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!
nonamedufus said…
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.
Cheryl said…
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.

Twittercide is Painless

Hey, don't forget to stop by my caption contest - Pause, Ponder and Pun - and leave a caption. You might win exciting prizes. Well, no prizes really but significant web cred to have been awarded the I Be Hangin' With Dufus citation. Oh yeah, baby! Meanwhile on with today's post...

The debate on the positive versus negative impacts of social media networking continues, this time around the Catholic Church has waded in.

Me? In addition to having friends in the real world, I find such social media as Twitter, Facebook and my blog an interesting way to interact with new people across all social strata, age groups and geographic locations. Indeed, I think it's the technological equivalent of Walt Disney's philosophy: It's A Small World, After All. (I stress philosophy and not that annoying theme park song)





Couldn't watch it all, could you? But I digress...


I thought the Catholic Church ran out of feet to stand on a long time ago. But apparently it has as many feet…

Exercising My Rights (And My Lefts)

I confess, I'm not the most energetic of people. After all I'm a guy whose Facebook status reads "I'm not lazy. I'm just energy efficient". In fact, few people know but if you look up couch potato in the dictionary it has my picture.

At my house, we're so lazy even my cat is a couch potato.

But I've decided it's high time to do something about it. I've decided to undertake cross-country skiing. And, speaking of which, after our little session this morning, an undertake-r is something I could have really used. We're quite fortunate where we live. The ski trails are a five-minute walk (more exercise!). But miracle of miracles, I stayed upright the whole time. Putting the skis on was interesting.
"You put your right foot in, you take your right foot out..."
The trail itself was gorgeous, with hardly anyone else out at 9:30 in the morning. Which worked out fine for me. I didn't have to pull over to let faster skiers (read: everyone e…

Here's something unusual for an urban centre. In the heart of Canada's capital is a huge block of open land (400 hectares) called The Central Experimental Farm. It was established in 1886 (thats a long time for an "experiment") as the central research station for the federal Department of Agriculture. When I first entered the public service in the mid 80s (that's the 1990s) I worked at Agriculture in the Sir John Carling Building located on the farm.
