Pause Ponder Pun and Sunshine

What a gorgeous day in the neighbourhood, Mr. Rogers.  It's 28 in the nation's capital.  That's 82 for my American friends.  And the sun is just beating down.  What great weather for the first Saturday of April!  And what better time to tell you that my good friend Cat Lady Larew bestowed a Sunshine Award upon me earlier this week. Isn't that cool?!  Thanks CL.


I'll tell you what else is cool.  The submissions to this week's Pause Ponder and Pun were hilarious.  I tell you it gets harder each week to narrow down these captions to just one winner.

See for yourself.

Ziva came up with a real zinger...

C'mon honey, it's only until death do us part.


Kelly cracked me up with...

I swore I would get married by age 30 no matter what and you...are...it!


Webless 00dozo offered...

"It's not that I can't, I just don't wanna do the 'Chicken Dance'!"


But it was newcomer Malisa who really made me laugh with...



According to the new Health Care Bill, all newlyweds MUST perform warm up exercises prior to the honeymoon to avoid catastrophic medical expenses.

Ha, ha, congrats Malisa.  You be hangin' with the dufus this week.  Good on ya!  And Happy Easter!!!

Thanks to everyone for playing.  See y'all next week.  Hey, and click through and visit these guys' blogs.  Tell 'em you've been hangin' with dufus.

Happy Easter to you as well Sir. Temps here are reaching the high teens translating into the 40's for those who read English and not Canadian...lol.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

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 …
