4/10/13-4/18/13 Back to DC and
Fairfax County VA - 5 more days in the 'Belly of the
Cherry Blossom Festival in DC - and a NEW FIRST - BUSTED TWICE in ONE
BUSTED for the THIRD
TIME in Kingwood, WV - LIBERTY VAN THIS TIME (for 'Christmas' lights of
and BUSTED IN DC for having a
BIBLE and RAND PAUL'S BOOK on my dashboard (see pictures
On April 10, just two and a half
days since returning from Fairfax County VA and Washington DC, I am ready to
head back there.
In this short time home, I've managed
to get taxes done, catch up a couple of months of laundry (8 loads), haul 6 of
my dogs to
and from the groomers, get a new
webpage up (see my last trip here: 4/2/13 VA Court ), made a
new sign for the van (see below,
'WE STAND WITH RAND' and a bunch of other stuff. My daughter, Rose, is 25
years old today. We had her party yesterday.
The entire reason for the
previous trip (4/2) was a $30 harassment ticket received 3 days before the presidential inauguration, in January, in
The entire reason for THIS trip is
THAT one. The judge completely 'dissed' my case, would not even allow me
time to get an attorney. I did not get my
day in court, so must appeal.
And, Fairfax County's rules only allow 10 CALENDAR days to do it - so my
deadline is on TAX day, April 15. I had not
planned to go to this year's Tax Day
Tea Party in Washington DC (though I've done that in other years). As so
often, God's timing is PERFECT. Thanks
to this judge, and the rules, I will
be in DC for the Tea Party! I will leave early enough to try to find an
attorney on Friday, and have him file my appeal.
Because of the perfect timing, I will
also get to be there all weekend for the Cherry Blossom Festival. So,
besides THANKING Officer Kutz again
(who gave me this ticket), I also
THANK this judge (I will leave you to decipher
EVERY one of these tickets I've been
getting is the sort that I would NEVER EVER get if I was not driving Liberty Van
or Freedom Van..
And, it is the opinion of a couple of
my art car friends I've spoken to about this, that it is because of my
It is PURE PLAIN OLD
On my way to Washington DC, I stopped
overnight in Kingwood, WV, my new habit since they have been harassing
I've driven Liberty Van through WV for
at least 7 years, more often than not at night (due to distance from my home,
habit of being a 'night owl').
THE ONLY place in WV EITHER of my vans has EVER been harassed is in
(Kingwood), and BOTH
previous times they picked on Freedom Van (green St. Pat's lights in March,
2012, and pink Valentine's
lights in Feb. 2013).
After another FABULOUS ride up I 79
through the WV mountains, with Liberty Van and the big Eagle, it finally
happened, a little after
midnight (April 11), just outside
Kingwood. Liberty Van got ticketed
for it's RED, WHITE, and BLUE lights.
It is covered
with eagles, statue of libertys,
liberty bells, red, white and blue (and black roses to honor our Marxist president's 2nd term)
silk flowers - red, white and blue star shaped lights are the only color
that is fitting for it. Now, in addition
to having to be in Kingwood for
PINK lights on May 15, I also have to be there on May 21 for this latest one.
And looks to me like PRESTON COUNTY, WV has
a PROBLEM. I've had ZERO
problems ANYWHERE ELSE in WV, and THREE strikes in Preston County.
They are doing a GREAT
JOB of KEEPING ME ON THE ROAD,
where MANY MORE people can enjoy these award winning art
I succeeded in finding an
attorney on Friday who will handle my appeal in Fairfax, VA. I also did a
bit of cruising, on Capitol Hill
during lunch hour,
and in Fairfax. Now I have
a couple of days to 'kill' in DC, and enjoy this Cherry Blossom Festival, before
Tea Party on Monday.
No, two more days to LIVE 100%
in JOY, serving my Lord, and my country. I took a few pics Friday evening,
and more on
Saturday. The crowds and
traffic were SO thick on Saturday and Sunday, I didn't even attempt to take more
of my van,
I took some of the crowds.
I put them in a FLASH slide show below. If your system does not allow you
to see it,
As a responsible citizen, I am totally
committed to being supportive, and COOPERATIVE with ALL Constitutionally proper

NO one is paying me anything to do
anything. I'm a 'ticked off' grandma from Kentucky.
It doesn't get ANY more 'grassroots' than
that. All my projects are 100% PRIVATELY funded.
They are also about 99.9% PERSONALLY
funded. Since I am not actually 'rich', I may end
up a bag lady. I am doing what I
am CALLED to do, and using EVERY inspiration,
talent, and resource God has blessed me with. It all belongs to Him,
Liberty Van and Freedom Van are my Hosanna

The dogs are not a 'business', but a very
expensive HOBBY. We have finished,
or produced (so far) 22 AKC Champions, and

Since there is only me, and I'm on the road
so much, my older pages may be out of date,
and may not work well with newer
hardware/software/browsers. Most of the older stuff
was done with IE. I do not have the
resources to test everything with everything, so
to serve the priority of getting info up, I
am shifting to much more simple methods,
which SHOULD work with just about
anything. It may not be as 'pretty' as I could do
but given my time constraints, it's the
best I can do.
Being on the road as much as I have been
would probably be impossible, but 27 years
ago God blessed me with the most wonderful
husband, John Farley. He's a 'home body',
hates to go anywhere, but he agrees with me
about EVERY WORD I put on those vans,
and he supports my every effort. He
fixes my lights on the vans, and helps me with
technical support at home. We met
when we shared an office at IBM - he's an engineer
(retired). He holds the fort down
here, caring for kids, grandkids, and of course the dogs.
Some of the kids help me from time to time
with the vans, mostly with deconstruction,
when changing them from one season to
another. I pay them for their work, they are
not slave labor. My 6 kids range
in age from 43-18, and they are ALL AWESOME.
