First, a housekeeping note: I just updated my template tonight. In the process, some of my newer links disappeared. I believe I restored them all, but if I’ve left yours out (or if you’d like me to add a link now), just let me know.
Our dog Boswell has a brother named Merritt, who is quite a bit smaller. Merritt, who lives with my parents, was kind enough to lend Boswell his red sweater for Christmas pictures, but it turned out to be way too small for him. It did, however, fit Onslow purr-fectly. (You know I couldn’t resist that.)
Speaking of pictures, a high school student in Rhode Island posed for his senior yearbook photo wearing chain mail and carrying a sword. (He’s a member of the Society for Creative Anachronism.) The principal, however, claimed that the sword violated the school’s “zero tolerance” weapons policy, despite the fact that the school’s own mascot, a patriot, totes a weapon. The matter is now in court.
Personally, I say let the kid have his sword. Trust me, it’s a lot less scary than the pastel, checked, or plaid polyester suits the senior boys are wearing in my high school yearbook.
