After my gig for a special family in Merrimac MA, it was less than an hour over to Bernie’s campaign office opening event in Nashua, New Hampshire. That my schedule happened to allow this is a miracle for which I will always be grateful.

After changing from sweaty juggler costume into favorite Bernie T, I had to bring the bunnies. (Way too hot to leave them in car).


Naturally the folks at the media table were all too happy to be joined by these two Bernie fans.

He spoke for 18 minutes during which I couldn’t quell the excitement in my hands while I live-streamed on Facebook.

A couple different reporters interviewed me; one from The American Prospect Magazine and one from “CBS News online.”

THEN I was served (my favorite flavor Cherry Garcia) Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream by Ben Cohen himself!
