WEEK 202: NOV. 21,2009
The MAC is BACK, the iMacMan that is. iMacMan is someone I consider a cold weather FReeper. His retirement keeps him away from Olney during the warmer months.
While iMacMan didnt bring his cameras today, he takes some of the best pictures of our passing supporters that I know of. And then the edits he does are great. To those who know cameras, I do not, he sets his cameras on wide lens and then with one push of the button, gets 6 frames shot.
BELOW: Several of iMacMans neat pictures.
Did I forget to mention that iMacMan (BELOW) is just great to be around. Im looking forward to more Olney FReeps with him.
The OTHER 10 patriots that were at Olney this week are: Legionnaires Glenn (USMC, WWII), Dave (Army, WWII) and friend, Janet, Halsey (USMC, Korea), Jack (Coastie, Korean War era), and then there is also Lurker Bill, Cindy_True_Supporter, Fraxinus, [Mrs] Trooprally and myself.
Pictures this week are by [Mrs] T.

WEEK 203: NOV. 28,2009
The Navy showed up again this Saturday. And he, Matt, brought a Navy flag for us. When he was with us several weeks ago I asked him for a Navy flag.
BELOW LEFT: Matt is from TEXAS and will be deployed on ship this January. Matt is the Texan in the leather Stetson. Standing with him are GunsAreOK, me, Legionnaire Dave. BELOW RIGHT: We had the flag up two weeks later, Week 205, do out soon, as soon as I finish playing catch up with the back AARs. The first following week, Week 204, we had snow. Navy flag with a cold Janet and Lurker Bill in the back ground.
The 10 patriots that were at Olney this week are: Legionnaires Dave (Army, WWII) and friend, Janet, with Lurker Bill and Cindy_True_Supporter, GunsAreOK, [Mr] of the husband/wife team of RedWhiteandBlue and his twin sons (our grandsons), [Mrs] Trooprally and myself.
With Matt being active duty he was not counted in our Roll Call. Technically he can participate while in civilian cloths but it is best not to do so. But his presence sure is a spirit up-lifter.
Pictures this week are by [Mrs] T. The low, bright sun played havoc with [Mrs] Ts camera.
BELOW LEFT: [Mr] RedWhiteandBlue. Its not nice to turn your head when your mother-in-law is trying to take your picture.BELOW RIGHT: Our twin grandsons.
BELOW LEFT: Janet holding down our left flank while Dave talked to our Navy vet as shown in the pic above. BELOW RIGHT: GunsAreOK along with Dave finally make it over to our left flank.
BELOW: Cindy_True_Supporter with her friend. These two became friends after starting a discussion several months ago as we were breaking down.

DC Chapter Master Ping List catch up ping.
Nice job folks! Boy, you aren’t kidding about the clarity of the pictures of passing cars!
Keep up the good work...looking forward to getting down there and seeing all of you again!
Hooray for the good guys! I love to read about you out there supporting the troops each week.
FReepers are the best!
The pictures are clear and a pleasure to view. I am glad to see all of you so well bundled up. Keep warm and see you all soon.
RE: Cindy making friends.....Anyone who can not become a friend of Cindy true Supporter is not looking for a friend. She is the best! Love-ya girl.
So...are you all caught up now? It’s about time. You’re worse at procrastination than I am, and that is really really bad. Kudos to all the brave souls who faced the weather. I don’t think I would be up to that much “exposure”. I love summer time.
God Bless all you folks for being out there !! Stay safe with the weekend weather coming in.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO THE DC CHAPTER !!!!!
And Merry Christmas to all our Massachusetts FReepers who are keeping Christ in Christmas up there.
[Mr] T for the DC Chapter
Ohhhh, I love surprises.
