Pause Ponder and Pissing Down Rain


You know whenever I see something about rain I think of that old joke...

Guy 1: "Hey it's raining cats and dogs out there."
Guy 2: "Be careful not to step in a poodle."

Well, maybe not always. And maybe that's just as well.

Ok, enough with the jokes, let's see what we've got.

And this week we have the infrequent occurrence of double winners. Yep...

Jimmy takes his OCD to a whole new level.

Wow, wet was he thinking?


Now Moooooog's been a winner too many times to count. He's one funny fella. So it's nice to see he's joined by newcomer Georgina with a pun after my own heart. Congratulations you guys. You both be hangin' with the dufus. Yippee!

See everybody next week! Hey, and click on these guys links. They worked hard to get here. The least you could do is check them out. Over and out.

Woooooo!!

Co-win or not, it's good to be the king.

Does Georgina need my phone number? I'm assuming we need to..you know..congratulate each other and stuff.

It's so much fun to participate and read everyone's captions. You find the best pictures for us to play around with. Have a great weekend! - G

Ha! Co-winners, eh? I guess I have to say congrats to Mooooog35 for the umpteenth time (no, I'm not bitter, hee hee) and a huge congrat to Georgina!

I knew she had the winning caption! It made me snort! And yes, I'm still cleaning out DDP from my keyboard.

*smile*

Oh and many thanks for the lovely shout-out! You're too good to me Sir Nomesters!

Quirks: Good luck with that DDP on the keyboard. And the shout out? You're worth it.

Congrats to Moooooog and Georgina! Both great captions!

"...screwing-in-the-lightbulb" Ha, ha! I never really looked it at that way.

And congrats to the honourable mentions as well!

00dozo: Me either, but I'm gonna use it now.

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…
