I'm guessing your car goes WAY faster than mine.
nonamedufus said…
Well I don't have an axe under my front seat to weigh me down.
mike said…
I'm glad you didn't take the picture showing the speedometer hitting 100km/hr
nonamedufus said…
Maybe I'll do that for Day 30.
Ziva said…
Huh, how come the speedometer is NOT hitting 100 km/h?
Laughing Mom said…
Maybe it idles really fast...
nonamedufus said…
Yeah, that's it. Like me.
Ah ha. That's what I was wondering too.


Busted, nonames :).
nonamedufus said…
Ok, ok the care was parked in my driveway. But the ignition switch was on. It's all about potential.
nonamedufus said…
Unlike you I still have gas. Um, my car that is.
nonamedufus said…
Well I won't discuss the other gas. That's personal.
Nicky said…
Is it me or does that red light on the right look like a camera?
nonamedufus said…
It's you. Well the red light on the right isn't you, of course. You now what I mean.
Margaret said…
Are you parked? I wanted to see you snap a shot of you going 180 mph (I don't know what that is in kilometers - you do kilos right? Aren't we the only idiots using miles?). I wonder if cops let you take pictures of them handing you a ticket.
nonamedufus said…
Yes. Yes. Yes. I don't know.
nonamedufus said…
I think it's the battery indicator light.
Katherine said…
Ha ha ...faster than my Nissan minivan lol!
Cheryl P. said…
I like the Margaret's idea. Let's see if the local cops there are open to the idea of having their picture taken to illustrate "fast".
nonamedufus said…
Well, if thinks don't work out can you spearhead my bail efforts?
Lauren said…
Did you crop, sharpen or retouch? I think there should be a disclaimer with each picture. It looks like the car is staring back at you.


Love the Groucho quote. Never heard it before.
Jamie Baker said…
Race you to the corner!!
ladyV said…
vroom, vroom. don't get a ticket. ;)
Coco said…
I can't see your photo for today for some reason. It went away too fast????
Coco said…
I was able to see it from IE. Good to know you took this when you park. :)
Cheryl P. said…
Sure thing, I would be right on it.
Cheryl said…
I do love a little hyperbole to start my day!


(Are you going to post PPP over on some other site you own? I'm just starting to get the hang of it & I'll surely lose my edge if I have to wait until November to play again.)
nonamedufus said…
That's weird. Are you on a computer or phone?
nonamedufus said…
Great! Yes, I took this standing still.
nonamedufus said…
You're on. Let me just put on my seatbelt.
nonamedufus said…
No, none of those things. Used my trusty iPhone camera.
nonamedufus said…
Ok, then. I'm on it.
nonamedufus said…
I'm gonna post it right here, this afternoon.

My Back Pages - November

I read five books last month bringing my year to date total to 61, well past the 50 I estimated at the beginning of the year. And I've yet to get through December.

The month started out with The Nix, the debut novel by Nathan Hill which has been receiving a lot off positive reviews. In it Hill flips back and fourth from the 1968 Chicago protests and 2011 in a desperate search for the truth behind why his mother abandoned him at an early age. In between Hill takes on politics, the media and addiction as well as other aspects of society. It's a well-spun tale and I quite enjoyed reading it.

Next up was the auto-biographical I Am Brian Wilson of Beach Boys fame. This was somewhat of a scattered affair but an interesting read nonetheless. Wilson - or his ghostwriter - however is no Hemingway.

Then it was on to one of my favourite authors, Ian Rankin and his latest tale of now retired Inspector John Rebus, Rather Be The Devil. I never tire of these stories and this is the 21st in …

 Lust and Wonder - Aug…

I Do

It was noon. The sun shone brightly in the sky. Birds chirped merrily in the trees. The sounds of traffic drifted up from the street. George picked up his keys and headed for the apartment door. This was a special day. Perhaps the most special day of his life to date. Today was the day he would ask Georgina to marry him. Georgina was his girlfriend. French. From France.

He'd covered all the bases. He'd bought the ring, a bouquet of flowers and a set of knee pads. If she said "no" at least they'd have a good laugh over the knee pads. If she said yes they'd remember him down on his knees this day forever.

He grabbed everything, locked the apartment door and descended the stairs. The restaurant was nearby so he decided to walk. As he waited on the corner for the light to change he thought of spending the rest of his life with Georgina. Not that he was being presumptuous but he had a good sense she felt the same way too. He was sure it was kismet. And besides wi…
