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 ;)
meleahrebeccah said…
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.

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…

Tales From The Supermarket

Bob and Brenda worked in the supermarket. They weren't check-out clerks. And they weren't stock-boys. Brenda sure wasn't. And they weren't employees who worked in the fish section or the deli. No. They were on the shelves.

They hadn't been on the shelves very long but in that short time they'd developed a considerably close friendship.

The chatted all day when the store was busy and at night when the store was closed. They talked about everything. The talked about what raw products they came from. The talked about their manufacturing processes. And they talked about the long routes in semi-trailers that brought them to this store.

Oddly enough the one thing they never made clear to one another was just what product each of them was.

One day when Brenda was commenting on their friendship she told Bob she was grateful for their amity. "Are you Tea?" said Bob, pekoe-ing her way. "I thought I was Tea". You're coffee!"

This week's Tw…
