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.
Lauren said…
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.

My Back Pages - October

Well, folks, I read seven (count 'em) seven books in October. One I didn't finish but even at that I hit the magic number 50 I estimated for myself by the end of the year. The six books I successfully waded through were, firstly, What Happened, Hillary Clinton's book on her bid for the Presidency. I''m a bit of a political junkie so I get off on this stuff but still it kinda struck me as one long whine over losing.
Next up was the excellent Canyon of Dreams: The Magic and Music of Laurel Canyon. Laurel Canyon was the fabled area outside of Los Angeles where many musicians and artists lived. Known as a 60s enclave, the book takes a look at just who lived there over the last 80 years. A fascinating read.
Next up was Lightfoot, a biography of Canadian folk singer Gordon Lightfoot. He may have been responsible for some iconic folk songs but he was also quite the womanizer and boozer. Enough said.
Then I read Dan Brown's new tome Origin, the fifth in the Robert Lan…

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 have Decem…
