Pause Ponder and Prospective Goddesses


Obviously these girls didn't have the grandmother I once had. I recall sticking my tongue out at her when I was about 5 years old and she grabbed a knife from the kitchen drawer and threatened to cut it off. That was many years ago but her feigned over-the-top reaction has stayed with me to this day. Although I've been known to still stick my tongue out from time to time. So what have we got in this week's captions?

Well, Donnie had this one licked with:

Manners and maturity. It's what being a teen is all about.



00dozo took a page from my favourite movie A Christmas Story with:

This is what happens when you lick too many poles in the winter.



Cruella Collett stuck her tongue firmly in her cheek and gave us:

5 seconds later the Kardashians finally came up with a way of becoming famous.



But Boom Boom puckered up and blew a raspberry to Charlie Sheen's recent antics with:

Prospective goddesses vie for a job at Sober Valley Lodge.


Ha, ha...good one Boom Boom. You win again, girl. You be hangin' with dufus this week. Congratulations.

Thanks to all for playing along and we'll see you back here again Wednesday for our next Pause Ponder and Pun.

Congrats Boom Boom!! I think we should declare March Charlie Sheen month!

Thanks for the mention and congrats to Donnie and Cruella ... Hmmm, "Donnie and Cruella" - has a nice ring to it, eh?

00dozo:Oh, please. Wasn't February enough?
00dozo said…
Well, most of what I read about him (and mostly through the blogs) was in March. God forbid I would associate him with the month of my birth!

00dozo: I don't think we should even give him a day.

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.
