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...

Relays were so much more elegant before the Kenyans got involved.

For the benefit of Stevie Wonder.

We told him they were two hot Playboy twins running.

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.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

My Back Pages - November

I know, I know, I know I should have reported in before now. But sometimes real life just gets in the way. I attempted 5 books in November. I say attempted because I slapped a big DNF (did not finish) on Neal Stephenson's Cryptonomicon. I just can't seem to get into this guy. It's the second or third of his I've given up on,

Not so the other four, starting with a biography of Stephen Stills called Change Partners. This followed by a hilarious biography of the guy responsible for National Lampoon called A Stupid and Futile Gesture - How Doug Kenney and National Lampoon Changed Comedy Forever.

I ended the month reading yet another biography, this one of the man behind Rolling Stone magazine,. It was called Sticky Fingers: The Life and Times of Jann Wenner and Rolling Stone Magazine. A fascinating read.

So last month I hit the magic number 50 I'd imagined for myself back in January. If I roll this month into my yearly total I'm at 54 books. And I still have Decem…
