The loons are in town.....

I knew the candidates were in Indy, but I did not realize they were coming to my local city of Carmel. Yesterday I was driving my son to physical therapy. I noticed lots of police cars and people walking and a few tshirt shops along the side of the road. I rolled my window down and I heard Donald Trump's voice over a speaker. I said, "Guys, I think that is Donald Trump speaking." My kids asked what was going on. I said that politicians are in town. One of my girls said, "Does that mean we buy tshirts when politicians are in town?" Ha! This is the closest I have been to a celebrity/politician.....
Unless you count the time I touched Debbie Gibson's hand at a concert.

I did not see Hilary Clinton or Ted Cruz or Larry David...... er uh Bernie Sanders.

Haha that must've been pretty exciting for you and surreal to just hear Trump talking. Bernie Sanders came here to Spokane not too long ago. My sister went to go see him and I would've gone too but had to work. Her and I also went and saw Obama when we were living in Missoula, MT and he came to the University there to speak. It was when he was running for President and he waved to my sister.

Was it still attached to her arm?

Trump spoke here at the Spokane Convention Center today. A large crowd was outside protesting against him. My sister, her son and I drove by honking in support and received a lot of cheers haha.
