Broad Comedy: ROAD DOGS

Road Dogs, by the immortal Elmore Leonard (who self has worshipped for many years, and who she can never thank enough for giving Timothy Olyphant the chance to strut his stuff in a white Stetson as Raylan Givens, in six seasons of the TV series Justified which was based on a series of Elmore Leonard novels), p. 195:

“Can you tell me,” the monsignor said, “why it’s been twenty-seven years since you’ve been to confession?”

“The last time before this,” Little Jimmy said, “I was in prison in Cuba for a crime that didn’t hurt no one. I was afraid I would die at the hands of prisoners desiring to make love to me in an excessive manner. But I was save by my boss, also in that prison, Combinado, before it could happen.”

The monsignor said, “And this time, why are you confessing?”

“I want to be on the safe side, confess to missing Mass fourteen-hundred times,” Little Jimmy said, “because I’m going to dinner in honor of my boss. There is a possibility he could have the fortune-teller, who’s preparing the food, poison me.”

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

Still focusing on this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge: HARMONY.

This is a ceramic piece that hangs outside one of the metal-working sheds at the Mendocino Arts Center. Fish and sand and oceans.

2nd ROAD DOGS Quote of the Day

Self is liking this Elmore Leonard book more and more.

She had to force herself through the first 50 or so pages (in a book that is only 250 pages long, this is indeed a great trial).

But when the little guy Cundo Rey is released from prison, and he is mean to his wife Dawn, who Jack Foley just happens to be sleeping with, things get a lot more twisted and that is when self started to like it.

p. 158:

  • “Lou, when you’re young, you never think of making a mistake.”

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
