Photo Challenge - February

The theme of this month's photo challenge coordinated by P.J. over at a 'lilhoohaa is "red". Now I was pretty busy in February what with participating in a daily writing challenge and all. I did find the time to take the lovely Mrs. Dufus out for dinner and present her with a beautiful bouquet of red roses. Lucky for me, nudge, nudge.







Click on P.J.'s link up there and see how the rest of the photog bloggers dealt with the prompt.

I'm afraid I didn't get out much this month. So damn cold here.
Ha ha ha nudge nudge! That means she let you have a night off taking out the trash, right? Right?? ;D

No, I didn't have to do the dishes.

Ooh, ahh, so very pretty! I can almost smell them.
nonamedufus said…
They did the trick.

Nice roses. These things do wonders, don't they?
nonamedufus said…
Oh, they're like a secret weapon. Sometimes I buy them and it's not even Valentine's Day.
Cheryl P. said…
Very nice!! Hard to go wrong with roses.
nonamedufus said…
That's been my experience.
You'd BETTER buy her roses... after your dalliance with Dylan. For shame!
nonamedufus said…
Hey that was fictional. The roses were real, though.

Valentine's Day passed us by without much notice...too busy enjoying vacation. I did miss the roses though - that is until the front desk at our hotel gave me one long-stemmed flower in the afternoon. The next morning, I saw red rose petals on the ground at the parking lot for the Franz Josef glacier trail, where we stopped to make the required observations to log an earthcache. They looked sad and water-trodden, but my photo didn't turn out very well, so it's in the digital trash can!

Beautiful roses and a great take on RED this month.
jo W said…
someone was lucky to received such beautiful roses!
nonamedufus said…
Lucky you. Glacier trail, eh? Cool.
nonamedufus said…
And worth every penny.
nonamedufus said…
Oh, no, I'm the lucky one. (She reads the comments.)
P.J. said…
Leave it to you dufus! There's a way to do the challenge. And a nudge, nudge ... what about the wink, wink?
nonamedufus said…
I bought them and gave them to my dear wife…and have the pictures to prove it.
Lisa said…
You just can't go wrong with red roses...unless it sparkles (nudge, nudge)! Mrs. D is a fortunate woman. :-)

You mean like crafts with glitter?
Lisa said…
Not exactly………………;-)

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…

Paroxysm Paradox

The weather was unseasonably warm for October. The sun set around 6:30 but the daylight hours were quite enjoyable. So thought Richard, as he set out for his daily walk in the woods. He marvelled at the turning leaves which exhibited an explosion of colour more significant with each passing day.

But Richard knew the turning leaves would soon start to fall. And the trees would soon be bare with no leaves at all. And then the snow would fly and fall from the trees as the leaves had before it.

Richard couldn't help but think of the sudden change to come as a seizure of sorts. And he wasn't looking forward to it. After all, who would welcome a seizure, he thought, as he rolled uncontrollably among the leaves.

This week paroxysm/seizure was the prompt at Two Word Tuesday.
