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, 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.

KABLOOEY: Boom-Boom Larew with the Rochester Wing Nut Wheelers! I like it.

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 - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

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…
