Pause Ponder and a Pool Fool

This was our pic this week. And these were our top captions...

Revenge of the Plankers!

Left of the blue and white boy? Right of the blue and white boy? Damn, I'll never get ny boating licence.

Jeffrey thought he could hold on until low tide. He was wrong.

And our winner was head and shoulders above the competition:

Scott's dandruff problem was getting out of hand. But he had one last trick up his sleeve.

Congratulations Shawn. You be hangin' with dufus this weekend. What say we head on down to the Ottawa River. The water level there's really low this summer. We could jump off the Champlain Bridge and take care of our dandruff just like our friend up there...permanently!

And thanks to everyone for playing along this week. I look forward to your captions on our next pic, Wednesday.

... And if a friend tells you it would be fun to jump off a bridge, would you do it? Echos of my mother's parenting wisdom. She must have suspected I'd be friends with you some day, Dufus.

I think you're the sister I never had, Paula. My mother always used to say that!

I wanted to comment on this photo. But Dufus, I couldn't really make out what it was! I'm the slower sister you never had.
nonamedufus said…
That's okay. My blog's a bit of a dive these days.
Linda Medrano said…
Not at all. And really. It's me, not you.

Wow! I won. You like me! You really like me!
Sorry I'm late checking in. I'm south of the border, way down Cape Cod way. I'll swing by the mighty Ottawa on my way back.

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

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!"

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 …
