Renal Failure kicked things off with...

After years of ridicule Fred Crotchblaster's day of glory had finally come.

C booted a long one with...

Regret at the idea of rushing the kicker was the SECOND strongest feeling Jimmy experienced that day.

And Whitey converted with...

Everything's bigger in Texas, usually because of the swelling.

But guess who got the three-pointer?  Mooooog's back with another win this week with...

At the very last second Jimmy decides to go for two.

Way to go Moooooog.  You be hanging with Dufus!!!  Congratulations, dude.

Congrats to the Moooooogster35! He's going to need a jungle gym with all the "hanging" he does with you Nomie!

And... I kept looking for you in the crowds of last night's opening ceremonies Nomie! I thought for sure you would be holding a huge poster sign: Hiya Quirky!

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 …

 Lust and Wonder - Aug…

I Do

It was noon. The sun shone brightly in the sky. Birds chirped merrily in the trees. The sounds of traffic drifted up from the street. George picked up his keys and headed for the apartment door. This was a special day. Perhaps the most special day of his life to date. Today was the day he would ask Georgina to marry him. Georgina was his girlfriend. French. From France.

He'd covered all the bases. He'd bought the ring, a bouquet of flowers and a set of knee pads. If she said "no" at least they'd have a good laugh over the knee pads. If she said yes they'd remember him down on his knees this day forever.

He grabbed everything, locked the apartment door and descended the stairs. The restaurant was nearby so he decided to walk. As he waited on the corner for the light to change he thought of spending the rest of his life with Georgina. Not that he was being presumptuous but he had a good sense she felt the same way too. He was sure it was kismet. And besides wi…
