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.

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.

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!

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.
