So I get up really early this morning, have my coffee and head out to The Villages, to get my tickets for the Sarah Palin event this Sunday. I knew they were going to start handing them out at 9:00 a.m., and so I thought if I got there by 8 - 8:15, I'd get in line fairly early - NOT!
OMG there were already close to 5000 people there lined up! Once the line started moving, it went quickly though. There were tables set up where we had to go sign our name, address, phone number and such and how many tickets we wanted. They limited each person to 4 tickets, and I got two; one for me and one for Bill.
This is just so exciting for me! This is historical that we have our first female in the Republican Party who has been nominated for Vice President, and who knows - maybe one day she'll step up the position of our first female President!
On my way home, I stopped by the Army recruiter's office to see if they had any "Proud Parent of an Army Solider" kinda stuff, and the Sgt. there said they were out, but would have bumper stickers and such next week. Well I kinda had a feeling that they wouldn't have anything like "ARMY MOM" t shirts or anything of the like, so I went by Wal-Mart and picked up two t shirts - one red, and another in Army drab brown, and a couple of packs of iron on letters so I can make myself a couple of shirts to support not only my son and the others who are so bravely serving our country, but for support for the Republican Party as well.
I really want to be able to get photos to post on here after the event Sunday, but after seeing how large the crowd was there this morning, I'm not sure if I'll be able to get close enough to get any decent shots.
For those of you who know me - you know I'm little, and can and have scooched my way to the front of the line many times at concerts and I can't see anything if anyone taller than 5'1" stands in front of me, and I'm a pretty determined woman - so time will tell if I'm once again able to make my way close to the front of an event that will be competely packed out!
