Women of Main Street

I adore Main Street, U.S.A.  You probably knew that already.  The characters of Main Street always make me smile and I love interacting with them and watching them perform.  I only wish I had a better singing voice and good improvisational skills so I could join them one day!

One afternoon, I came as close to joining them as I probably ever will - we met the Mayor and took a
couple of pictures with him and some of his fellow citizens.  The Women of Main Street were milling around and even the Saxophone Quartet was ready to perform.  Obviously, something good was about to happen.  Noah was getting fussy, but I couldn't resist and set up shop for a couple of minutes!

The Mayor, the Honorable Christopher George Weaver, stepped up to announce that he would be running for reelection!  I tried finding out how long he has been the mayor, but I'm pretty sure that it's not a recent thing!  I'll have to remember to ask him next time I meet up with him!

Then, as they were all breaking out in song, the women decided they would take it no longer and broke out into song - Women Unite - time for women to have a vote (Mary Poppins).  I tried to get the whole spiel on video, but I didn't get the very beginning and it's definitely in two parts!  Make sure you make it to the end of the second video (I won't tell anyone if you skip to the end!) to see a special guest star!

The whole gang!

The women!
