I'm just about ready to go to Washington, DC tonight! Leaving tonight at 2AM returning in the wee hours Sunday morning.
The official color for the NC contingent is PURPLE.....unfortunately, I have almost no purple attire. Just not my color.....
So, I headed to the Pittsboro PTA Thrift Store the other day and found a purfect purple fleece! For $3!
They March organizers have cautioned us that we will be on our feet from 8AM to possibly 6PM - and we're not allowed to have backpacks.
So, I decided that some LARGE pockets inside of the fleece are in order for me to stash a bottle of water, some nuts, a map and such.
I just took some black cotton cloth I had in my sewing kit and made some patch pockets.
Double-stitched them to make sure they don't rip out.
For some unknown reason, I had a spool of purple thread leftover from some project that I don't remember 30 years ago! You can hardly tell that the pockets are sewn in this photo!
I even changed out my wrist band on my Garmin exercise watch to match!! Thanks Robert!
Here's all the stuff I'm taking on the bus - neck pillow to sleep, hopefully, snacks, some Goodies powders and Bendryl, just in case, a toothbrush for in the morning on the bus, etc.....
Oh, and I've done as the organizers suggested- I've written the Legal Aid phone number on my arm just in case I need to be bailed out of jail!!
Should be an interesting time - exercising my right to speak my mind by participation!
