I drove down to Algonquin for the noon to 1 PM TEA (Taxed Enough Already) Party.
There were about seventy people present waving flags and holding up signs…not counting a couple of kids.
This youngster was teething on his American Flag pole, but I didn’t get my camera clicking fast enough to0 catch the action. Mom gave it back to the child and I got the above shot.
Several cameramen were recording the event.
Christopher Hankins from the Daily Herald had a really expensive lens. He got distracted taking photos of the demonstration from west of Harrison Street. I don’t know if the truck blew its horn or was just noisy as it stopped for the light. Photos he took can be found here.
3 o’clock is when the Crystal Lake TEA Party demonstration starts. It will be along Route 14, starting at Main Street.
It will run until about 6:30.
Before or after, if you want a good deal, the nearby Colonial Cafe is holding a fund raiser for the Children’s Center for Autism in Cary. Pancakes will be sold for a penny, but you have to buy a drink, too. A box is at the cash register so patrons can make a contribution.
Don’t like pancakes. (I bought my favorite salad, a citrus tango salad, today.)
Colonial has 50 cent ice cream cones. Not big ones; just one scoop.
Enough to satisfy my hunger for sweets today.
