Ah! How I have missed the Sunday Funnies!

Great choices.

The MSNBC falling to the left. *snort*

Jack Lalanne bursting through the bars. *snort* and *smile*

14 trillion debt. *sob* and *sob*

Love Lalanne's 'toon - a damn fiesty man, even to the end!

Quirks: I've kinda missed them too. It's fun going through the week's editorial cartoons. I loved the MSNBC one.

00dozo: The guy was a fitness nut since the age of 15. For example, in 1980 at the age of 66 he towed 10 boats in North Miami, Florida. The boats carried 77 people, and he towed them for over one mile (1.6 km) in less than one hour.

When asked about sex, he had a standard joke, saying that despite their advanced age, he and his wife still made love almost every night: "Almost on Monday, almost on Tuesday, almost on Wednesday..."

Kelly: Aw,thanks. I'm starting to get back in the swing of things. Ha, after 5 weeks of golf I've begun to speak in golf terms.

I loved these. You are really a talented guy, Dufus. I'm glad your back in the saddle so to speak (cowboy humor).

You've got some good ones here. Love the Jack LaLanne one. That's exactly how I picture him arriving. RIP Jack.

Boom Boom: The original "pump, you up" guy.

Linda: I've always enjoyed searching for the funniest editorial cartoons of the week. They provide a unique commentary on society.

Jayne: There must have been something to what he espoused throughout his life to have lived such a long and healthy one.

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…
