Tuesday night my Hubby and I were getting ready for his hernia surgery, so I didn’t get to do much more than watch the Convention on PBS. I do want to mention a couple of things, however.

As Darraugh Murphy said, We ARE the ones no one was expecting! 

Riverdaughter articulated the idea well with her inaugural article in June:


If accomplishments and events are markers for our life, it seems like this weekend is a good time to put a few together in one list.

Puma PAC and coalition members have assembled in Denver. Activities and links to other groups can be found on the I Own My Vote, Just Say No Deal, Puma Pac, and The Denver Group websites.
