Happy Canada Day, eh?

What do you do, play pin the tail on the mountie?
Bust a moose pinata?
Drink a keg o' Labatt's?

Whatever, have a good time!

Happy Canada Day, dufus! And good luck fishing, golfing or whatever you're doing for an excuse to drink beer all weekend.

(P.S. Party hearty, but too much beer will make you a farty Marty.)

Well we didn't need an excuse Friday. Whitey, Sir Drinksalot and I just drank beer. Today was golf day. It wasn't pretty.
nonamedufus said…
Those are all good activities.I'll have to remember them next year, Chris. This year we just played hide and seek with our beavers.
nonamedufus said…
Thanks, Quirks. I'll remember to give you a salute on Monday.
nonamedufus said…
All of the above!

Sounds like you got a repeat on the fireworks this morning (due to hangover), went goofing instead of golfing and did a lot of 'duffing' (again, due to hangover). Hey, so long as it was fun (I hope)!

Didn't have to golf until 11:15 so we had a chance to load up on eggs Benedict. A great start to the day...perfect pick me up!

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…
