To me this photo of Shawnee and I looks right out of an old Sears and Robuck catalog! "Clinton Casuals" or something. I'm just waking up over here, out of tea and out of a car for the next 2 weeks, so this will be a good time to get in shape and do some walking! I can't believe how fantastic yesterday's party was! People just blow me away with their generosity and sweetness! I don't know how I can ever thank everyone enough! I'm eating some Judy Nagle rubarb pie for breakfast and it is soooo delicious!
So Michelle dropped by Roka tonight, high as a kite on who knows what, to bum a few bucks and polish off other peoples drinks. It wasn't long before she was doing the splits on the bar! I'm kind of dreading bringing her to the party tomorrow! I'm afraid she just doesn't know when enough is enough!
The Hilldolls were out on their morning speedwalk early this morning and snapped this shocking photo! Michelle "Party Grrrl" Obama, sleeping it off outside of Elmo's bar! She's really gone "Bisbee" on us!
She was later spotted trying to pry the door open at Elmo's, no doubt in search of more booze!
Why it's Britt Hanson! His purchase helps the Hillcar get down the road to Pennsylvania!As Michelle Obamadolls new owner, Britt decided to allow Michelle to kick up her heels and go to the Hillcar party on Sunday! I warned him she's a bit of a wild child and may get herself into trouble, but he let her go just the same!
Michelle was last seen working on her speeches with Jesse Smith. I sense more trouble to come!
Sunday's party is just around the bend! I've got tons of things to finish up! More spray-painting on costumes this morning, The Hillcar needs work, the Hilldolls need to be finished...lots of details on the artshow to figure out! Here's a sticker I made from Shawnee's cool image, I wish I made more for Sunday... I was testing and only made a few!
All the Hilldolls are working hard on their speeches tonight over at Leigh's house. They all want to give the nomination acceptance speech, but only one Hillary can be up at the podium..who will it be?
As of early this morning 700 acres have burned, amazingly enough, no houses though! The fire is still raging away off in the mountains away from town. Last night the fire was dangerously close to town, a lot of people were evacuated. I was at work at Cafe Roka during the worst of it, which happened to be back behind my house. While at work,besides watching the fire burning from the back door of Roka, we had a black out so served by candlelight. During service our hostesses street was evacuated so she had to run home and gather her belongings. I also left early. As I walked home I could see the hills were on fire on both sides of my street. Walking past St. Elmos bar , everyone was out and acting crazy... energized by the chaos, kind of scary! When I got home Shawnee had packed what he thought I'd most want... my computer, camera, Hillary portrait, and all my Hillary melmac, plus a pair of pants and my H.C.A. t-Shirt. That's pretty funny... all my Hillary melmac is packed up! Gotta love Shawnee... he knows what I love most!
Bisbee caught on fire this afternoon, it started with a man burning his garbage and turned into a massive fire! It has spread all around the area I live but hasn't taken any houses. Certain areas have been evacuated but not where I live. We are on watch though and have some stuff packed up. You guessed right if you think my Hillary painting with her signature is tops on my list of things to take! The fire swept past our house late this afternoon and was at it's worst, but here I am, merrily blogging! Shawnee and I climbed around the mountain tonight and took these pictures...
This one Shanwee took in the dark and I manipulated it a bit!
The fire is still cruising the hills around us, so I don't think it will be a restful night!
Here's the insiders peek at the making of the Hilldoll. That Sergeant Leigh is amazing, she can hold the baby and sew at the same time! After cutting one Hilldolls hair I decided to leave that to the experts! Oh, Desha...!
Two days of cutting out Hillary stencils and no dice! Nothing is coming out quite the way I want! Sometimes art is like... magic! And what I see in my mind comes right out... but not this time! Stencils are a strange creature.. I don't understand them quite yet! Grrrrr...
The weather is nice again! I want to play again! Hmmm... Here's you choices of what yours truly shall grace the tennis courts with! I call this... " I LOVE '70's T.V.!" I. "Remembering Rhoda" 2. "Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!" 3. "Shirley Partridge hits the courts" P.S. I'm adding a 4th.... 4. Hillary Spice!
I went to the thrift shop this afternoon and scored all these dolls... If all goes accordingly these dolls will soon all be Hilldolls! Before dropping them off to Sergaent Leigh to outfit them in pantsuits, I took this picture of them in the snow. Weird snow around these parts... looks like styrofoam, but it really is snow!
Kate and I bought our plane tickets to Allentown, PA yesterday! I will be arranging for the Hillcar to be shipped on the back of an auto-carrier from Bisbee AZ to Kate's mom's retirement home in Hellertown, PA. Kate's mom is a big Hillary fan so she is very excited about the arrival of the Hillcar! Kate, myslef, and the Hillcar will be whereever the fun is and wherever the Hill-winds blow us! We hope to meet lots of Hillary supporters, and generally add some Hill-excitement to Pennsylvania! We also hope to go to lots of Hill-rallys and we won't be satisfied until Hillary says "oh jeez, you guys again"! Lynn ashbridge is planning a fund-raiser in Tucson to help me pay for this. The auto-carrier alone is 2,000 bucks! I'll fill you in on all the details, but save this date: Sunday afternoon, March 30th at Lynn Ashbridges in Tucson. I'll post the details soon!
As the final hours tick to a close we find we are in a nail-biting tie as to who will play Judy Nagle in our Hollywood version of the Hillary Clinton Army. Shirely Maclaine and Goldie Hawn are battling it out in blogland! Let's do a little research, shall we? Here's Shirley in her classic sweet Charity song... I can definitely see a bit of Judy here! But before you get caught up in Shirleyworld, I recommend you play this video and Goldie's video at the same time and really get Nagled! Try it!
Here's Goldie's video about how she stays centered!
Whew! That's all the studying for me tonight! I leave it to YOU to decide!
I played tennis yesterday for the first time since 1976, when I was 12. I decided to call myself "The spirit of '76" , which I'm sure will tie in somehow to going to Philladelphia for Hillary! Anyways, I got my butt whooped in tennis, but I think the modified tux look gave me some needed zing !
Whew! I'm out of shape, but I can't wait to play again! Whatever shall I wear?
