30 Days of Photos IV - Day 22 - Frustration


Hmmm....

It's Sunday.

Do I play golf...

or watch NFL Football.

Talk about frustration!

Head on over to Ziva's Inferno and see how frustrated the rest of my pic pals are today.

You need a portable TV. Or a virtual golf course.
Playing golf might lead to frustration. Then again, watching your favorite team lose on the TV might be frustrating too. This might be a lose-lose situation.

Yeah it'd be hard to drag a 50" TV around the golf course.
nonamedufus said…
More often than not golf leads to frustration. At least when I golf.
babs (beetle) said…
Very frustrating, but I don't have the same problems. I do neither ;)
nonamedufus said…
Well, I can't find anyone to play golf with me so It's going to be football.
Shawn Ohara said…
We should try rigging one up to the back of a cart.
Cheryl said…
There ya go. Poof! Frustration problem solved.
Cheryl said…
Bahahahahah! I love the idea of a virtual golf course. I might actually break even on one of those.
Cheryl said…
Before I read the comments, I was going to say if it's nice out, record the game and get out on the links while you can. (We always record NASCAR but don't always watch it the same day so I'm on a complete social media and news blackout until I've seen it. Lemme tell ya, that's hellish.)
nonamedufus said…
I do virtual golf in the winter. I'm not much better.
nonamedufus said…
Something tells me it'd take a long time to play a round.
nonamedufus said…
Ah, but I'm playing fantasy football. If my various players don't perform I'll be frustrated.
babs (beetle) said…
That's a good choice then ;)
nonamedufus said…
I couldn't do that. I'm sure I'd accidentally come across the score on the internet.
Agent 54 said…
Tough choices. My friend Arthur Ritus prevents me from playing golf so I don't have to choose.
Nora Blithe said…
Lol, I'll leave the golf to you. My blood pressure can't take it.
nonamedufus said…
I've only been playing for about 4 years but I love it.
ReformingGeek said…
Go practice putting and then return for the football. Wait. This could lead to double frustration.


I hope your day up there is a gorgeous as ours down here in Texas. Wow!
Nicky said…
Rough life you lead, mon ami. Very frustrating. I don't know how you manage. ;-)
Ziva said…
Oh my, life is full of difficult choices, my friend. You better make the right one, or you'll regret it forever.... or at least for a few minutes.
Cheryl P. said…
Just one of life's challenges. I can tell that all your blog readers are feeling really badly for you.
nonamedufus said…
11 degrees celsius and cloudy. I think watching football in my warm den was the right choice.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, I tell you, life can be so hard some times. So many choices.
nonamedufus said…
Well if I had gone golfing I would have gone by myself. So I decided to watch football...um. by myself.
nonamedufus said…
Aw, thanks for understanding everyone!
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, but my dear wife keeps interrupting me.
babs (beetle) said…
A woman's prerogative ;)
nonamedufus said…
Poor Mrs D. She calls herself a football widow.
Jackal said…
Tough choice !
nonamedufus said…
Finally, someone who understands me and the challenging dilemmas I face. Thank you.
Jay of The Depp Effect said…
Ha! The frustration of having two exciting things to choose between!
nonamedufus said…
Right. It can get very frustrating!
nonamedufus said…
At the same time? I'd need a teeny tiny TV on the golf course.
nonamedufus said…
I know, eh. But I decided to stay in and watch football as the golf course is a fair way away.
nonamedufus said…
Well you must have the latest in video recorders. I got nuttin'.
nonamedufus said…
Well, that's not fun.
Cheryl said…
No but Rick & I want to watch them together and sometimes that means waiting. I'd rather go on the blackout and enjoy the races together.
nonamedufus said…
We already watch too much stuff on TV. I'd never find the time to watch something I'd recorded.
Lauren said…
What did you end up doing?
Lauren said…
Just saw your response to Mike.
nonamedufus said…
I watched football. Although, I'm coming down with a cold and slept through much of it.
nonamedufus said…
It is sometimes you know. It's tough.
P.J. said…
If you get an early enough tee time, do them both! Then no frustration. Well, depending on your game and favorite team, in which case it could be a double dose of frustration!

Certainly my father's take on the word!

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.
