If you don't like the video, hit the Pause button

I was telling Augie that he needed to stop what he was doing and come with me. He didn't want to. He said, "I'm pausing you. I'm pausing your show." I totally get it. I may try that next time someone at work is going on about whatever I don't want to hear about. Meanwhile...


Mister May of Maine is handyman Mike Goodwin. In case you haven't been following these monthly pinups, they're from a calendar created by the Greater York (Maine) Region Chamber of Commerce to support local causes. I snagged this prize in a giveaway from Eva at Wrestling with Retirement and I've been sharing nicely, as my mom taught me. Mr. Goodwin looks a bit nervous, so good for him, taking a risk for charity. (Click on the photo for larger version.)

I would love it if we could pause people! That would be so fun! Uh, Mr. Goodwin does look nervous. Poor guy!

Similar to the pausing of a person, when my daughter was in middle school, she came home one day laughing cause her teacher got annoyed with another kid in the class and said "be gone" and I will always remember that. There are so many times when I would've liked to have said those words to someone!

Mr. May does look a little nervous. How funny.
I think Augie may be onto something...I love how his mind works.

I'd like a fast forward, pause and DO OVER button, for me.

Mister May just doesn't do it for me.

I told my grandson....hey wait don't go I have your tv show on and he said "just pause it" I didn't even know he knew what that ment! He's only 3.

Poor guy, he looks very very nervous.

Mr. May better be careful with that saw! And it is amazing what kids pick up that we don't even know about. Of COURSE pausing is something he's heard ever since he was born...

New England men are naturally shy about showing their legs ~ they're so white they're blinding. Gotta love these guys for baring those shiners for a cause.

lol--love the fellow! I was just telling someone today that I finally have that feeling like I'd like to "rewind" some....does that mean I'm getting old??

Pause button is fab for a lot of things. I just wish I could use it on some people. Great post.

He looks like a nice guy, a little shy but being a good sport. It's nice they didn't just pick hotties for the calendar as that would have been too boring. This guy is worth talking about!

I look forward to these guys every month..I agree with DJan..he looks nervous..perhaps he doesn't really know how to use that saw. Thanks for the peek at MR May..I wonder if these Guys know they ended up on the internet? :)

I like the idea of pausing people. Maybe a few pundits that I know.

Calendar pinups sure have changed...
