Saturday Night Protest Party!

This is how I am feeling right now.

Dance like no one's watching.

Sing like no one's listening.

"Volunteers" - almost 50 years old and STILL true today! 
"Look what's happening out in the streets, Got a revolution, Got to revolution!"


RESIST, INSIST, PERSIST, ENLIST! (thank you Hillary!)

ORGANIZE!  MOBILIZE!  TAKE A KNEE!  RAISE A FIST!

CALL OUT THE H8!  EVERYWHERE!  RIGHT FUCKING NOW!

  1. Today is going to be our first day lifted out of the horrific deep-freeze into which we were plunged about 10 days ago, W.Q. - ENORMOUS relief - so I've a good idea how you'll be feeling once that impeachment process gets under way. BUT there's always the scary possibility that it could come back to ruin our Spring or even the Summer - so I equally know how you'd feel should a Pence Presidency become more likely. However, taking one thing at a time, priorities, priorities!

    Salutations to you, RTG + the three puss-keteers.
    Do have a specially nice w/e, all of you - on Patchie's orders!

    1. KING RAYBEARD IS FIRST! :)

      friday started out bad - evil snowstorm. I left work early. by yesterday, the snow was gone due to a warm sunny day. I think my spring flowers are confused.

      another sunny day today. we just returned home from lunch (mexican). RTG worked 1/2 day yesterday; I did house chores sat/sun, RTG did chores this morning. and he made a pot of turkey noodle soup.

      the puss-keteers are on the sunporch sleeping (so what else is new). we have the baseball game on the radio (spring training game; doesn't count). back to the work benches tomorrow.

      hope you and patchie are seeing some spring signs in the UK!

    2. Saw my first daffs of the year this morning. They must have been hiding until it was safe to emerge. Much more typical March weather now, thanks.
      Salutations to all.

    3. I have snowdrops blooming. daffs, hyacinths, tulips are poking their green stems above ground, but no blooms yet. and guess what we are getting tuesday night? more fucking snow! :(

    4. Yes, I've noticed your rather alarming fall in temps on the global weather charts I see every morning. I hope you're not getting a taste of the same 'Beast from the East' (i.e. Siberia) that we experienced - though for you it could more likely be the 'Pest from the West'. Let's hope not, W.Q.

  3. The daily headlines are un-frickin-believable.

    50 years?!?

    One generation got soul
    This generation got no destination to hold
    Pick up the cry"

  5. Workin’ the hippy vibe in the video. Love it. I felt like taking all my clothes off and dancing to this one (perhaps later). Ray beard has already eloquently described what has been going on in the neck of the woods. Thankfully a thaw is a coming.
    Have a great weekend x

    1. "I felt like taking all my clothes off and dancing to this one" - I'd pay good money to see THAT! ;-)

      we had a nasty snowstorm on friday; I left work early (a good thing). by yesterday, most of it had melted due to a warm sunny day.

      BESOS to you and guido (and his hose)!

    "the three puss-keteers."

    Secondly, just stand up, speak up, act up, vote,
    That's the way out of this mess.

  12. You do know I have this on vinyl, right? I loved it when they changed to Jefferson Starship for the Blows Against the Empire album. I have that, too.
