Yesterday afternoon about 45-50 people fought the sprinkles and enjoyed the third Burlington/Vermont Bloggers' BBQ yesterday at North Beach, Burlington. My first appearance at this annual shin-dig and had a chance to finally meet some of the other area bloggers. JD Ryan and some of the GMD folks. And there were two cute guys from Democracy for America. Christian Avard was sporting a cool Docudharma t shirt (I read that blog religiously.) Pollina and Symington showed their faces, but that was about it. Anthony looked out of place; no wonder he scrammed. Nate Freeman gathered signatures for his Lt. Gov. run. Haik Bedrosian and his family had a good time. So did I.
"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was." - Molly Ivins 1944-2007
