This Saturday, to all those who have attended Olneys Support the Troops Rally, YOU WERE OUT ON OLNEYs CORNER IN SPIRIT. And those who have read the Olney AARs as we come up to our 4 Year Anniversary on January 2,2010, Thank You for your support.
BELOW LEFT: Distant view of our red banner from Friday night thru Monday morning. BELOW RIGHT: Close up of banner, dah. That explanation is for any moonbats who are reading this AAR.
BELOW LEFT: Saturday AM at the Olney Bunker. Hey [Mrs] T - think we can make it up the hill?. BELOW RIGHT: Bright n sunny Sunday and still no snow plows. Just for the record, I measured the snow in 3 places and they all read 15 inches.
BELOW LEFT: Putting up the red banner after the Walter Reed Friday night Troop Support Rally. BELOW RIGHT: And this pile of snow is right in our path for unloading our flags, banners, and FReepers. Our path to our corner was about 60 feet. Now it is about 150 feet. We sure are spoiled, but we enjoy it. At Walter Reed we park right next to our corners and here we are 60 feet.
HEY maybe the shopping center will make a path for us. /sarc off
A heads up for Walter Reed. The moonbats have said that they WILL be out there Christmas Day. We have a number of FReepers who will also be there. But if you are in the area visiting and have always wanted to come out, this would be a great day to say HI.
If you do not make it to Walter Reed, then have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

DC Chapter Master Ping List
Thanks to all who have been in Olney and those who have given us encouragement.
Looking good in Olney on Saturday. That’s alotta snow on your corner.
Weather just doesn’t defeat the DC Chapter of Free Republic.
For those who aren’t familiar, Walter Reed on Georgia Ave in Washington, DC, is about eight miles due south of this corner on Georgia Ave in Olney, Maryland. Mr and Mrs Trooprally have certainly connected these two dots with red, white and blue supportthetroops patriotism for well over 4 1/2 years.
They keep us going when the going gets tough.
Thanks guys and Merry Christmas to you both.
You are welcome. Your’s and many others’ kudos sure help, especially in the cold weather.
Great pictures and thanks for sharing them! Must say I love looking at the pretty snow, what my family in CT always called “white pearly dew drops”.
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Merry Christmas and ping to Freepers near DC!
Thanks for the Best Wishes from the DC Chapter.
white pearly dew drops - like my first boss called rain “liquid sunshine”.
What troopers you all are.
Thank you for the continued support
I really like the scene, blinking lights and all. Thanks a million.
Thanks for the regular pings.
You are welcome from the Olney patriots.
PS - I like tour tag line.
