Pause, Ponder and Pun

On your mark, get set...caption!

Okay, some of you guys have a great track record, coming in first place several times. It's time for an upstart to cross the finish line. Let's see if we can pass the baton to someone else this week. On the other hand, perhaps one of you previous winners can shatter the Dufus world record with a new number of wins!


See you Saturday...

Pick me! Pick me!

Looks as if Dolly Parton will take second place in the Country Music Marathon.

Martina McBride is clearly the winner in this year's Country Music Marathon. Dolly Parton places second.

I have no idea how to caption it,but I have to give those guys credit,running in heels is hard as shit.
Now the race is on and here comes pride up the back stretch
Heartaches are going to the inside
My tears are holding back, trying not to fall
My heart's out of the running
True love's scratched for another's sake
The race is on and it looks like heartaches
And the winner loses all

The Race is On ~ Don Rollins
Thanks to his unprecedented success in finding a new outfit at the annual Barneys Warehouse Sale, Frank knew that he'd won the race long before he got to the track with the other "girls."
Frank realized he'd won the 12th annual "Chicks with Sticks 5K Run for the Gloryhole" when Tom blew out his left nut on turn three and fell far behind.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …
