This is Mary getting ready for the Women's March. I sent her my scarf to wear on my behalf, and the hat is from Michelle, and the jacket is one Judy (sister) likes.

|On the subway -- this is Barb with the sign|
|Quick stop down memory road at the IRS where Mary and Barb were coworkers -- yikes, back in the 1970s!|
For the next group, Mary writes:
The first sign says "Women are the wall and Trump will pay"
Just realized these are in reverse chronological order, if that matters. I can't overstate how amazing this was.
Wow. Lots of great people too, from Oregon,, Florida, Maryland, New Jersey, Canada...
In sum, Mary says:
It was a very positive, uplifting, hopeful crowd. A very small percentage of the signs were tasteless or crude or maybe a little angry, but overall it was so so calm and enthusiastic. It was a great feeling to be part of the crowd, it felt almost like a pep rally. Chants of love over hate, things like that. I am so glad we went and I was happy to have Pat's scarf and Michelle's hat and Judy's jacket 😁👍🚸
AND HOME AGAIN:
Barb says: Mary and Teddy relaxing after the march. Milo no where to be found!
