Pause Ponder and Pedal


Well, we had a fine crop of captions this week considering we're in the hazy, lazy days of summer.

For example, Georgina Dollface wheeled in with:

When I take these back for the deposit, maybe I'll have enough to finally get a bell for my bicycle.


And Tgoette spoke truth to power with:

Hearts raced with glee every time the whiskey man would ride through the village, selling his bottles of liquid joy to the young Irish lads.


And we never tire of Moooooog's captions who this week gave us:

Luckily for us, this picture was taken from the front - otherwise we'd see where Jimmy put the other bottle of wine he was carrying.


Renal Failure, never shy to pedal his stuff around here, came up with:

Sponsor of the new DrinkStrong bracelet.


But it was Cat Lady "Boom-Boom" Larew who rode in at the 11th hour with our winner:

Dufus returns from his hiatus... and we're given a clue as to what he's been up to for the past several weeks.




Well, yeah, I know she mentioned me in her caption. So? That had absolutely nothing to do with her winning. Not at all.

Hey CL, you be hangin with the dufus, girl!  Congratulations my friend.

Thanks to everyone who participated in our little contest.  Be sure and race back here next Wednesday for another chance to be hangin' with dufus.

Quirks: And when she eats at East Side Mario's the waiter says "Boom-Boom's in the room, budda boom, budda bing" Or maybe not.

Congrats to "Boom-Boom"! At first, I didn't think that was a caption until I read it a second time. Well done, CL! "Badda bing, badda boom!"

And, of course, congrats to the honourables.

G: There's a story that Cat Lady once told about how she got that nick name. I like it so much I've used it ever since. She da boom...er, bomb.

Congrats to Cat Lady. The captions were great and the photo was hilarious.

Leeuna: You're not saying that just because it's me?

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…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
