Monday Pet Costumes Open Comments

If you and/or your family are out and about on Halloween, don’t leave little Fido or Fluffy out of the fun!

You have to humiliate them as much as possible.

Mmmmmm…. Crispy.

Chili Weenie.

Chihuataco.

Skoooooooonk.

My brothers-in-law did this one once. Except in reverse. They were painting the patio furniture and were not happy about it. Enter Yellow Hair’s fluffy white poodle.

I like this one.

There’s no need to fear! Underdog Wonderdog is here!

Many more here.

Thursday Ghosts of Wars Past Open Comments

Dutch historical expert Jo Teeuwisse found some old photographs in a local flea market. When she printed copies, she found that they were street scenes that looked familiar, but from a different time.

Armed with those prints, she sought out the original locations and photographed them from the same vantage points. She then superimposed the old photos onto the new, providing us with a memorial of sorts into the events of WWII in those locations, but with ghostly images of the soldiers instead of their more corporeal selves.
