It's Wednesday, and you know what that means . . .

...Wienerdog Wednesday!!!

Source: John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum

 From the Wienerdogs in History Category:  "John F. Kennedy with "Dunker" during tour of Europe in the summer of 1937, The Hague, August 1937."

Remember the days when those who grew up in privilege also felt an obligation to serve those without? I'm not raising the Kennedys up to sainthood, but there was -- and continues to be -- something about them and their call to public service that seems far too rare in the majority of 1%-ers making headlines today. 

(And the Bush dynasty doesn't count!)


  1. I agree as well... and also agree that the Bush dynasty does not count.
    the pup is adorable!!
    good social commentary, Intelliwench. good reminders. thanks.

  2. It's too easy to mention JFK and "wiener" in the same sentence.
    Hi, Intell!

  3. I am a dollar short, but agree.

  4. Gosh, JFK looks so young. I like this Wienerdog Wednesday concept of yours. Very cool. I'm thinking of launching a Super Stamp Sunday feature on my neglected blog. Despite email, postage stamps are still being printed big time. Janis Joplin just got one of her own! Plus lots of great poets, painters, thinkers, dead presidents, etc. Anyway, thanks for the inspiration...

    1. I like the Super Stamp Sunday idea -- the cool thing about stamps is that they are accessible to all, and cover just about every topic. And who'd have thought that Janis would be on a stamp one day???


And you thought...
