how many points for a leaner?
nonamedufus said…
Leaners are good for 1 point. Bet you didn't think I knew that.
Laughing Mom said…
ACK! It's upside down! All of the luck is running out of it! Quick! Turn it the right way!!!
Danielle Batog said…
I agree...you need to turn it around!!!!!!!!!!
nonamedufus said…
Really? There's a right side up for horseshoes? Who knew.
nonamedufus said…
That's funny, my horse didn't seem to have a problem.
MikeWJ said…
I didn't know horseshoes had to face a certain direction to work. Unless you're throwing them, I guess. But this one's pretty interesting, all rusted and kind of round for a horseshoe. Good thinking, my friend.

I don't know where this came from. I found it in the work room hanging on a nail. It brought me good luck because it provided me with a photo for today.

ooooooooooooooh! I love horseshoes!
nonamedufus said…
This one's very old. The longer I look at it the more I go all steely eyed.
Barb Paige said…
what a neat pic...
mike said…
I have a horseshoe lying around too and I have no idea where I got it from. What's yours doing on the floor?
Ziva said…
Where's the rest of it?
ladyV said…
that's where i left my shoe. thanks nonamedufus!
nonamedufus said…
I put it there in order to take the picture.
nonamedufus said…
The horse is in the back yard.
nonamedufus said…
You could always stand on your head to look at it.
Cheryl said…
Good gawd Man! Turn that thing over. STAT! They're hung upside down for a reason ~ so the luck doesn't run out. You need all the good fortune you can get.
nonamedufus said…
No problem, Trigger.
Cheryl said…
No I couldn't. This photo a day thing has aged me to the point that things I was doing in late September are now impossible. I don't miss the headstands as much as I miss the handstands and back bends.

I don't think the horse was lucky unless it got a new pair of shoes.
Boom Boom Larew said…
What day is it? I think I missed a day. Must've been all that tequila I had to drink in order to make it this far in the photo challenge. I'll need some serious luck to make it til November, so thanks for the lucky horseshoe.
nonamedufus said…
Wow, aren't you nimble.
nonamedufus said…
Pass that bottle over here, woman.
Jamie Baker said…
I like horseshoes. This one looks cool and antiquey.
Cheryl said…
Quite. I'm a freak of nature.
Oh nooooo! The luck is running out! :)
nonamedufus said…
It's quite old. You should see the horse.
nonamedufus said…
This may explain a few things.

Sometimes You're the Bug...

I don't know who first came up with it but it's a marvellous saying. Sometimes you're the windshield, sometimes you're the bug. It's like sometimes you win, sometimes you lose...but far more descriptive. I mean have you ever had it happen to you? You're driving along as the sun's just gone down. You turn on your lights in the dusk and the bugs just seem to flock to your windshield, drawn as if by a magnet. Now, of course, you're faced with a choice. Do you just leave them be or do you flip on the windshield wipers and shoot windshield wiper fluid at your windshield. If it's ever happened to you, you know this is a no-win situation. Trying to clean them off usually makes it worse. You better hope you find a gas station...or a guy at the side of the road who wants a dollar...with a squeegee. That's the only way. And, of course, the bug never wins. It's always the windshield that comes out on top. When I was a kid, though, riding my bik

The Polka Dot Door

A long time ago, when I was 22, my first child was born.  That kid grew up on a little Canadian kid's show called Polka Dot Door, produced by the TV Ontario network.  And Dad, more often than not, sat through those shows with his little one. Nine or so years later when a brother, and a year after that when a sister came along number one son was moving on to Knight Rider and The Dukes of Hazzard.  But there was a nice overlap where his siblings picked up where he had left off with Polka Dot Door.  And Dad was right there to welcome them. So you're looking at a Polka Dot Door veteran.  The show began in 1971 and ran to 1993.  I didn't watch the full run but I did get in my fair share.  The formula was pretty simple.  A young male and female host, which seemed to change every week, sang songs, told stories, made crafts and generally did their best stimulate little brains.  The show opened as follows... Imagination Day!  Oh boy!  You know what happens on Imagination D
