A Ruby Kind of Christmas

Posted by Les Becker on December 27, 2007 in The Landlady |

“Tell that Mushy-Fella that this one’s for him.” Ruby, try as she might to insist that she “don’t trust that Internet”, gets a real kick out of the comments I relate to her – especially when they come from Mushy. She laughs the hardest when he begs for a photo, but won’t let me post […]

Creep I’ve been on “forced down-time” for the last few hours. I’m behind on a few too many things, and I was starting to get a little…. “antsy”, lets say. So I took a Life Sabbatical for a few hours…. went driving with The Fly-Girl. Had a couple of drinks. Watched part of a ballet […]

I never knew it had a name… I use it to denote incredulity, sarcasm, flabbergastedness (dontcha just love it when I make up words?!) wonderment, and often, when I don’t know what else to use. I’m impressed to discover that not only is there a name for it, but an actual punctuation-markish symbol to go […]


Licensed to Drive

“A Little More Freedom” I hold in my hand the first concrete, tangible progress in my New and Fearless Life. Today (months earlier than I expected to, I might add), I successfully completed not only my G1 Exit Driving Test, but the G2 Exit, as well. Ontario utilizes a “graduated” licensing program. Here’s how it […]

“Neglected”Taken November 26, 2007 with Canon PowerShot A550 Some very, very important people have been neglected, that is. Real Life, Off-Line, Dirt-Side People. People that I’ve known since I was four years old (and that’s a lot of years, and a lot of memories, ladies and gentlemen). A week ago, I got the yearly invitation […]


I Might Have Just Taken My Favourite Pic of 2007

Posted by Les Becker on December 6, 2007 in Photography |

Well, recently taken, anyway. I’ve had a time-squashing last few weeks, and have yet to get all my pics ‘shopped and uploaded. This particular one, of course, should have been posted the evening of the day I took it. I’m not sure what stopped me. I do know that I had the same set of […]


Now, Where Was I…?

Posted by Les Becker on December 5, 2007 in Real Life |

“All Tuckered Out”Taken November 10, 2007 with Canon PowerShot A550 Apparently, I am becoming a bi-weekly (or is it “monthly”?) blogger. Much of the steps to this new life I’m building have had to take place off-line (I’m driving! I’m driving!), and by the time I get back in the house and get comfortable again, […]
