I have plenty of those too!
Paula Wooters said…
You just had to remind us of those rules, didn't you? What a Dufus!

Experience has taunt me to measure about seven times before I cut once.
nonamedufus said…
It's a dirty job but someone has to do it.
Margaret said…
Nice angle, Doof. I meant the shot, not the rulers themselves, although those are nice too, I guess.
nonamedufus said…
I get it. Angle. Good one.
Laughing Mom said…
With all of those you can't have a disagreement on how long something is ;)

Interesting take on this one! Nice move, John!
nonamedufus said…
Oh whether or not it's level.
Ziva said…
Hah, great job, noname "I wanna be a boss" dufus! A word of advice, when you decide to be a boss, you might want to trade those in for an entirely new set of rules. And maybe a whip. ;)
nonamedufus said…
How about this approach?

Clever little play on the "rules" prompt. I love how inventive you are for taking pictures around the house.
Monique Renae said…
More measuring sticks!! A man after my own heart!
Cheryl said…
I'm so damn glad I didn't go with this one (one of my first thoughts). Too many RULES floating around out there and they're all beautiful. Lovely arrangement. Did you do that all by yourself?
nonamedufus said…
Just trying to stay on the straight and narrow.
nonamedufus said…
Ah, I'm glad I measured up to your expectations.
nonamedufus said…
I did indeed. Took several shots but this was my fave.
Linda Medrano said…
Nice photo of a bunch of rulers. I might have photographed Saddam but he's dead.
Coco said…
Rulers again but those are for professionals. I like the degree of your photo.
nonamedufus said…
Yeah and the travel costs are kind of prohibitive.
nonamedufus said…
Thanks. I think I have all the angles covered.
Jamie Baker said…
You rule, Dufus. And definitely are not a tool.
nonamedufus said…
It's a slow process...inch by inch.
ladyV said…
you rule, indeed. and what is that balance thing called.
nonamedufus said…
A level. No shit, I'm really on the level.
Lauren said…
I always thought you were a level-headed guy. Love how you staged the shot.
I didn't even THINK in this direction... GENIUS!!!!
MikeWJ said…
Nice photo, NoName.

And I hope you don't mind if I call you NoName. Most people call you Dufus, but I feel like we're on a first-name basis being friends and all. If not, please let me know, and I'll call you Mr. Dufus.
MikeWJ said…
Punny, Lauren. He'll love it, trust me.
nonamedufus said…
I do, I really do.
nonamedufus said…
I come fro a long "line" of level-headed guys.
nonamedufus said…
Aw, shucks. Genius, eh?
nonamedufus said…
Hey, it's my name Mr. Whitman-Jones.

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

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
