Merry Christmas and any other suitable winter seasonal holiday everyone.

Pause Ponder and Pugilists

A little bit of housekeeping before we get to this week's winner. This will be the last Pause Ponder and Pun for a little while. In fact this will be my last post for a while. And that's not all. You may not see me for a bit on Facebook or Twitter.  This will be interesting. Easier said than done but that's my intent. Nothing's wrong. Things couldn't be better, in fact. But a couple of trips with Christmas in the middle means real life will put me out of cyberspace commission well into January. So we'll see you sometime in the new year. I hope you all have a Merry Christmas.

On to this week's PPP. This was our pic…


And here are our Honourable Mentions…

Pause Ponder and Pun #157

I'll bet you guys'll be wrestling with this one.

Go ahead.

Leave a caption.

Come back Saturday for the rematch…



In the meantime if you want sumo captioning craziness (see what I did there?) drop by Screaming Me-Me's place.

Bibliofile - November

November was a very productive month in terms of reading for me. I went cover to cover with 9 books. Wait a minute! Wait a minute! Ding, Ding. Ding. Ding.



Holy crap, I've cracked 100 books since January. At the end of October, I'd read 92. Add the 9 from November and I now stand at 101. That's a far cry from the 30 I estimated on Goodreads at the beginning of the year.

Again, detective novels formed the majority of the books I read. I zipped through the 6th and the 7th in the Kurt Wallander series by Swedish Author Henning Mankell, the 6th in the Jack Reacher series by Lee Child,  the 11th in the Elvis Cole series by Robert Crais and the first in the Harry Hole series by newly discovered Jo Nesbo. These were all good. I quite enjoy this genre. My only problem is that these guys have all written so many books I wonder if I'll ever catch up with them.

A highlight of the month had to be Eminent Hipsters by Donald Fagen. Fagen is half the creative duo known as Steely Dan.…
