Photo Challenge - March

The theme of this month's photo challenge coordinated by P.J. over at a 'lilhoohaa is "one". 

One? Now I'm a music buff so when I hear a word or phrase I often think of a song. How about 1968's "One (Is The Loneliest Number)" by Three Dog Night or the hauntingly beautiful "One" by U2 from 1992? But those are videos and this is a photo challenge. So here are my "ones" from March

The sign said "one way". Maybe if I keep going I'll find summer.


The clock in the car said 1 o'clock. Don't stare too long. You may have an accident. 


I went to a hospital appointment about mid-March and parked my car on Level F-1


We're health conscious in my house. Well, one of us is anyway. We drink 1% milk.


And a quick visit to the music room turned up this post-Beatles Beatles CD of #1 Beatles songs.


That was my month. Now, march on over to P.J.'s place @ a 'lilhoohaa and see how the rest of the participants portrayed "one".

Ugh. I'm sorry that your spring is malfunctioning.

Oh dear. What IS this thing clock? It has hands and no numbers. It's a good thing you told us the time. Hee Hee.

Nice picks!

I like your creativity this month - especially the "one way" sign. ReformingGeek's comment about the analog comment is right on the money - I don't know if either one of our boys would be able to read the clock in your dash. Yet one more thing marking the generational divide!

Is it my age? I actually prefer analogue clocks.

You parked on level F1? Isn't that the 'help' key? I visited someone in hospital recently whose room was on E bay.
Jay of The Depp Effect said…
Me too. If I wear a watch at all, it has to be analogue!

We had another dump of snow Saturday night. I'm kinda getting tired of this.


Are you kidding? I still wear an analog watch. I'm bilingual when it comes to telling time.
nonamedufus said…
It's amazing isn't it. My grandkids have no idea what time it is if it isn't digital. The car is a 2006 model. I'm surprised there wasn't a digital clock installed.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, me too. And, yes, it's my age.
nonamedufus said…
Were they selling body parts? Oh my that's strange.
Paul Myers said…
I have the same Beatles album. I didn't even think to photograph that as part of the challenge.

The perspective on your hospital shot is such, it almost looks like the door is on the celling. It's a little disconcerting when you first look at it until your brain unscrambles it and puts it in the right perspective for you.

Just had to replace my watch and I never even looked at the digital stuff. Forgot they existed. I'm pretty sure it's our age and our reliance on things that remind us of where we're from.
Cheryl said…
I read Paul's comment then looked at the door again. Kinda bummed because I thought it WAS on the ceiling and I was thinking you'd landed in "White Rabbit."
babs (beetle) said…
I think you're right. I only bought mine a few weeks ago. I haven't worn a watch for about 25 years and wanted one, almost for sentimental reasons. I chose one just like the last watch I ever wore too :)
Izzy said…
great photos :)
mike said…
Nice "one's", Dufus. Man, you have a lot of CD's. I digitized most of mine and boxed them.
nonamedufus said…
I just wouldn't think to buy a digital watch.
nonamedufus said…
All I did with that door shot was tip the camera a bit. Funny, eh?
nonamedufus said…
One pill makes you larger...
nonamedufus said…
Thanks Izzy. Um, have you got the time, Izzy?
nonamedufus said…
I think it might take me several years to digitize my CDs, Mike. But I'd make a lot of money selling them. I'm thinking of digitizing my vinyl collection though.
These are so great... they all made me smile. Then this one? "The clock in the car said 1 o'clock. Don't stare too long. You may have an accident. " I laughed out loud because for a split second I thought, "Oh yea!" DUHHH I'm not driving!
Lisa said…
Excellent eye! i love the unusual and wish I'd had more out of the ordinary ideas this month. My fave is the ONE way....to summer!
Kathy L said…
You did well on this theme. I have to say, I just LOVE your "hanging out" photo, I know, I know, it's not one of your theme photos, but had to tell you it's priceless!
nonamedufus said…
You're funny. Glad you enjoyed my pics.
nonamedufus said…
I'm a big fan of doing things a little differently
nonamedufus said…
Oh, thanks, Kathy. When I first found that photo many years ago it just made me laugh it was so odd. I've used it as my avatar every since.

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…
