The Famous Occoquan Tea Party
The Crows celebrated the Fourth of July in their own inimitable way. For starters they celebrated on the 24th instead of the 4th. Wini, our QM and Fearless Leader, was quoted as saying that this was to avoid the crowds but this reporter suspects that it simply took that long to get the girls to agree on anything. The one thing that everyone agreed on was that we were definitely not going to be throwing any tea into the river.
We decided instead to convert those wrong thinkers at The Occoquan Coffee House into good American Tea Drinkers. The locals quickly saw the benefits of the new regime and hidden stocks of tea were brought out for the celebration.
Was it the outrageous laughing and giggling, the girl talk, the picture taking or the Kazoo playing? No one knows but, what ever the cause, the Red coats were out and the Red Hats were in. (Honestly it probably wasn't the kazoo playing!)
