Since I used a camera and not an iphone, etc. it took awhile to get my photos processed to share. We spent time with relatives and friends on the way home. I have never uploaded photos, so here goes...


IOWA STRAW POLL -- August 13, 2011

Wake up at 5:00 AM at niece's home in Altoona, IA. Drive to Iowa State grounds in Ames, Iowa and contact Shelley on phone. "Where's the tent?"

Only a few people on the grounds at 7:00 AM but its a beautiful morning.

Huck PAC early arrivals to help Shelley and Randy Davis set up the tent. Randy painted the designs at the top of the tent, as well as provided tables, chairs, signs, etc. Shelley brought the things for the tables.

Hogan Gidley is to the right.

Our youngest helpers stayed all day and were great help! They passed out lots of HuckPAC information cards and helped at the tables.

So glad to finally meet janelles and get one of her famous hugs! She provided the red, white, and blue balloons for the corners of the tent.

Justgrace poses with Santorum. He seems to be a friend of Huckabee, a kindly and pro-life family man, father of seven.

More hard workers, Steadfast, janelles, and kelli...

The books by Huckabee were laid out on the table and were given away later in a drawing. Aren't the tables pretty?

QVA, here are the Smug Mugs from Iowa I promised. :mrgreen:

Wish you could have been here among us, as well as BD Bopper, Granny T, and Huckbeliever and others.

Team assembling; ice on water bottles in the bucket; tables ready for the gates to open.

Yes, that is Governor Huckabee's wife, Janet in the back. She dropped by the tent early and greeted us for the Governor, told us he'd be by later, and thanked us for helping.

Janet Huckabee stops by to greet us and graciously pose for pictures. (Don't you wonder how many times the Huckabee's have had pictures taken of them and if it is not rather tiresome? I admit to being something of a shutterbug.)

Janet Huckabee poses for a photo with Steadfast.

It has been a busy couple hours getting ready for what we did not realize would be such a press of people coming by. There were mostly fans, along with reporters that would take closeups of our tables, signs, etc. and only a few unwelcome guests. I counted a moth, two lady bugs, and a couple of interesting characters. And when the Governor stopped by around 10 AM, things really started hopping. The reporters were following...


Now I will take a break. There are lots more pictures if you want to see them. I'm sure you actually want to see the Governor!

Great stuff, thanks for posting these!

The times are winter, watch, a world undone:
They waste, they wither worse; they as they run
Or bring more or more blazon man’s distress.
And I not help. Nor word now of success:
All is from wreck, here, there, to rescue one—
Work which to see scarce so much as begun
Makes welcome death, does dear forgetfulness.
Or what is else? There is your world within.
There rid the dragons, root out there the sin.
Your will is law in that small commonweal…

Others want a free book and fill out a registration for a drawing that takes place about every twenty minutes.

The bag of names for the book drawing is filling up! Just think of all the people who have stopped by already!

Our HuckPAC volunteers are busy helping people sign up for email updates and the book drawing.

Shelley also has people handing out information cards about Huck PAC. And the black rectangle you see has, on the front, a list of the 2010 Huck PAC endorsements. I enjoy telling people that almost 80% of these Hucakbee endorsed candidates won their elections!

Around 10:00 A.M., Governor Mike Huckabee stops by our tent! He listens as supporters tell him why he should run for President. America needs him!
