    It feels as if after the 7th was the first time we've slept well since the election. There really have been positive results since November ‘16

    While the 7th was dramatic with Dems winning NJ Gov, VA Gov & Lt Gov of VA bringing our triumvirates (governor and both state houses) from 6 to 8. Maine expanded Medicaid ... But since '16 we've actually done a lot.

    We Flipped the Hopkinton planning board, Fairfax, Des Moines & entire New Mexico school boards.

    Las Cruses mayor & city council, Wisconsin Supt of Education who ran against candidates favoring vouchers and privatization. Progressive Larry Krasner is now Philly DA, I’ve lost track of state senate seats flipped, it's a ton. Granted we were 1000+ behind nation wide but finally, movement.

    Mayors of Charlotte, Framingham, Manchester, Hoboken, Helena, Seattle , Albuquerque, St Paul, Statesburough, Cairo, Santa Barbara, New Orleans, Birmingham …

    Now on 12/12/17 if we get Jones into the senate and start on both houses.

    And back to reality... we need to call our senators AGAIN because they are trying AGAIN to gut the Affordable Care Act, this time through the tax bill that benefits a handful of rich people at the expense of everyone else.

    And don't get me started on the wave of sexual assault and harassment revelations because I can't even.

    Sigh. I have resistbot on both phones and fax them daily from one or the other. https://resistbot.io

    If the bot gets overworked and freezes I send postcards which are probably more fun for them.

    Currently using Simpsons postcards, sometime national parks ...

    It's been a year... the organizers of the Women's March will be holding an anniversary "Power to the Polls" event in Las Vegas.

    http://www.powertothepolls.com

    Meanwhile various events are being planned around the country. A search for my ZIP Code brought up marches in DC, Baltimore and Frederick MD, plus other events. You can search you own area here.

    I am planning to participate in the DC march, though thanks to the torn ankle tendon I don't think I can do nearly as much walking this year as last. So I'm not sure how involved I will be able to be.

    Marching in Seattle. Also we have an upcoming school bond election. I'd said "I'm sick to death of being on the phone. 25 years of talking to our dear customers once I retire I'm never using a phone again."

    Yep, calling voters and will likely do this through midterms or even 2020.

    So if you get a call during midterms "hello, this is Trek420 and I'm a volunteer for ______ candidate. Is this the person to whom I am speaking?" It's me.

    Trek, you will probably be very good at phone banking, thanks to your experience. Hopefully it feel less stressful knowing you are working for a cause that is important to you.

    I am furiously trying to finish crocheting my pussycat hat in time for the march on Saturday. I had actually finished one a couple of months ago but it was too small -- I am new to this crochet thing and still have much to learn -- so I ripped out all the stitches and started over. I sorta combined two different patterns so am just hoping it looks okay when I'm done.

    Meanwhile I still don't know how much I'll be able to walk on Saturday, but I will give it a try. I think (hope) if I go slowly and stop fairly often I will be okay.
