Pause Ponder and My Little Pony

What do you get when you cross a race horse with an ostrich? Probably something that looks like that thing in the picture.

You guys had your own ideas. Let' take a look at some of them...

The long shot, Aftershock, got boxed in and Alvarez had to pull her up shorter than he expected tp avoid a collision. Ticket holders were ecstatic when the filly came from behind to win by hald a length.

The real American Quarter Horse

Sarah Jessic Parker heads out for her morning run.

But the quip that made me bite my lip won the day...

Professor Floxington comes in 16254th at the 1st and last annual all-LSD Olympics.

Way to go Mike. Far out, dude. You be hangin' with the dufus this weekend. Peace, man. Groovy. Why don't you come over and I'll put on some Vanilla Fudge and we can bliss for awhile.

Thanks to all who participated this week. We'll see y'all again Wednesday.


That photograph is creepy as all get out.

Thanks for the shout. Took me a minute (okay, it took me 5 minutes) to figure out Mike's caption. Now I can't stop giggling.

I know. But then Princess Anne is not the most attractive of the Royals, is she?
Nonamedufus said…
Well that's how it starts. Then you get the munches.

Yay you!

Here's the thing. I kept reading it as LDS and that didn't make any sense. Once I read it correctly, I was so hung up on the whole Mormon thing I simply couldn't get turned around. Then I got the munchies.

Speaking of LDS, has anyone seen Quirky? She's been MIA for a couple of weeks now.

I always have the munchies.

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…
