Bloggers Say the Darn’dest Things…

Posted by Les Becker on October 8, 2008 in Blog-Family, Little Bits of Stupid |

Bloggers are pretty freaking funny. Lucky for me, ‘cuz I’ve been short of time of late, and recuperating after finishing The Waitress, the Whiskey & the Handcuffs. So I spent a little of what time was left over after “re-charging” (ahem…*) picking through my comments of last year. I’m paying homage to a bunch of […]

The Big “Extra Copy” Caption Contest!

Posted by Les Becker on February 11, 2008 in Artsy Fartsy, Contests, Little Bits of Stupid, The Big "Extra Copy" Caption Contest |

Do you remember when I blogged about receiving an autographed copy of Natalie D’Arbeloff’s book of cartoons, “The God Interviews”? Well! A funny thing happened…. My Betchiest of Betches, Cardiogirl, was going through some tough ol’ crap at about that time. I had this idea that reading “The God Interviews” would cheer her up. So, […]

Work Boots ‘n Dancin’ Shoes

Posted by Les Becker on January 16, 2008 in The Landlady |

Elle, from Maxwell the Tattooed Boy and Other Astounding Joys, wrote about her grandmother in a post yesterday. Her Grandma was a Flapper in the Roaring Twenties, a time that fascinates me (I’m in – okay, mostly out of, lately – the midst of a novelish-type project about those days).Suzi wondered in Elle’s comments what […]

Great Aunt Emma

Posted by Les Becker on October 22, 2007 in Oh Mother...! |

I must apologize to the memory of my Great Aunt Emma, for this horrible photo of her painting. It’s a water-colour, framed behind glass, hanging in an awkward niche in my parents’ small space. To get the shot at all, I had to jam myself between the fake gas fireplace and the stereo stand, straddling […]

Ruby Strikes Again…

Posted by Les Becker on June 13, 2007 in The Landlady |

…strikes me funny that is. Another little collection from “The Landlady”. “She still hasn’t forgiven me for that time I hit her over the head with a shovel.” “I was black and blue from all the pokin’ around.” (About a nurse drawing blood…) “I had the stupidest dream. It was Christmas, and all these dead […]

Struck Me Funny, It Did…

Posted by Les Becker on June 6, 2007 in The Landlady |

Ruby has gotten used to me writing down everything she says, now. She even seems to be looking forward to reading all the stuff I’m making up about her, if I ever get it printed and bring it over. I hope she still feels that way once she reads it. Contrary to what I told […]
