Pause Ponder and Pitch It Right In Here

You know, you really need balls to be a catcher in major league baseball. 

Well that was my take on this week's pic. Let's see what some others came up with...

Ever wonder how baby baseballs are born?
Michael Wolfe @ Predator Press

As my father always told me "be the ball".

Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez was never the same, even after they took the stitches out.
Nicky @ We Work For Cheese

Which ball am I supposed to keep my eye on?
Paula @ How to Become a Cat Lady...Without the Cats

And our winner this week...

After surgery, John Kruk still played despite the one ball he had left being swollen.
Skeeter @ Dead Dog

Way to keep your eye on the ball, Skeeter. Congratulations. You be hangin' with dufus this week. Wanna head on down to Toronto with me and take in a Blue Jays game? They're currently in last place in the American League, east. Maybe if they changed to this guy's uniform they'd have more success.

Thanks to everyone who played along this week. Be sure and join us Wednesday for another edition of Pause Ponder and Pun.

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…
