Pause Ponder and Pasture Prime

Okay, it's Saturday and time for this week's results. Here's our pic…


All the cattle are standing' like statues
All the cattle are standing' like statues
They don't turn their heads as they see me ride by
But a little brown maverick is winking' her eye

Well if that's the case it's gonna be a beautiful morning.

Sorry I got carried away there. And that's no bull.

Okay, okay, here's our honourable mentions:

A little hard of hearing, Amy Sue thought her friends said, 
"Amy Sue, you should date a cow, boy!"


…and then she said "Baaaaaaaaa!" Yeah, well she's really a blond.


Pretty good, huh? Yeah, I thought so too.

But our winner knows me too well and went after my peculiar penchant for pithy puns.

No matter how udderly ridiculous she looked, 
Daisy Mae couldn't help milking it for the camera.
She was just bull-headed like that.

Woot, woot Nicky! (What the hell does that really mean anyway? And do people still say that?) You may be pasture prime but the dufus will still let you hang with him.

What do you say we meet in Hawksbury and take a stroll in the meadow. I hear the corn there is as high as an elephant's eye. We can gaze into each other's eyes and get lost in the husks…or the tusks…until the sky turns to dusk and you tell me how much you like my musk. Or not. It's up to you.

Oh, here's your stinking badge…



It's yours… no, no take it.



Yeah, whatever Cheese Lady. Congratulations anyway.

See y'all next week.

Woohoo! I won a date with Dufus! But won't Mrs. D mind? No matter... I have more important things to worry about - like what does one wear to a date in a Hawksbury corn field? And do they make high heeled farmer's boots? :-)

Nicky really know her bull.
Congrats!

Well done! Actually I'd like medium rare.
nonamedufus said…
Will Mrs D mind? I dunno. I never asked herbivore.
nonamedufus said…
I've got a beef with that, Shawn.
nonamedufus said…
You are a rare one, indeed, 54.
ReformingGeek said…
That was a great caption and I think she's got the slang down patty, er, pat, but has she ever been cow-tipping?



Thanks for the mention!

You know they throw those things, eh? It's called a Cow Chip throwing contest…

Hahahahaha, all three are great!
nonamedufus said…
Oh, yeah, everyone was a comedian this week.
Shawn Ohara said…
It's funny, but I am pretty sure I have seen herbivore.
Dang, that was a good one, Nicky! Congratulations!
As for "Woot"... it's obviously taken from my name and means "What the hell, let's party!"
nonamedufus said…
Great minds think alike, I guess. I'd hate for us to be on the horns of a dilemma.
nonamedufus said…
She certainly is outstanding in her field isn't she.
nonamedufus said…
Well I should have said it sooner…and more often. I guess the fall down and go Boom Boom part comes later.
LOTGK said…
The correct position for "Reverse Cowgirl"

HA! Congrats to Nicky! That was freaking hysterical!
nonamedufus said…
Mike, Mike, it's Sunday. You're supposed to submit these before Saturday.
nonamedufus said…
That's a picture of Nicky actually. Um, she's the one on the right by the way.

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…
