The Burglar Song

Posted by Les Becker on July 30, 2009 in Radio Les, The Landlady |

The Burglar FrogTaken July 29, 2009 with Canon PowerShot A550 Ruby has this motion sensor frog ornament in her breezeway. I don’t like the thing, because I forget that it’s there, and every time I go to visit her it croaks at me and scares the shit out of me. Every single time. I once […]

The Loudest Man I Ever Slept With…

Posted by Les Becker on July 24, 2009 in R.I.P., Real Life, Video... |

Insomnia by Cat I took this video in May, when Sheikh was still sleeping above my head. Not very long ago, he was his usual fat and fluffy self, but then became boney and light as air in a few short weeks. He eventually stopped eating altogether. He hid out most of the time, and […]

Gangsta Geese

Posted by Les Becker on July 21, 2009 in Little Bits of Stupid, Real Life, Video... |

This video was taken in Clergue Park almost three years ago. Those of you familiar with the visage of The Evil Hypnotist as a teen may enjoy the journey back. She was not quite 12 when she was nearly eaten by these monsters. And yes. I sic’ed ’em on her. I make no apology. It […]

65 Years Ago Today, My Dad Wrote This:

Posted by Les Becker on July 19, 2009 in Oh Mother...!, The Father Chronicles |

In three days’ time, my father will have been dead for a year. I have a hard time believing that. Sometimes, it feels as if he’s been gone forever. Other times, I hang up the phone mid-dial, when I remember that he won’t be there to answer whatever question I wanted to ask him – […]

Elbow Grease

Posted by Les Becker on July 15, 2009 in Little Bits of Stupid, The Father Chronicles |

Can’t you just smell the testosterone?Taken July 8, 2009 with Kodak DX7440 My father had a quirky sense of humour. More than anything, at least it seemed to me as a child, he liked to get one over on me. Especially if there were witnesses. And every time he conned me, I fell for it. […]

My Mom is a Biker-Chick…

Maude on her Hog

I drove down to Teeny-Tiny Town today, having had no sleep since… well, I’m not certain when, but I’ve been writing – really writing – for real writing, so No Sleep Disease isn’t exactly a bad thing. This time. On the way down, I saw a small plane tipped over on the four-lane median strip, […]

Hopefully, You’re Not One of the Lost Ones…

Posted by Les Becker on July 7, 2009 in Little Bits of Stupid |

Over 60% of my visitors live in the U.S., whereas, surprisingly (at least to me, anyway), only 11% reside in my own country. What really saddens me, though, is that nearly 10% of my readers don’t have a clue where they are… Random Song-for-the-Day: “Gives You Hell” – The All-American Rejects

The Accidental Fisherman

Posted by Les Becker on July 4, 2009 in Other People's Stories... |

Muddy by the Water I have this buddy who is an incredible cook and a hot-shit photographer. My kid is very partial to him, because he spoils her with pickles. She calls him “Muddy”, and I think he’s rather partial to her, as well, because whenever we walk into his restaurant, he has a bowlful […]
