Well, here’s one way of getting an Oscar pic on the blog

Wednesday, Nov 14, 2018

* I’ve told you about my friend Rob Werden several times

Rob is a farmer, sportsman, entrepreneur, former high school agriculture teacher, current director of the Madison County Career and Technical Education System and a very good friend of mine who was born and raised in rural Madison County.

Rob lives near Prairietown, the home of the “World’s Fair.”

As we’ve already discussed, Rob ran for Madison County Regional Superintendent this year to replace retiring incumbent Bob Daiber. You’ll recall that Daiber ran for governor as a Democrat.

I didn’t bother to check on his race for some weird reason, but Rob defeated his Democratic opponent 52-48. Must’ve been those nifty yard signs.

* Or maybe it was because Oscar fully endorsed his ol’ buddy. Here’s a silly pic of the two of them…

…Adding… Caption?

  2. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 10:47 am:

    How is it possible he never had a senior job at IDOC?

    Warden Warden.

    Get it? Forget it.

    Hey Rich, your Republicanism is showing.


  4. - Montrose - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 10:53 am:

    This really should be a caption contest.

    “Werden & Oscar 2020 - A new day is on the horizon”

    Amazing Pic

    “Dawn”


  7. - Rich Miller - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 10:54 am:

    Montrose, your wish is my command. This is now a caption contest.


  8. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 10:55 am:

    “Hey… Is that guy getting towed?”


  9. - Montrose - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 10:58 am:

    “- Rich Miller - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 10:54 am:

    Excellent. I really need to screen shot this for future reference.

    Werden & Oscar
    For God

    I see trees of green, red roses too
    I see them bloom for me and you
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world
    I see skies of blue and clouds of white
    The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
    And I think to myself what a wonderful world
    The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
    Are also on the faces of people going by
    I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do

    Oscar the dog, shown here with friend Rob Werden, today announced his candidacy for Mayor of Chicago, joining the 41,087 others who’ve done likewise. Oscar predicted that he will do especially well with voters in Chicago’s “collar” counties.

  17. - Al - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 11:04 am:

    Ahh, the smell of a BBQ scented breeze.


  18. - Montrose - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 11:06 am:

    “No, Oscar. We didn’t miss the full eclipse. Just keep watching.”


  19. - Reality Check - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 11:07 am:

    Rauner’s meltdown gives off a lovely light, doesn’t it?


  20. - wordslinger - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 11:09 am:

    The hungry scan the horizon for any sign of Miller and those sliders he promised.


  21. - Wensicia - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 11:12 am:

    To infinity and beyond…


  22. - Jocko - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 11:12 am:

    Now that Rob and Oscar have re-enacted the famous “Titanic” scene…I’m curious which movie they’ll take on next.


  23. - Name Withheld - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 11:16 am:

    When criminals in this world appear,
    and break the laws that they should fear,
    and frighten all who see or hear.
    The cry goes out, both far and near,
    for Werden and Oscar!


  24. - 47th Ward - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 11:19 am:

    Harry Truman once said, “if you want a friend in politics, get a dog.”

    So I stole my friend’s dog.

    Mike Bost tells this story another way…


  25. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 11:21 am:

    I’ll tell ya, - 47th Ward - is on fire today… yikes, you’re way ahead of the curve. Well played.

    “I wish I could fly too, Oscar, all the time”

    Suddenly a whiff of bacon was in the wind.


  27. - Huh? - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 11:28 am:

    Why is Miller using gasoline to light that leaf pile on fire?


  28. - Oswego Willy - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 11:29 am:

    When you walk through a storm
    Hold your head up high
    And don’t be afraid of the dark
    At he end of the storm
    Is a golden sky
    And the sweet silver song of a lark

    Walk on through the wind
    Walk on through the rain
    Tho’ your dreams be tossed and blown
    Walk on, walk on
    With hope in your heart
    And you’ll never walk alone
    You’ll never walk alone


  29. - Huh? - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 11:30 am:

    Illinois’ bright future dawns.

  33. - A guy - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 11:41 am:

    Maybe it could be the cover of a Christmas Album? With a song that starts with the lyrics; Do you see what I see…

    I’m still working on it, but I’ll get back to you with more lyrics soon as I process this totally original idea.


  34. - A guy - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 11:50 am:

    “What’s so great about Iowa? It looks the same from here”.


  35. - Streator Curmudgeon - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 11:52 am:

    Oscar: “America, the Land of Opportunity!”


  36. - Streator Curmudgeon - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 11:54 am:

    Oscar: “Mount Rushmore? I’d be happy if they carved us on a tree!”


  37. - Streator Curmudgeon - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 11:55 am:

    Oscar: “You mean like Rich does when he looks in the mirror?”


  38. - Streator Curmudgeon - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 11:58 am:

    Oscar: “Rob, have you ever heard of Milk Bones?”


  43. - Matts - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 12:20 pm:

    I suspect this lovely photo will find its self being considered as a graphics option for an anti-hate speech campaign from a powerful pro-feline organization.

  46. - Huh? - Wednesday, Nov 14, 18 @ 12:47 pm:

    We’re going to have to back up further from the dumpster fire of the 1.4% administration.

    And the rockets’ red glare
    The bombs bursting in air
    Gave proof through the night
    That our flag was still there
    O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave
