A Future to Believe In

Today Bernie Sanders is coming to town!!

Getting dressed, Gavin is all about his new barbarian viking beard hat.  I can’t explain it.  You’d have to ask him.  He LOVES it.

For a button from my collection he chose “Feel the Bern” for one horn, followed by this other one:

“Mom this is the symbol for female, right?”

“And the fist means ‘Resist’?”

“And the rainbow stands for, um…?”

“Gay rights.”

“Yeah, that’s me.  Just, any equal rights; that’s what I want to stand for.  OK, let’s go!”


We also enjoyed rocking our corresponding Kaepernick t-shirts:

Note:  Gavin fully understands the importance of showing respect to elders and elected officials… and ALSO that extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures.  In the case of this unspeakably grotesque, unacceptable racist bigot masquerading as a human in the White House… all bets are off.   The Chump has earned no respect and we owe none.

Having arrived at the venue early, here is my boy sitting on the tin barrel we brought as disposable furniture, enjoying his hot chocolate,  reading The New Yorker:


He literally wants to be a barbarian in a business suit for Halloween.



Either way I’m a little proud; not gonna lie.



He also insisted I try on his hat.  Who’m I to deny?
