To Live Forever – Part 3

Posted by Les Becker on May 29, 2011 in Short Fiction, To Live Forever |

…the final segment of a story written for my high school newspaper in 1983. By rights, I should wait to post this ’til Christmas, considering the theme, but I’m sure y’all would rather see a photo of me at Christmas with a wreath, or a herd of reindeer on my head. In case you missed […]

I Don’t Care HOW “May” It Is – Today Came Right Out of October…

Posted by Les Becker on May 24, 2011 in Photography |

No word of a lie – I keep expecting to see Trick-or-Treaters outside. It’s F-ing cold. I can deal quite gracefully with warm weather in January, but when you start messing with a Northerner’s perception of “summer”, well… now you know why Canadians drink.

She’s Still a Camera Hog…

Posted by Les Becker on May 23, 2011 in Photography |

If Patchouli sees a camera, she will pose for as long as you will sit there and take shots. Every now and again, I’ll get a really nice one like this – sometimes I can catch her in a “candid” moment, but those are rare – Patchouli really is a Prima Donna when it comes […]

In case you missed it… To Live Forever: Part One *** For the first time in his twenty-one years, death had touched Cecil Walters’ life. He didn’t know how to take it; he […]

Some Things are Made to Be Destroyed…

Posted by Les Becker on May 20, 2011 in Artsy Fartsy, The Landlady |

This is a “pulled” or “drop-stitch” scarf. It’s knit on 4 needles and then, when binding off, every second stich is just dropped off the needle. Yank on it really hard, and it “pulls” down into a nice fluffy scarf. I made this at Ruby’s while were watching the Blue Jays play. Well… Ruby watches […]

The Washer-Woman Went AWOL…

Posted by Les Becker on May 17, 2011 in Little Bits of Stupid, Photography, Real Life |

It’s Day 2 of my Holidays. No, I don’t miss work. I do kind of miss the spider, though. I met him/her on my lunch break a while back and he/she was good company. I have great big plans for the next few days and so far, I haven’t done any of it other than […]

This is a Picture of “Happy”…

Posted by Les Becker on May 16, 2011 in Artsy Fartsy, Photography, Wall Panels, Zenishness... |

This is a close-up shot of one of my attic wall panels. It’s not finished quite yet, but every time I look at it, it makes me smile. It’s the perfect pic for this post as Louie Da Boss made me very happy this week by “forcing” me to take 4 paid days off. In […]

To Live Forever – Part 1

Posted by Les Becker on May 15, 2011 in Short Fiction, To Live Forever |

I’m going to take a page out of Cardiogirl’s book – er… an entry out of Cardiogirl’s blog – and reprint something from Way-Back-When. In her case, Cardiogirl posts excerpts from her diary, written when she was a teen. Me, I’m gonna post fiction; a short story in three parts, originally published in my high […]

The Surgery of Hilary Federwhore

Posted by Les Becker on May 12, 2011 in J.O.B., Little Bits of Stupid, Photography, Real Life |

I’m sure I could do a little digging and find the last photo taken by my Canon PowerShot A550 (named Hilary Federwhore, because every camera should have a name to match the bitch’s personality), if I bothered to. I do know, without the search, that it was some time before February 1 of 2010, which […]
