I had grand delusions about going to the Climate March, and then grauwulf had a speaking engagement in Canada, and the EV caravans were focused on carpooling so you could sell your passengers on EV technology (um... did I mention we got a Volt? I didn't, did I? Someone rear-ended the little red car (Honda Insight) & we went from "well, technically we have 2 cars so we don't need another one" to grauwulf picking out the car he wanted in about a week. It is pretty cool and has magic key technology. And then we bought the 13-acre woods, so April was for spending all the money...) and the nearest metro station to us was closed & the train down had big warnings about how they expected to be mobbed, and I've been having allergies and/or the sick the others had last weekend that kept us from going to the Science March, and I wasn't quite up for that much adventure with a 4-year-old Megatherium in tow.

So the dolls are having a Climate Rally on the front steps. Boxes were opened. (Ask me next week how many of the secondhand barbie collection makes it back into the boxes...) We would have had more, but I ran out of clothes. Barbie clothes are the Megatherium's yard sale quest for the year, so there perhaps next time we can do better.

(The sign behind the horse says "Forget flying cars; why can't I get a pick-up truck with decent gas mileage?")

Improvements for future rounds include more glitter pens, and getting sign-making help from a few more people who can actually write. (The Megatherium had a sign which didn't make it out here saying "Save the Weather please / thank you" but she only wrote the first "s" herself.) Also we have a strange lack of ocean-related signage, & probably a couple other holes I haven't noticed yet.
