Just In Case You Were Wondering

We had captions by the case this week.  Booze just seems to bring the best out in people.  It was really hard to narrow this down.  It was even hard choosing the runners-up.  But after a few silly-pops the task got much easier.

Newcomer Dave "Loose Cannon" Wills toasted us with:

What's more important, love?  Me holding all the beer in both hands to look like a gentleman OR me holding your hand lovingly and being a gentleman.


Anonymous Whitey - I think I know this guy, he likes Corona - poured forth with:

Yep, the missus could always hold her beer better.


And Nooter capped things off with:

No longer marketable as a sultry prostitute, Venus is earning cash nowadays by renting out her services as a wheelbarrow.


Our winner?  Leeuna uncorked a good one with:



Don't judge me!  She's carrying the lite beer


Way to go Leeuna.  You have the distinction of hangin' with the dufus!  Congratulations...and pass me and Whitey a cold one.

I guess they only carry what they can drink. I base that on the relative size of their asses. Way to go Leeuna!

Hey, I won? I really won? I didn't see this until now. (Tuesday night)I think I need to keep up with my bloggy friends a little better. I seem to be slipping. Thanks and I will display my badge with pride.

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.
