From My Cold Dead Hands




Well everyone took their best shot this week.  For example, Tgoette got us in his sights with:

Merry Christmas from the Glenn Beck compound.




CatLady's arresting effort was:

Christmas is all about family, togetherness and automatic weapons.




And FreakSmack slayed me with:

The Johnson kids know one thing, if Santa thinks he can come into their house and get all kissy-kissy under the mistletoe without bringing them a Bakugan Battle Arena, then this Christmas will be his last.


But it was Moooooog who must be a charter-carrying member of the NRA.  Our winner came up with:

Charlton Heston's grandkids have a very Merry Christmas.




And so, Moooooog, at this wonderful Christmas time, you be hangin' with Dufus.  Congratulations!!!

Thanks for playing everyone and for enjoying the pics this year.  Here's to a happy New Year.

What a surprise...moooooog! Your official name for your caption contest picture should be the "Moooooog35 Not-So Memorial 1st Place Banner".

Does Moooooog do anything beside sit around making up captions and vlogs these days? How does he do it?

And I could not think of anything except.."Thank you Grandma - again"

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 …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
