The What’th of September…

Posted by Les Becker on September 22, 2008 in Photography, Real Life, Wasted Time... |

Ruby needed to know the date the other day, and that’s how she asked it: “This is the what’th of September…?” It struck me as a good title for a blog post because it’s felt like the “what’th of September” for pretty much the entire month. The photo is fairly symbolic for my September, as […]

"The Tattered and Worn"

Tattered and worn is how Ky and I both feel about now. Our move of residence is imminent. As in, Today. I hate moving. I wanted to space it all out over a period of a couple of weeks, and the plan was working for awhile, even. The J.O.B., though, has me worn out. When […]

…Of Wheels and Walk-Abouts

Posted by Les Becker on August 10, 2008 in Photography, Real Life, The Walk-About |

So, the Mini-Van Saga is finally over…. and it turned out to be a trilogy, at that. I was originally going to be leasing The Fly-Mobile, so-named because it was The Fly-Girl’s ride, and she wanted to get rid of it. I liked that mini-van. Turns out, the Fly-Girl did, too, and decided to keep […]

Pink Fantasy…

Posted by Les Becker on April 29, 2008 in Real Life, Zenishness... |

Pink FantasyTaken February 22, 2008 with Canon PowerShot A550 I’m right impressed with myself over this picture. I seriously doubt I’ll get another shot even half this good for the rest of the year. I kind of hope I don’t – I’m really proud of this one. I want to blow it up to about […]

Leap to it, Ladies!

Posted by Les Becker on February 6, 2008 in Real Life, The Landlady |

Blaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. That’s about the only word I can use to describe how I feel right now. It’s not a bad “blah”, so much as a really, really tired one. It’s also not really a bad “tired” – just… ah. No words for it. It’s been a busy last little while. We have made The Hummingbird’s […]

Ruby’s Right – You Can’t Trust That Internet.

Posted by Les Becker on January 28, 2008 in The Father Chronicles |

Team in Winter – Source Unknown I found this info while looking for links for this waaaaaay back story of my dad’s that he told me on Saturday. I’m still shaking my head. Ruby says you can’t trust that Internet – and I guess she’s right, this time, at least. This is not a “Ghost […]

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 […]

Blackberry Summer

Posted by Les Becker on May 30, 2007 in The Landlady |

I have a “Landlady” excerpt. No, I still haven’t got my first funny Landlady Story written yet, but that’s because I’m going to end up with a based-on-a-True-Story kind of piece; which pisses my landlady right off, to tell the truth. I told her my plan, to take her funny memory of her barmaid job […]
