Laughing Mom said…
That is a cool shot, duf! Where is it? There must be a story to go with it! Do tell.....
Barb said…
Nice shot Duf!
Ziva said…
Ohh, this is such an awesome photo, you handsome devil, you! I love it. Thank you, dufus, for participating, punning and photographing, it's been a true pleasure. :)

It was fun, eh? Well, kinda.
nonamedufus said…
No big story. That's one of the corners of my backyard deck. I took the shot just after the sun had gone down around 6pm.
nonamedufus said…
Are you kidding? I'm ready for the next 30 days...in about a year. I really like the handsome devil part. I think the darkness covers up a lot.
Shawn Ohara said…
Thought you would post another video for this one, "This gun's for hire even if we're just dancing in the dark ..."
Danielle Batog said…
I love how you did this photo.
Jamie Baker said…
Well done Dufus. Night, night.
nonamedufus said…
Damn, now why didn't I think of that?
nonamedufus said…
Thanks, Danielle. It really was straight forward. And it was the only shot I took, so I'm glad it turned out.
nonamedufus said…
Sleep tight, Jamie.
The light is perfect in this... and the layout of the shot. LOVE it!

Nice way to tie it all together Noname.

Hey, Diogenes, I got a hint for you: Give up the search. You're not going to find one. Give yourself a break and have a cold one. I'll join you.

This is your best photo of the event, NoName. I love it. And you are handsome. I wouldn't do you, of course, but I'm sure somebody would.
nonamedufus said…
That's a light on our deck. I stood on one side, held the camera on the other and clicked.
nonamedufus said…
Thanks, Mike. I'm delighted by your comment.
nonamedufus said…
Ha, it does look like I'm carrying that lamp but it's really on a post. And it's night-time not during the day. (Thanks Google.) I'm pouring now you silver-tongued devil.

That lantern is AWESOME! If that IS a lantern. I sure could've used that this week.

NJ is an absolute mess. Things are really bad. We have no power, no television, no radio, no internet, no landlines, no cell phone service, no texts, no emails, no form of communication whatsoever - nothing.

And the roads are awful. Trees & power lines are down, blocking streets, no traffic lights work...ect.

We probably won't have power for at least a week.

Luckily I was able to escape NJ with my son and and we made it to PA safely, to my brothers house where we have POWER and INTERNET and SHOWERS. Thank fuck.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, man, Meleah, like that's just what you need. I guess New Jersey pretty much bore the brunt of the storm. Glad you're safe and sound, high and dry, powered up and clean.
Cheryl said…
Good gawd, man! That's some spooky photo. I don't think I've ever seen your serious face.
nonamedufus said…
That was my Halloween shot.
Cheryl said…
Did you manage to frighten away all the trick or treaters?


We haven't had TorT yet. Saturday unless it snows. ;-)
Boom Boom Larew said…
Now, that's kinda creepy... are you trying to scare away the trick-or-treaters?
nonamedufus said…
We've lived here 11 years and never had a Trick or Treater. Now that's scary.
nonamedufus said…
I must have. They never come to our house.

heya dufus, nice to put a face with the name.
nonamedufus said…
Yes, I really do exist.

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.
