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.

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.

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…
