If you are a fan of Downton Abby -- and if you remember and loved paper dolls from your childhood (I always liked them better than real dolls) -- you can get a fix before next season here at Vulture. I downloaded my set of 4 paper dolls to use as background on the computer (plus I admit I saved a copy just in case someday I actually want to play paper dolls again).
Then, on Facebook this picture popped up -- and since the dogs get to spend Christmas with a cat, this one made me laugh out-loud. Wolfie, who lost some control toward the end, would really have appreciated it.
I loved the article about the Olympians who rescued pets, especially the story about Michael Phelps. I had always seen him as kind of arrogant, but then I read about his dogs. Changed my whole cheering structure for the swim meets.
I adored the interview with Henrik Rummel about his penis. He managed to make the whole controversy so funny. The other Olympic controversies were not nearly as good. I was glad to see that the althetes managed to keep it all in perspective though. Read the Rummel interview-- it will crack you up.
The Gabby Douglas hair controversy shows just how ignorant we can still be. She seemed to handle it okay but I was frustrated for her -- her hair was neat and clean, nothing wrong with it at all.
Then there is this lovely photo about a man who helps his 19 year old rescued German Shepherd find some comfort every night. This one will bring tears to your eyes. It's just a lovely story. This is a copyrighted photo.
Finally, if you're as sick of summer as we are here in the heartland, check out this little video of winter scenes. The music is lovely, too.
