From my 2010 visit to the Gene Autry Museum of Western
Heritage is this photo of a beautiful Slim Jim holster circa 1850.
1850... Man... That is 31 years before the infamous Gunfight at
the O.K. Corral.... This is just amazing. Wyatt Earp was two
years old. Nine years before Billy the Kid was born. Butch Cassidy
was not born until sixteen years later. Mark Twain was only fifteen
years old. It would be eleven years until the start of the Civil War.
Anyway, you get the idea. This holster has been around a while.

Oooooohhhh yeah. My son bought for me another
bunch of buttery flavor popcorn topping. He knew
that at this point in time I did not want to spend as
much as it cost to get one of these. So he
surprised me with a container.
He did the same thing back on Sunday, November
17th, 2013, as I posted then. The difference between that
time and THIS time is now I know how much not to use
and it will last a lot longer. I have not had any since then.
Ladies and Gentlemen, we are
back in the popcorn business.
Cool kids are cool.

Some notes about William Matthew "Bill" Tilghman.
From my visit to the Gene Autry Western Heritage
Museum, Griffith Park, California.... 2012.
A few of Mr. Tilghman's belongings. Nice.
And a closer view of his pistol as that's the way I roll.
The museum does not specify the exact make and
caliber of the pistol, and I will not hazard a guess.

I went to Walmart and they had a bunch of leftover DVDs and
a few Blu-rays at Black Friday prices. One or two good deals
to be had.
The pricing system was posted thusly.
As you can see I found "The Purge: Election Year", "Split"
and "Deadpool" for just $3.96 each. I needed The Purge to
complete my collection. And I had seen Split in the theater
but never wanted to pay full price for it and Deadpool?
I watched it tonight and I really liked it. Funny violence.
I paid $5.00 for Sixteen Candles. Not a
Black Friday thing.
This public service flyer came with Deadpool.
"Hey, you pop the corn and I'll check my
bag of beans!" Just another movie night.

This is a Sleeping Beauty bank that we bought at
The Emporium on Main Street at Disneyland so
many years ago I don't know when it was.
I mean, SO many years ago.
It scares me how many years ago.
Sleeping Beauty and Belle are my favorite Princesses.
This bank is made out of a hard rubber of sorts. Vinyl?
Something like that.
