An existential patio table. I like it.
nonamedufus said…
Yes, isn't that logical?
Cheryl said…
That looks inviting. Wish I could have found some time to head north.
nonamedufus said…
It's much more inviting without the falling leaves.
ladyV said…
looks peaceful to me. now all i would need is 90 degree weather and a book. nice one
nonamedufus said…
Yeah it's nice out there in 90 degree weather. Now, not so much.

Hey, you know I'm going to fall all over myself... I always do. Seems like only yesterday Henry and I were admiring your leafless deck.
nonamedufus said…
To everything...turn, turn, turn...there is a season...turn, turn, turn
Pat Kumicich said…
the leaves look pretty scattered on the table and deck.
nonamedufus said…
Sure they look pretty now. It's when the rest fall and you have to pick them up they're not so pretty.
Laughing Mom said…
What's Irish and sits on your deck year round? Patty O'Furniture!
Lovely shot, duf!
nonamedufus said…
Nice one, LM. Next week we'll be putting the furniture in the shed for the winter.
Coco said…
This photo shows your fun summer as well. I like this photo!
nonamedufus said…
Those table and chairs get a lot of use in the summer.

I don't know why - but that table looks a little sad to me.
nonamedufus said…
It's sad because it's been abandoned.
meleahrebeccah said…
Yes! That IS why it looks sad!
nonamedufus said…
There's been a few beers had around that table too.
Ziva said…
What a lonely table. I want to sit down and have a drink, make it a little less lonely.
nonamedufus said…
You have an open invitation, Ziva. At least until it snows.
Danielle Batog said…
Are you going to have to 'winter' the furniture where you are? I would hate not being able to sit outside year round.
nonamedufus said…
Oh yeah we're in the land of ice and snow here. We'll put that set away in a week or so.
MikeWJ said…
I don't know if it's logical, but I like it. Hey, can I join you for a drink, too? I'd like that, NoName.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, absolutely, Mike. Can I get you a cold one?
Daniell's question was good - I didn't think about that. I help my mom bring in all her stuff... of course this year the guys will have to lift. Your shot actually makes me feel the "nip in the air".... very nice!
mike said…
My powers of deduction tell me that you do not have a maple tree. I could be wrong though.
stoneskin said…
You should really clean all the leaves up off the veranda. It makes it look messy.
nonamedufus said…
Oh there's definitely a nip in the air these days.
nonamedufus said…
We have maple trees elsewhere in the yard. Those leaves are from an ash, which towers over our deck.
nonamedufus said…
We're getting to it. We're just waiting for all the leaves to fall first.

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…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
