Well look at him.

Guess who?

Yeah that's me about 59 years ago.

I took a picture of that picture a couple of days ago.

Hey you didn't want to see a picture of a nude 59 year old man, did you?

Trust me. You don't.

It's appropriate I'm in my birthday suit.

Tomorrow's my birthday!

The big 6-0!

Your blogging anniversary and your birthday all in one week? How lucky can one guy get? Hope it's not a kick in the head. :)

You're adorable, dufus, and I bet you don't look a day older even as you're turning 60.

Well.. maybe a day.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, I'm blessed. *rolls eyes*
Aw, come on, you're alive and kicking. What's not to celebrate? :)

Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!!
laughing mom said…
What a cutie you were! I think in honor of turning 60 you should have recreated the photo and posted both of them!!!
Cheryl said…
Ya know, I've got this great B&W photo of one of my brothers that's just adorable. I thought about using it but I didn't take it. D'oh! I could have done this.

::bangs head on wall::

Terrific idea and love the results.

Liz A. said…
Happy birthday!!
Linda Medrano said…
Oh John, I would have known you anywhere! And Happy Birthday Eve! (Excuse me, nude 59 year old men have made my day many times! Don't be silly!)
Cheryl P. said…
Happy birthday a day in advance. (just in case, I miss re-telling you tomorrow).

What a cute picture. Really cute.
Mike said…
Great idea, Dufus and perfect timing for b-day weekend.
Quirky Loon said…
Aww, how cute! And early Happy Birthday to ye! Eat cake and be happy.
MalisaHargrove said…
Okay, I LOVE this photo of a necked Dufus! I am so glad that your mother had enough sense to take some necked photos of you. And by the way, you were just adorable! Happy Almost Birthday, you young thang, you!
Shawn said…
Happy Birthday!
nonamedufus said…
Oh, and I'll be kicking until my dying day.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, maybe a day. But I'm still adorable.
nonamedufus said…
Thanks, Meleah. Too bad we have to get old(er).
nonamedufus said…
Were? Some think I'm still a cutie. Athough they just haven't told me lately.
nonamedufus said…
Thanks, Cheryl. Beats me taking a snap of myself today! You wouldn't want to see that, believe me.
nonamedufus said…
I seem to be having a really good time, too.
nonamedufus said…
Thanks, Liz. I'm kinda getting used to the idea.
nonamedufus said…
Well we better hurry up Linda. Tomorrow I'll be 60.
nonamedufus said…
Thanks, Cheryl. Glad you like the pic.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, I kinda thought so. Nice how that worked out.
nonamedufus said…
Thanks, Quirks. It'll be a fun day, I'm sure.
nonamedufus said…
Hey, what can I say. There was a time when necked worked for me.
mikewjattoomanymornings said…
You look incredibly happy in that photograph, NoName. I hope you feel just as happy tomorrow, when you turn 60. I doubt you will, because 60 is super-old. And I would know because I'm still in my early 50s.
Cheryl said…
Not nice, Michael, not nice at all.
Cheryl said…
Did you notice you have some schmutz on your forehead?
meleahrebeccah said…
Getting older = sucks!
nonamedufus said…
Oh, but I am happy.I made it to 60! And, hey, your turn will come my friend.
nonamedufus said…
Right on, Cheryl. You tell him. Although, I think he knows.
nonamedufus said…
Well, yeah. That's why I'm having a bath, silly.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, but at least I'm still here!
nonamedufus said…
Amen to that. And hopefully for many more years yet.
Linda Medrano said…
Shucks! I'm too old for you, my dear Dufus!
nonamedufus said…
Really? There's someone out there older than I am?
59? You look sub-one. Wait, I misread that, y'know, keeping an eye on the kettle and all that...I can actually see a resemblance between you and how I imagine you might look at 59. I think that means I'm gifted.
nonamedufus said…
The similarity is I'm still not shaving, Mo. But I think it ends there. These days I wear clothes.
00dozo said…
"Look mommy! I made bubbles!" ;-)

Ha, ha! Yep, I'll bet you had a good time.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, that may explain the look on my face. Either that or my Mom just told me I didn't have to eat peas for lunch.
I don't really shave but I do wear clothes. It's an etiquette thing.
Although temperature IS a factor.
Nora Blithe said…
I've veiwed today's photos with some trepidation. I'm so glad you went with a photo of yourself from childhood. So glad.
nonamedufus said…
True, I suppose. But I always have an article of some clothing. I don't want to offend the neighbours. Or the family.
A REAL NUDE SHOT! WOOT!
nonamedufus said…
Well, yeah. I deliver on my promises.
Nora Blithe said…
Allow me to rephrase that: I'm very glad that no one put up a nude photo of themselves. So far, I'm not done going through them.

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.
