Too true on Hernandez. Where has Joe Dimaggio gone? Another reason I'm giving up on fantasy football this year (I wrote about that serious side of why too over on my blog, if you're interested).

Those fantasy leagues won't be the same without you, Bryan. What the heck you gonna do with all that time on your hands?
Bryan G. said…
Read a book? :)
nonamedufus said…
OK, good alternative.

The grieving Smokey the Bear one is very apt. So is the unclaimed baggage one. Also laughed again at the Calgary Stampede one, even though I saw it earlier this week in our local paper.

The fire and the flood were very sad events, weren't they. We've since had a plane crash in San Fran and an explosion and forest fires in Quebec. Tragedy isn't funny.

I love the Betsy Ross tramp stamp one! It's similar to mine. Ok, not really. Mine is a Nazi flag. Shhh...
nonamedufus said…
I should have known. Good to see you and your tramp stamp around again, Chelle.

Happy belated 4th Boom Boom.
nonamedufus said…
You too, eh? Hope you had a great July 4th long weekend.
meleahrebeccah said…
I think I'm still hung over! But yes, I had a great holiday weekend.
nonamedufus said…
But the 4th's all about alcohol, right?
nonamedufus said…
Yeah and alcohol can often lead to fireworks and I'm not talking about the ones in the sky.

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…
