We often get asked, "what kind of dogs are they?".
We say, "greyhounds". To-day, that started the dialogue.
"Are they pit bulls?". Well, that was the first time for that guess. As anyone that has been in a class, or gone to a meeting, or has seen a press conference, it is common to be asked the same question again.
"No, they are greyhounds".
"They're black and white like my dog [who is a pit bull]".
"You with the camera, what's up?".

I'm with Charlie
Lakewood has an ordinance against pit bulls. A woman fought it and lost. The dog's name is Charlie. Many people think this is not alright, and that breed specific restrictions are not permitted under Ohio law.

I read the diocese's press release, and they quoted other parts of his homily, and emphasised another aspect of the first apostles. People downtown are still in the mold and mode of the previous bishop. I was told by a priest, Bishop Nelson told the downtown staff that they exist for the parishes, and not the other way around.

Gethsemane Evangelical Lutheran Church. Lakewood. Choir Window. 1949?Representational Protestant and Catholic stain glass are often different. I find something new in some Protestant churches. Different denominations will put their particular history's leaders and heroes on glass, so Francis Asbury might appear in a Methodist church, and not much elsewhere. People would ask who is he? Most of the Old Testament is recognised by Protestants, and Old Testament personages are more often represented in Protestant churches than in Catholic ones. Sometimes, the person is obscure. There are a lot of names in the Old Testament, and some are not familiar to 99+% of people. Some names sound like Old Testament names, even if they are not familiar.
Catholic churches often have a St. Cecilia window, or painting in the choir loft. King David is sometimes found, angels more often. The window, supra, is entitled "O come let us sing unto the Lord". There is David with crown and harp, king and psalmist—familiar. Choir director, Chenaniah? The picture tells the story. Of all the passages in the Bible, who remembers this one?
And Chenaniah, chief of the Levites, was for song: he instructed about the song, because he was skilful. — 1 Chronicles xv. 22. KJV
And Chonenias chief of the Levites, presided over the prophecy, to give out the tunes: for he was very skillful. — 1 Chronicles xv. 22. Douay-Rheims 1899 America

People like to pose for fotos by strangers in parades. Above is Dennis Bellisario, Christoforo Colombo, of Saint Rocco's. A larger group portrait was not available, i had been looking for him to take a picture.
There was another Columbus, he was busy before the parade; during the parade, when he passed by, my battery died, and before i could replace the battery, no good foto; and while i was changing the foto, someone wanted to pass me a campaign paper. There were a lot of judges in the parade. Two Repukes who want to be the next governor were also there. One blocked a foto of a car dressed as Pepino, the Italian Mouse.
Here is my hint—when viewing a parade, go near the beginning. Usually, this is less crowded, the marchers are not fatigued, and you can be on your way home before everyone has seen the parade. This may not be advisable if there is a post parade event which you like.
While i was mingling with parade marchers before hand, someone told me there were protestors. I had not been in the area they grouped at. I just saw WKYC-TV3 mention them.

There were a few bands, and some good fotos with them.
