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.

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
