This one is freaking awesome. Reminds me of when my English Sheepdog used to walk with me to the bus stop to hang out and play with the neighborhood kids and then head home when the bus scooped us up.

13. Calvin and Hobbes added.


I knew an 86-year-old man (who died over a year ago) with a similar experience.  He grew up on a farm with an outhouse and, of course, no street lights. His dog would meet him at night when he returned from school after activities there.  He'd grab onto the dog, who would lead him back to the house in the pitch dark.

VOTING Update: Snoopy closing in on the leader, Michelle Jenneke, and Psycho and Winnie the Poo get votes! (I still haven't voted)

Not a gif but a video.  My favorite Led Zeppelin song and I'm not a LZ fan. My roommate in college was a fan of theirs...and Rush...though I don't have a favorite Rush song.


When I was in college, we used to say that was off their new album.

Gene Kelly moving up on the inside.

When Ron decided he wanted to become a dancer, his dad called the best dancer he knew, Gene Kelly, for recommendations on which dance company Ron should try for.

I edited the poll to allow changing your vote.

N2P, let me know if you have objection.

I was going to suggest it.  I found in another poll that the Change Vote option only works one time and then disappears.

Now with a commanding lead:
9. Michelle Jenneke Doing Cool Stuff in the Rain
(Taken at age 17, Australian women’s medley relay final,
Aug 2010 Singapore Youth Games. It went viral on the Internet.
She was a 2013 SI swimsuit model at age 19)

Another one of the then-17-year-old, from the same event:

She did NOT qualify for the Olympics

Taylor Swift.  She gave a free concert years ago at Ireton High School in Alexandria VA.  They won a contest where the high school that sent in the most Ipod votes got a free concert.


Swift has done this at least a couple of times.
Last year it was Harvey Mudd College.


Quote
before she got really famous

In 2009, her first two CDs has already been out and the huge singles "You Belong with Me," "Fifteen" and "Fearless." were already released.
2009 was also the year of  the MTV Video Music Award incident with Kanye West.
Switft was already real big by then.
