Pause Ponder and Polycephaly

Oh, my, what a big word.

It means having more than one head.

It's been said two heads are better than one.

In this case, though, I'm not so sure.

Although it might give new meaning to necking.

Let's see what folks came up with for our pic this week...

Darling, I only have eyes for... 
(Oh wow! I'd love to have my tires rotated by that redheaded woman)

I really need you to believe me about last night, I was...squirrel!

Honey, I promise that you have my undivided attention!

And our winner would appear to have inside knowledge on what goes on in my house each weekend...

What he's saying: "I really want to hear what you have to say, dear." What his wandering head is thinking: "Hey, I think somebody just said my fantasy football team is ahead!"

Way to go Boom Boom. You be hangin with dufus with that caption. Now, go for a long one.

Congrats Paula. Kinda knew it was a Kafkaesque gesture to enter after seeing what you wrote. Nothing gets between Dufus and anything football, not even the lovely Mrs. D.
Laughing Mom said…
Yay for Boom Boom!
nonamedufus said…
Sure she does. When she brings me a beer.

Boom Boom came up with an explosive caption, don't you think?
Boom Boom Larew said…
Oh, yeah... I've gotten to know you only too well.
Boom Boom Larew said…
Make that the lovely, long-suffering Mrs. D., Cheryl.
Cheryl said…
You are in rare form today. I like it.
Cheryl said…
She told me she pretty much tunes out the puns so I'm not so sure she's as long-suffering as a lesser woman might be.
nonamedufus said…
Pass the opener, would you.
nonamedufus said…
She's so talented. The secret to a perfect marriage. Tune out your spouse.

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 …

Traveling Along Singing A Song

Pete and Paulie were strolling along one day. The sun was bright, the air was cool, the birds chirped crazily in the trees and the squirrels  munched merrily on their nuts. Well not their nuts exactly. Nuts they found on the ground and in the gardens in the park.

Paulie felt so good he began to whistle. It wasn't any tune in particular, just one of those annoyingly tuneless whistles that wandered all over the place. Pete looked at Paulie and he squiggled up his nose and he said "What the hell is that?" Paulie replied "Oh nothing in particular. I'm just happy." "But you're not even whistling a tune" said Pete. Paulie replied "If you're so wise I'd like to see you do better, Pete."

Pete went silent for a moment and seemed to mumble to himself for a moment or two. Then he cleared his throat with a little cough, he opened his mouth and he began to sing.
