This gives you the big picture; not everyone in the chairs is vegging, though.  We got a lot of good conversation passing out our fact-full fliers.  The Mom of the kids on the left picked up the photographer’s dropped pack of fliers and thanked the Grannies for being there.

We were getting some media attention. The young man had just had his picture taken with Edith and her sign, was on his way to being interviewed.
