Good Thursday morning to you all. We are getting close to the weekend, so I am feeling good. Yesterday you remember our Suffragettes got arrested for protesting at the white house. Today, we have a photo of one of them actually in jail. The conditions really look to be pretty miserable in there. I guess t was somewhat common for these women to get arrested during protests.
Last nigh I was reading all the comments from the last few days. After reading them, I went up and went to bed. Funny thing is I had this crazy dreams all night that SmartGirl had joined the Suffragettes movement, or maybe they had joined her movement. I could not figure out exactly what was going on, but the dream looked something like this. SmartGirl is the one in the middle.


  1. A little digital editing there.....



  2. That's hilarious.

    It's curious they are standing on boards, and Ms. Right seems to be standing on a blanket, too.

    Could that be insulation from the cold pavement? I trust the massive thermos contains only hot tea or coffee.

  3. PJM You're too funny!

    Go Smartgirl.

  4. PJM:

    Yes, that is definitely ME in that photo!!! Thank you so much for posting such an accurate and flattering picture. I’m assuming that you contacted my husband to obtain an image of my face. I especially love the WWII reference on the sign.

    A lot of people have crazy dreams about me, but they’re usually nightmares (at least that’s what I’ve been told). I’m proud to say it’s an attribute that I’ve been cultivating for years.

    I wish I were really standing outside the White House with that sign right this very minute. The suffragettes and I would have gotten along well.

  5. Those women were very brave to go to jail for their cause in that era.

    I wonder if there were any female attorneys to defend them.

    I LOVE the banner!
    Thanks for making my day!

  7. Does anyone know how long they had to spend in jail ? The place looks pretty Hard Core..

  8. In this day and age, it seems almost incomprehensible that these women would be jailed for exercising their right to protest and freedom of speech. The jail looks awful! Certainly was the keep 'em barefoot and pregnant mentality of that time period.

  9. Surely I was not the only one to see the flag's content! That is pretty direct message to our beloved President, PJM. Very thoughtful and entirely appropriate.

  10. Paul - Judging from SmartGirl1953's comment, you are unaware of her actual appearance. Wouldn't an additional edit of the image have been appropriate, in order to obscure her face? I'm thinking something along the lines of a hood...

    Wow, you REALLY hit the old nail right on the head!!!

    Everyone and anyone who is less than thrilled with the current president and his policies must be a racist member of the KKK!!! It’s all because he’s HALF black!!!

    That’s IT - play that race card once again. Honestly, can’t you think of something more original?
