Jan usually attends the weekly peace vigil in Gualala, where citizens decided to be part of the Point Arena Fourth of July parade in a "puppies for peace" group along with the local Humane Society. Our puppy, Hugo, was invited, so Jan and I went down to join in the Point Arena parade, held Sunday the 6th. At the assembly point a man was carrying a couple of Vote Mike Thompson signs. He told me the Congressman was there to be in the parade. Eventually I found Mike and asked if I could take his picture. He assented and his aide offered to take my picture along with Mike. So here are pictures of Jan and Hugo, Mike, me with Mike, and a couple of other shots from before the parade. I regret I don't have a shot of the entire Puppies for Peace contingent; it's great to see so many dogs willing to do their part for a peaceful world. Peace Pins are from PeacefulJewelry
