I'll Be Seeing You


Our picture elicited (ohhh, big word) plenty of captions this week. I tell ya, the quality of people's comments just get better and better.


For example...

Jeremy from We Took The Bait saw his way clear to offer:

On a very special episode of Family Matters, Laura and Karl confront Steve Urkel about his excessive use of crystal meth.

My sparring partner from earlier this week Me-Me King, who runs one of these weekly caption contests herself, showed she wasn't only a good teacher but a great pupil (get it? get it?) with:

Jiminy was pissed when the other kids nicknamed him Cricket.

And it wouldn't be a Moooooog caption contest without a caption from Moooooog. He stopped just before he went blind with:

Where Chinese animators get their inspiration.

But our winner this week is Jim, from over on my FaceBook page. He made a spectacle of himself with:

Good God these underwear must be three sizes too small.


Way to go, bro. Oops, the cat's out of the bag. In the interests of full disclosure, Jim's my brother. He recently celebrated his birthday and this way I don't have to buy him a present! Instead he gets to be exposed on my blog! Happy Birthday, Jim. Now go put some clothes on.

That's just how MY eyes look when my underwear is too tight!

There's nothing like exposing our families on our blogs... revenge after all those years! Happy Birthday to Jim!

Way to go Jim! My dad always used to say, "If you can't say anything nice about somebody, then say nothing at all." Okay dad, sure. That guy in the glasses is a total freakazoid!

Cat Lady: Too much information, CL.

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.
