For the record.

Here in Elmira, New York, we have a little scene every Thursday night, in downtown Wisner Park. Each week there is a self-professed Christian group with signs and chanting, protesting gay marriage. That's their official purpose.

Across the way is another group protesting the protesters. Some of my coworkers are there, because they don't want gays to think that all Elmirans hate them.

At that hour I am working, and don't join the protesters. When I am not working, I live in a nice little neighborhood, where we are nearly all married couples.

Some of our couples are gay. A few years ago, we lost a few couples to old age and death. Some of those couples were gay. We love our neighbors and miss the ones who passed on.

If I were not working nights, I know which protesters I would join, or at least visibly support.

Street Painting is coming!

Update: I really missed it, but family comes first. I'm told the artwork was astounding, some of it virtually 3-D. Let's hope that the photographer posts his shots.

Check out the link in the comments section below!

Our downtown is usually pretty quiet, but today the
street painters are going to make it quite pretty.

I will take the camera there and have a look...

Way too hot today

...but on the 4th I took Ellie to visit the River Access site on Grove Street. The grass is very high. She leaped like a dolphin on the waves. I took some video but just looks like I didn't hold the camera right. If she were larger it might have looked better.

But then it wouldn't be the HuggaMutt.
