Let It Blow, Let It Blow, Let It Blow...


Oh the picture on my blog is frightful
But the captions were delightful
And since Grampa's got no place to go
Let it blow, let it blow, let it blow

Ah, nothing like a blow-up doll to inflate our spirits this time of year...

We had plenty of great captions this week.


For example, injaynesworld got me chuckling with...

Some people can just suck the life out of anything


And lotgk took a swing at things with...

Since the Tiger Woods debacle, Ernie has been working overtime to keep up with requests


And FreakSmack got good one in with...

Sure, Grandpa acted surprised to find the blow-up doll under the tree, but the man's been walking around singing "All I want for Christmas is a Porky Paulina" since mid July


Those were all good captions, folks, but it was surveygirl46 that put me over the top with...

When Bobby came downstairs the night before Christmas and caught his Grandfather sitting under the tree and "patching Patches", the mystery of what an 86 year-old man had been doing with all those boxes of viagra in his sock drawer for the last 6 months was suddenly solved.

Congratulations surveygirl, you be hangin' with dufus. Look up. Mistletoe! Merry Christmas.

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…
