And yet another Facebook account

If you don't know my name, ask in the comments. Or check Tim Huston on Facebook for the link to my new Facebook account. This is her photo.

Life without Facebook

Somebody apparently told Facebook that I'm not the person who has been posting as me. I was told I had to send a photo id with my name and birthdate to Facebook. They received it and said they would check into it then let me know their decision. 

How frustrating!!!!!

I can't report on the Infinity.
I can't post a Tim photo.
I can't boast about helping a friend buy a backup device and a new printer then installing those plus the new modem.
I feel lost and alone.

And I need Facebook when I travel.

Meanwhile this is what I see on Google Chrome whenever a photo of Trump appears. LOL.

Tim visits her old abode on a cold December day

Today Tim decided to go out into the 24°F cold icy reality she used to have to endure.  She looked for the open garage door that she and her "friends" used to get shelter. She looked a little confused when she found it closed. I donned my boots, opened the people door for her and turned the lights on. 


She carefully explored everywhere. The kayak belongs to a neighbor. When Tim lived in the barn this was a large open space. In cold weather there would be boxes with blankets, heated water, a tent to keep the heat in and a heater if it was bitterly cold. The cats were fed twice a day.

I was surprised she went everywhere carefully checking with eyes and nose.

She was able to do a little climbing which was also unusual. She has been willing to eat food with Cosequin in it. Her arthritis seems to be lessening a bit as a result.

After sniffing all the blankets and foam Tim checked out the box.

She seemed to be saying, "This is how it used to be."

She started to leave then got distracted by something she smelled.

Finally she just sat and looked at me for a bit.

She looked around and told me something important then lay down as if she planned to stay. I turned the lights out and left the door open. Eventually she returned to the house and retreated to her cave in the bedroom where she stayed all afternoon.

Clinton/Kaine Rally, Pittsburgh, PA, Saturday 22 October 2016

This rally was quite different from the Trump rally in Erie. The venue was much smaller so the crowd was crowded and the auditorium was opened for the overflow. Around 3000 apparently. My friend Peg with her guide dog Reggie got us around the line and into a seated area. Yea.



Waiting


I liked the Planned Parenthood posters. 


Arkansas Travelers



I don't know who the ladies in front of us were but they got lots of attention from others including selfies with them.

She sang the National Anthem a cappella and did an excellent job of it


I don't remember if they said she was the head of Pittsburgh or Allegheny County Dem Party.

Signers alternated.



I voted for this guy.

Pittsburgh's mayor

No clue who he is.

The 96 year old next to us. He stood and watched Clinton for a little while. His daughter was friendly.

There were quite a few youngsters.

Love her shirt.

And her leggings.


With the Rooneys. Couldn't get a decent photo.

Kaine


Lots of Secret Service whose facial expressions never changed.



Proving I was there.





Taking photos around this fellow while trying to avoid an extremely bright spotlight was a challenge. Many of the photos look washed out thanks to the extremely brightly lit auditorium.

Reggie didn't care. He was mostly well-behaved.





I was one person too far to get to shake hands with her. She walked along in front of us listening to what people had to say. Note the Secret Service guy with the never changing expression.
