Pause Ponder and Paperback Rider

We didn't get much reaction to this week's pic. I suspect many folks are enjoying the last days of summer and probably missed our paperback riders, here.

Too bad. I liked this pic. Gives new meaning to the term bookmarks, don't you think?

Well let's see what our participants this week DID think, shall we? All 2 of them.

I'm glad the Erector set I had as a kid wasn't like this new age set!

This lovely self-assembly bookcase comes with sturdy built-in bookends.

Special care instructions: Never use feather dusters!

Our winner this week had all the angles covered (unlike our friends in the photo) and almost all the captions.

I wanted the new furniture made from pussywillow, my wife insisted on hard wood.

Okay, there, Skeeter you win. Of course with 3 of the 4 entries this week your chances were pretty good. Nevertheless, congratulations guy. You're hangin' with dufus again. I think we ought to take a trip to IKEA and see if they have a female version of this bookcase. I mean we already have the allen key, if you know what I mean, right?

OOOH... sorry I missed this one! It's a goody!

I didn't miss it, I just chose to bow out knowing I was incapable of competing with Skeeter's first 2 captions. I did enjoy coming back on a daily basis to giggle. Whoever photoshopped this did a great job.

Paula, you "barely" made it.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, I'm afraid the rest just didn't stack up this week.
nonamedufus said…
I think his caption speaks "volumes".
nonamedufus said…
Well I appreciate your candidness. I guess that's the naked truth then, eh?

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…
