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.
Oh yes, Boom-Boom is spot on! I enjoyed reading everyone's contributions. Thanks for the shout out too! - G
I just read your comment back to Quirkyloon and I almost upchucked my coffee laughing! LOL!

00dozo: For some reason her caption really had me laughing. Like, how did she know?

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?

Boom Boom Larew! Sounds like a roller derby queen. Congrats to you, girl. And Moooog's was very funny too.

Boom-Boom: I'm gonna keep my eyes shut for this one, if you don't mind. ;) Congratulations anyway. You were very cheeky.

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 …

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…
