I bought this Saint Christopher pendant at the Family
Christian Store a few years ago and it has been riding
in my wallet ever since. 


Saint Christopher is the patron Saint of Travelers
and his story is very cool.

A scale replica of Obi-Wan Kenobi's Lightsaber
from "Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith".

I have four of these replica lightsabers and truth be
told, if they were separated from their stands and
mixed up, I would not know which lightsaber belonged
to which Jedi.

And oh man, I need to dust the inside of my cabinet.
Living in these mountains means dust everywhere
all of the time.

My mom told me a long time ago that if I find a
penny on the ground (or any coin) that I should pick
it up and keep it because it is good luck. So that is
what I do and I keep them in a little leather pouch that
I bought at the Renaissance Faire in Agoura California
in the early 80's.

Have they brought me good luck? Better luck than
the the folks who lost the pennies I am thinkin'.

~ Happy Friday the 13th, April 2018! ~
(For this Friday the 13th I have a picture of my
Mezco Cinema of Fear: 3.75-Inch Jason Voorhees.)

We used to go to June Lake and surrounding areas opening day
fishing and just whenever we could get up there in general. We would
go through Bishop all the time. Bishop is a fantastic little town with
so much history. This is a postcard from the Starlight Motel in
Bishop. This must be from about 1966 or 67.

 
They had TV sets too, back before cable. I know it seems
kind of plastic, and some folks cannot imagine that staying
in these little motels was as cool as it was, but just like drive-in
theaters of old, it was VERY fun.
The fishing was good too. Rainbow trout. OH yeah.

An old pass to the 20th Century Fox lot.

Happy Easter!
The Easter Bunny came around this year and left one
of his pals... Carrot Patch Pete. And let me tell you,
Pete was tasting mighty fine this year. MIGHTY fine.


This maze was on the back of Mr. Pete's box. I took a picture
of it just in case you might want to give it a try for yourself
(because I am into sharing like that). Of course, you can
kind of see where I did the maze already, and I got
it totally right, the first time. Not bragging.

~ Hey, the dude never wanted to be a hero. ~
I have read about this movie in several places over
the last few months. It looks like it might be interesting
and I need a Western fix, REAL bad, so I picked it up 
when I spotted it at Walmart for a price that is likely to
be a'way lower in the coming months.

The Ballad of Lefty Brown starring Bill Pullman and Peter
Fonda. I am betting that Mr. Fonda has a pretty small part
in this. We will see. It's always a gamble with movies like
this. They could be incredible or incredibly bad or if it is 
incredibly bad and you are lucky, it will be
incredibly bad good.

Pennies have been kind of tight lately and I was really trying
to choose a movie that I really want to see. It was a tough
decision this go 'round.
