Skip to comments.LIVE Report From Crawford (3,000 folks now and STILL COMING!)
Posted on 08/27/2005 10:02:40 AM PDT by TXBubba
Just talked to Basil on site in Crawford, Texas. Currently there are about 100 folks there helping to set up. They have not received word about the caravan arrival in Waco yet. JimRob is riding with the caravan. She thinks it might get to Crawford around 1:00 p.m.
Basil says the stage is set up, the sound system is excellent and they have hung the most beautiful banners overnighted by W04Man on the stage. A big thanks for the banners, they are much appreciated!
Someone arrived early and hung yellow ribbons everywhere.
They have an American flag that is about 50 feet by 40 feet. Children of military personnel serving in the Middle East have written notes to their parents on the stripes of this flag. A very touching thing to behold.
The HOT Chapter booth is being unloaded right now. The will sell buttons made by Angelwood to help off set costs.
Someone rented the Community Center for our use so there is access to AC. However, they also have 10 tents set up. And there is a Moonwalk for the kiddos.
To top everything else there is BBQ on the grill! Basil is the official taster and says it is great!
That is all the news I have at the moment. It is hard to get a cell phone connection to Crawford but when I hear more I will try to update everyone.
C-Span is having an OPEN LINE segment tomorrow morning at 7:00 AM to 7:45 and again 9:15 AM to 9:30.

Great pics, as usual, Valerie. Check out the picture of my daughter and the group she brought at post 1801.
I will plug you in next week!
So, uh... what's her story?
Great picture -- wouldn't it have been cool to have blue ink on our fingers at the rally?
I liked the one of the guys on the horses ... I'm not sure if these are guys that were the ones interviewed on Air American .. but I got a chuckle from it
The chic from AA was getting on their case and asking how could you spray paint a horses back end like that
And the Gentlemen just said .. Ummm mamm, that's not spray paint .. it's shoe polish ... *L*
They are happy patriotic horses!
Any thread is right for that picture. Heidi Klum just got replaced as my wallpaper.
Why does this remind me of x42's fake tears at Ron Brown's Funeral???
Mien Kampf does work.
