I’ve mentioned before how most of our dogs have not had the clothes-wearing gene. The dogs that win photo contests and costume contests obviously have this gene. Not all of them are purse dogs either.

Axel can be convinced to wear a t-shirt, and someday I may be thankful for this fact if he ever needs minor surgery and thus a barrier to keep him away from the stitches for a few days.

I don’t think there is anything that can convince him to look good in a t-shirt, though. By the time I can get a camera focused, it’s always riding up or pulled down too tightly. It’s still sort of cute in an embarrassing-your-large-dog kind of way. But he won’t be winning any contests in the foreseeable future either!

The title is from Lewis Carroll’s “Through the Looking Glass,” of course. Okay, okay. I admit I had to look it up–I was going to say it was from “Alice in Wonderland.”

What happened to Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and Tumblr just being fun? Twitter changed the look of its profile pages back in September. I still haven’t fixed mine to add a header image. In fact, I never got around to adjusting the width of my left-side graphic either. Same with the other social media sites. By the time I get around to making them look slick, the rules have changed again.

I used to really enjoy doing that kind of stuff. I don’t know when it started feeling like work.

The love for fallen CFD Captain Herbert “Herbie” Johnson is evident in every photo from today’s funeral. The support and strength from the Chicago Fire Department, Chicago Police Department, the community, and from brother and sister firefighters from all across North America is truly amazing to see.

It occurred to me that the only times I have seen Dan in his Class As (dress uniform) is for CFD LODD funerals. I wish there were some happy occasions to associate, but so far that has not been so.

The chrysanthemums came back a little later than last year and I think they will be leaving a little later as well.

What we thought was “just a few” green onions added to the pot ended up choking out quite a lot of the chrysanthemums. We weren’t sure they would even be back. And in fact, none of the white ones returned. But the purple ones powered through and prevailed.
