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.

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

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?

Well that's how it starts. Then you get the munches.

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.

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.

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 …
