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 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 …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
