It's Santa Time!

Awwww. Children Love Santa Claus!

Actually this is probably a good thing. They love the idea of Santa more than some fat stranger in loud clothes.
(and in the case of the fifth one down . . .well this Santa has had a bad day I believe. OR he's half in his santa bag if ya know what I mean)

Spiritual Miracles In a Dog's Ass

Went to my first Atheist meetup group last night at a bar in the Loop.
Beforehand I stopped off for Free Tuesdays at the Museum of Contemporary Art which is about a three iron from the Hancock Building. It was snowing big flakes as i walked the eight blocks from the El stop. Got inspired at the MCA after seeing some Calder work and also a group show of a bunch of Italians. After the museum I felt the need to prove I was a tough guy and walked to the bar in the Loop
(1.7 miles) instead of taking the El . At this point it was coming down pretty good and the wind along Michigan Avenue was whipping things up nicely. At one point, outside the Tribune building alongside the river, I actually had to stop and turn my back to the wind, just to take a break from it all for a moment. The Windy City. Sheesh.
Anyway, I met some good like minded folks at the bar and was shown a nice photo online I thought I'd share.
