Beyond Left Field


It's a beautiful day in the neighbourhood. *whistles*

Hey folks, if you're looking for me I'm visiting with my good buddy Don at Beyond Left Field. He's asked me to do a guest post gig over there today and how could I turn a good 'ol boy down.

If you don't know Don, let me tell you a little bit about him. If you do know Don, take this with a grain of salt.

I'm not sure why he calls his blog Beyond Left Field 'cause if anything he's just a little right of Attila the Hun.

He lives in Hattiesville, Mississippi where he hangs out with Brett Favre, or his wife, I can't remember which.

He has a sickly room-mate who he's always chauffeuring around to the drug store, the hospital, the doctor's, where America shops - oh anywhere - without one word of complaint.

He's a believer in the institution of marriage but his three ex-wives might disagree on that point.

And he's quite the lady's man, which is why he's living the life of George Clooney.

Oh, yeah, he doesn't go anywhere without his glock.

Don's a funny, funny guy. I visit him every day for a laugh. Well I don't laugh at him. I laugh at his posts. Well, at least that's what I tell him.

And he visits here everyday and leaves some of the funniest comments on my blog.

Here's a picture of Don.


What a cool guy eh ladies.

And here's a picture of his glock.


I suppose some ladies will like Don because he has a big glock.

That aside, drop on over to Don's place today where I'm gonna give you the straight goods - the naked truth, you might say.

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 …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
