The last few days have been incredibly stressful for many. Although it appears to be heading towards a positive ending, positive is relative given the bigoted and hate filled idiot remains until January. With all the ups and downs of the election results, I did enjoy seeing more of Jon Ossoff on my TV screen.
Ossoff with John Lewis
I have been following the Democratic nominee for the 2020 Georgia Senate for awhile now, and in addition to being incredibly adorable, he is also a political breath of fresh air. Although he didn't win his race, he's not out out of the running as it looks like there'll be a run-off in January. If you've been on social media at all this week, you know I'm not the only one drawn towards the former investigative journalist turned politician.

Paul Wood wasn't the only member of the Warrington Wolves who stripped off for two charity calendars in 2011 and 2013. The images in the piece, with the garden theme, are from the 2013 edition. The whole rugby team, who appeared in that years Challenge Cup final pitched in. Some of the players included Wood, Chris Hill, Micky Higham, Tyrone McCarthy and Wood.
The team bared all, well, almost all, for the calendar to raise money and awareness for The Rett Syndrome Research Trust UK. This is the second time that many of the Wolves have stripped off to help and they seem to be getting more and more comfortable. I tried to identify most of the players, but given it was 2013, many have changed their looks a little.
Some of my favorite shots were the images with the lucky garden gnome, who had the job of covering the wolves dangly bits. Thankfully, the gnome wasn't big enough, or needed, to cover the many fine rears on display.
Thank to MichaelAndrews73a and his incredible Calendar Men Site for inspiration, and the images:
