Climate Change finally made it to the Olney area, especially Week 197.
WEEK 197, Oct. 17,2009
Week 197s roll call in Olney of 9 Patriots includes Legionnaires Glenn (USMC, WWII), Dave (Army, WWII) and friend, Janet, Halsey (USMC, Korea), Carl (Army, Vietnam Era), Lurker Bill, Cindy_True_Supporter, [Mrs] Trooprally and myself.
Pictures this week are by [Mrs] T.
Moonbats: 1, and she left early.
But we couldnt blame her. Weather dropped into the 40s with rain on Friday and the rain and cold continued into Saturday. Dave had to stay in the car while Janet gave her time on the corner. Carl and Glenn also left a little early.
BELOW LEFT: Cindy_True_Supporter. BELOW RIGHT: Lurker Bill
BELOW LEFT: Janet, also standing in for Dave. BELOW RIGHT: Me on the right flank. Mud made the sidewalk slick. We also just put up our flanking flags.
BELOW LEFT: Dennis, Halsey, Glenn and Carl holding down our left flank. BELOW RIGHT: Halsey checking out the rain and thinking: They call this bad weather? In Korea it rained so hard that it bounced off the frozen ground and went up our ponchos. At least those who had ponchos. And the mud, jeez, in Korea the mud ..........
BELOW: Lone Moonbat. I guess by just showing up is worth putting up her picture.
WEEK 198, Oct. 24,2009
Week 198s roll call was better than last week. Weather was only threatening rain and temps were at least in the 50s. Wind kept some of our banners packed away. Olneys 11 Patriots includes Legionnaires Glenn (USMC, WWII), Dave (Army, WWII) and friend, Janet, Halsey (USMC, Korea), Dennis (Army, Vietnam), Carl (Army, Vietnam Era), Lurker Bill, Cindy_True_Supporter, Fraxinus, GunsAreOK and myself.
Pictures this week are by me. [Mrs] T was out helping prepare for our nieces wedding.
BELOW LEFT: Our corner with some banners and a lot of flags. BELOW RIGHT: Fraxinus and mud. Once the concrete sets sufficiently to erect the new traffic poles the new walk should be laid.
BELOW LEFT: Dennis, his singer soldier and Halsey. BELOW RIGHT: Dave, Glenn and Janet.
BELOW LEFT: Lurker Bill, Cindy_True_Supporter, Fraxinus and GunsAreOK. BELOW RIGHT: Halsey, Carl and Dennis.
Weather kept us from taking any pictures of passing supporters but they were there. We even received several salutes.

God Bless all of you! A miserable, rainy day, and you could be sitting at home watching television, but you folks all get out there and do it.
What a great bunch of people.
I admit, I have to give some kind of twisted, grudging respect to that lone moonbat. That person looks like a dog in the rain, and that just can’t be fun.
Looks like you all had a great turnout...keep up the good work!
Wasn’t that great to be with them? I have done it a few times, and it always feels like an honor to me, every time.
Yep, it was only a slight drizzle early on at Walter Reed but it cleared up. And a perfect day on Saturday.
Your giving the moonbat more recognition then the media gave hundreds of thousands at the Capitol on 9-12.
If I’m not mistaken, she is not a Quaker.
Thanks for the kudos and standing with us at Walter Reed and Olney.
Give yourselves a pat on the back.
Janet looks kind-of cute in her rain outfit.
I’ll ‘pat’ our patriots on the back this Saturday.
Re Janet, misery loved us that morning.
You are right...the weather really turned on you!
I am so glad to see you all there and sorry you are dealing with the construction mess...guess it is not a hurry up and finish the “shovel ready” project! LOL
Thanks for being there...all of you!
Whats Olney, a publication, person, place,?????
Troop, I was going to ask is anybody still standing at Walter Reed? We don’t hear anything from there. I know it gets old reporting and not many people seem to care, but there are some of us who watch religiously to see the reports. Thank you for all that you do and for your steadfastness in rain/sleet/snow and liberals. God bless.
Thanks for the ping.
Thank you from the Olney Patriots.
Yea, all the construction projects going on have been in the process for years. “Shovel ready” will be ready for the aught-10 elections so Rats can claim this is what their porkulus bill is doing.
That is why we are gerrymandered as part of very liberal Prince Georges County, the PG County area that is adjacent to South East D.C.
Yep, we are still going at Walter Reed. And yes, we are behind in writing the AARs. Please be patient.
Walter Reed is slated to close sometime in 2011. We’ll be out there till then or until the moonbats leave. Though several hard core patriots will probably be there even if they leave.
You are welcome. Looks like a warm day this Saturday, but maybe some drizzle before the rain moves in. Looks like I’ll have to get my yard work started today. Don’t want the leaves to get wet before I can blow them off the grass.
thanks for the ping.
You’re welcome. :-)
