Skip to comments.3DJoy RETIRES, From Maryland that is - Week 294, 9-10-11
Posted on 09/14/2011 5:55:11 AM PDT by trooprally
This Saturday was 3DJoys last FReep before retiring back to her warm, sunny home. 3D joins the DC Chapter for the summer months and it was only fitting that a lot of DC Chapter members were in Olney for her last FReep. While Tammy Cat, Kburi and Lurker Ethel could not join us on the corners they were able to join us for lunch at the Olney Compound. After a week of rain, 6 3/4 inches of rain in Olney, the sun shined brightly on this Saturday. A warm, sunny day for a warm, friendly send off.
11 Patriots in Olney this Saturday include Dave (Army, WWII) and friend Janet, Halsey (USMC, Korea), Kim, Lurker Jim, and FReepers Cindy_True_Supporter, Fraxinus, GunsAreOK, Sensei Ern, [Mrs] Trooprally and myself

Lots of waves and honks this week. Here are just a few. With so many supporters driving by [Mrs] T just pointed the camera and clicked. The hard part was to down load and process them all just to show only a few..
Moonbats mustered 5 today.
If you live in northern VA and want a short cut to Olney See Post 39 Here. It's an easy 20 minute drive from the American Legion Bridge.
A special Thanks to a FReeper FRiend for enhancing the original plain type directions.

DC Chapter Master Ping List
I have to let you know that my DH has held a Freeper sign only ONCE — and it was with you faithful, at Olney. Jim supports all that I did and do, but he is not one to get out there in front —— except at Olney. AND — he really enjoyed doing it!
3D-Joy may be gone from sight but not from oversight. :-) I’m confident she’ll be checking in from sunny Florida on you guys standing guard in the coming-too-soon cold weather.
Have fun battling those leftists youse guys!
You got that right. She keeps busy down south though. Just good to have her when we can. Good to have any out of town FReeper to help out, including yourself
Sounds like you all are having a great and successful time. And knowing how much 3D does down south, we have mixed emotions about seeing her leave. She does wonders up here.
Enjoy the sunshine Joy...especially while the rest of us are freezing our bums off. Hope to see you again...maybe the Christmas holiday get together?
“Freezing our buns off” - does that mean we will see you in Olney to freeze your buns off? /smiling
Know you all will miss 3DJoy, but now we have her back in Florida. Looking forward to seeing her during the Florida Presidency 5/CPAC-FL events from Sept 22-24.
The Tea Party Express/CNN Tampa Debate was a great time for some of us FL Freepers to get together and we were delighted that Syncro and Onyx also got to join us! We also got to see Freeper PrezUsa22 and Debbie Lee!
Know some pictures will be posted on the open debate thread. Will see you all in DC next time our little old truck brings us up that way!
God Bless you all! Job well done.
Thank you for the Olney Patriots.
Yep, we are lucky to have her up here for the summer. But Florida needs her back to help keep pushing FL to a more solid conservative state.
And Brevard says WELCOME BACK!!!
What a surprise to see the pic! And delighted! Thank you so much for going thru all your picture files to pull it out. I now have a copy on the refrig for all to see. Jim isn’t smiling in it, but he sure grinned when I showed it to him.
You all are so devoted. Oh — how I wish I lived nearer!
Our loss is your gain.
You are welcome. Glad it brought a smile to Jim. It was no trouble since I knew when you were here. I just looked into [Mrs] T’s photobucket files.
Love these reports and the pix to see my friends!
Thank you for all who showed up & for the report, thread & ping.
now that Friday nights are at Walter Reed are “no longer”, will you be doing weekly reports from Olney?
Do you think the moonbats will begin protesting at Bethesda?
I plan on doing weekly reports, though they will not be as exciting as WR. No wounded warriors to talk to or a bus. But we do have an Iwo Jima Marine, a WWII Army Vet, and several Korean War Vets that stand with us. We always have a good time but hard to show that in pictures.
We are keeping an eye out at Bethesda in case the moonbats are ready. We are committed to supporting our troops no matter where the moonbats show up.
Back in 2006-07 the moonbats were in Westminster, Maryland, about 40 miles north of Olney. Our schedule was Friday at WR, Saturday morning in Olney, and then we left directly from Olney to Westminster. Eventually the Westminster moonbats gave up. We always asked the “poor” last moonbat who stood there for the last month about the lack of commitment of the other leftist protestors. We almost always had 4-6 patriots and received a lot of passing support.
