idling today?
nonamedufus said…
Pretty much, yeah. And according to Ziva I'm boring.
Laughing Mom said…
I'm boring too, so park your fears and let's drive full force through these last few days of insanity. Ziva's gonna reverse her opinion when she sees our great posts!
nonamedufus said…
I have pics for every post. Some of them, though, aren't very inspiring. 30 days is a looooooooong time.
Barb Paige said…
I thought about doing the same shot!
nonamedufus said…
After 22 days of this photo challenge I'm finding myself stuck in neutral.
meleahrebeccah said…
Ut oh! What happened to the N?
MikeWJ said…
She called you boring? That's just mean, even if it is true.

Don't worry, I've got your back, NoName. Not in a broke back mountain kind of way, mind you. But in a supportive way.
MikeWJ said…
This challenge is really, really hard.
Ziva said…
I did NOT call it boring. I simply said that I did not want to take a photo of the stick shift in my car. Mostly, because the car was in the parking lot, and I was not. Stop twisting my words and make me out to be the bad guy when we all know MikeWJ is the bad guy.
Ziva said…
Wow, dufus, I've hardly ever seen a less boring photo. I love it. LOVE it. Of course, I have no idea how that thing works, but I'm sure you could teach me.
Boom Boom Larew said…
I was wondering the same thing. Was Henry out destroying your car when we visited?
Boom Boom Larew said…
Your car is a lot cleaner than mine. Wanna trade?
nonamedufus said…
I've hit a wall. That's what happens when you out your car in neutral.
nonamedufus said…
Sorry. With your whip we all know you're the bad girl.
nonamedufus said…
I wish I knew how to quit you, Mike.
nonamedufus said…
My car's a 2006 Mitsubishi Outlander. After 6 years things start to wear. Including the driver.
nonamedufus said…
Not that I'm aware of. I'm gonna stay neutral in terms of replying to that question.
nonamedufus said…
I've never used the non-automatic part of my transmission. It's supposed to save fuel but I feel safest leaving it in D, except for the days I leave it in N, of course. That saves a lot of fuel.
nonamedufus said…
My son recently had it detailed for me. The interior was spotless. Of course he was responsible for getting it dirty. Guess he felt guilty.
ladyV said…
don't drive in neutral ;)
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, I won't get very far...unless I'm on a hill.
Jamie Baker said…
I like the option for the tranny to work as automatic or sequential. Nice pic to a car guy.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, it's too bad "sequential" wasn't a prompt.
Cheryl said…
Dufus, you've got that thing in Park. The prompt is Neutral. Geez, do I have to come up there and teach you the difference AGAIN?
Nonamedufus said…
That's the Canadian neutral.
Cheryl said…
Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. Methinks that's the Dufus neutral.
I love the rainbow shine on there... super!
nonamedufus said…
I think that's the reflection of the interior light.
nonamedufus said…
Well at least I didn't put it in R for Race.
Cheryl said…
Are you related to my French-Canadian grandmother? She learned to drive in her 40s or 50s. That woman would put the car in R and stomp on the gas without ever looking behind her to see who or what might be back there. Oddly enough, she only hit the granite post at the end of her driveway once.
nonamedufus said…
No but Maryse might be. Oops, did I say that out loud?
Coco said…
Where is the other half of N? I like this straight photo for neutral.
Cheryl said…
She might! And nope.
nonamedufus said…
For some reason it wore off. Don't know why. I never use neutral.
nonamedufus said…
Whew. Thank goodness. Thought I was in trouble for a minute there.
Cheryl said…
Not with me. Then again, I don't live with Maryse.

The Worst Christmas Present Ever

My pals over at Tribal Blogs are holding their first Blog Carnival today and the subject is the worst Christmas present ever. Remember Ralphie in the movie A Christmas Story ? His, as my readers point out, Aunt Clara sent him a bunny costume. Yeah, it sure sucked to be him. Hey sometimes Christmas doesn't work out for some of us. Look at my grandsons last Christmas. Things went from this... ...to this... Heh, heh. That's one picture my daughter doesn't want to share too widely. So keep quiet about it, okay? When I was a kid, Christmas was such a special time. The snow outside, the tree, the lights, the food, visiting relatives and neighbours. And of course the presents. My own kids loved Christmas too and would pore through the Sears Wish Book Catalogue as soon as it arrived in the mail, dog-earing pages upon pages of pictures of gifts they wanted for Christmas. And they were pretty lucky. They usually got most of what they asked for. Today the grandkids are lucki

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 hav
