The Shirt Of Shirts

My friend and prolific fellow blogger Ur-Spo is a psychiatrist. When he isn't shrinking heads, one of his hobbies is making Hawaiian shirts. I can't remember how he got the idea, but he decided to ship one of his shirts to friends around the country (and out of it); and those who wear it and post a picture will get to choose one of four organizations to which he will donate a small sum of money. Is this a great idea or what?

The shirt Ur-Spo chose is an impeccably tailored pattern of Hawaiian shirts, thus earning the name The Shirt of Shirts. I'm thrilled to be on the list of recipients.

Each Monday, Sophie comes to work with me. She is the unofficial mascot of the church library volunteers, and we have lunch with them each week. Christine (center) can't stop herself from feeding Sophie from her lunch, so I've had to supply her with doggie kibble from home. Here's a shot of us with three of my friends from the church library: Rev. Ray, Christine, and Joe.

On Wednesdays I leave Sophie at home and go downtown to volunteer at the Damien Center, Indiana's premier HIV/AIDS support center. I posed with Wes, one of the testers, and Phil, a fellow volunteer. They are really sweet guys.

When my daughter saw my outfit, she asked why I was wearing scrubs.

For the charity to receive Spo's donation, I choose his local HIV/AIDS organization. Thank you, Spo, for the honor. Who's next?

Update: Buddy Bear, the previous recipient of The Shirt, has posted an exhaustive list—with links—of all who have worn it thus far. Warning: NSFW.

Update II: The Shirt of Shirts is on its way to Richmond, VA, and Kelly of Rambling Along in Life.
