morning smile.
For the past two weeks, I was without cash or motorcycle. Saturday, I had a locksmith come and make a new key to replace the one I lost.
Ironically, after paying $130 and 5 minutes after he left, I found my key had fallen into my dog’s kennel.
If the rain predictions for Friday and Saturday are premature, I’ll be seeing you.
Good deal. I figured you were still alive but the cold kept you off you bike, not a lost key.
B.U.M.P. ! ! ! !
Thank you. If it wasn’t for all the FReepers, Lurkers, Legionnaires and passing supporters I’m not sure if we would still be there.
See you when we can.
Congratulations to all of you for being so faithful to the cause! Stay warm out there.
Oh geez, Is that what they call Murphy’s law? I bet you had some choice words to say about that time.
Thanks but couldn’t have done it without you. You are legendary in the eyes of those you know.
Thank you. That brightend up my day.
