Pause Ponder and St.Patrick's Day

Now there's a good upstanding Irish name for ya. Happy Saint Paddy's day to you guys. How many of you folks will be imbibing of the green ale today? Not me. No, the only thing green in my beer will be the lime in my Corona. I don't think they do green beer in Panama.

Remember this guy from earlier in the week? He's some pot of gold isn't he? Let's cut right to the heart of the matter and see what you guys had to say about him...

Mr. Gaga, putting the finishing touches on his red carpet outfit.

This is all wrong. You can't eat with two knives. He should consider replacing one of them with a fork.

Knife, knife, baby! Under pressure, my sinuses.

But our winner planned ahead and took into account the day we'd be announcing the winner. ..

Shamus learned quickly the rests of trying to steal a Leprechaun's gold.

nonamedufus said…
Wow, you coulda had a V-8!
LOTGK said…
I used to, but my Jeep is a 4.0 six. :D
Nonamedufus said…
4.0 wheels? But everybody has 4 wheels.
LOTGK said…
4.0 six, = 4.0 liter engine slant 6 cylinder.
I also have a 5th wheel attached to the trunk. And a steering wheel.
However, a motorcycle only has two whhels. :D

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…

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"
