Just some cactus laying around.

I got this pin for the new "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men
Tell No Tales" movie with my Disney Reward points. Including
shipping and handling it was........ freeeeeeee! I didn't really mean
to order it. I was just experimenting, going through the ordering
process just to see how much it would be, out of curiosity, when
all of a sudden, it was ordered.

I like the pin okay, but I have been saving my points for years for
something slightly more... epic. It's alright, I have a lot more points
left. At any rate, I cannot wait to see the new movie.

Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives.
His "Way Out West" CD. I watch Marty Stuart on RFDTV.
He has a great show. Lot's of great country. Marty was
playing with Lester Flat when he was 14 years old. 14.

My favorite Superlative is Kenny Vaughan. Kenny plays
lead and acoustic guitar. Here is a guy with major history
too. He has been playing with Marty Stuart since 2001. He
has played with everybody from Alan Jackson to Porter
Wagoner to The Pretenders.

I have to listen to this CD a few more times, but so far
I am pretty much liking it.

I picked up a few things.
I love the colors.

So I am walking around down in town and all of
a sudden I look up and see these trees just rustling
a bit with the cool breeze. It dawns on me what
a beautiful day it is. I love these moments.

 I had seen "Resident Evil: The Final Chapter" in the theater and couldn't
wait for it to come out so I could add it to my collection and watch it again.
I got it, I watched it, and I enjoyed it more the second time. It is still not
a classic, but if you are a fan, it is a lot of fun. If you are not a fan, I would
skip it. You will not like it. But hey, like a said before, Milla and weapons
is a win.

 I mean, she can throw a full magazine in the air, break a guys arm, eject her
empty magazine and kick it into another guy's face, kick a third guys butt,
catch the full mag that she threw in the air, throw it into her pistol and start
shooting again. THAT my friends, is t-a-l-e-n-t.

I really hope that "The Final Chapter" will go the way of
"Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter" and indeed not
be, the final chapter.

And I was looking in the pile that Target likes to call a "Clearance Area"
and found a great deal. This Victorinox Camper knife for $11.98. That is
at least half off of most retail prices. In some cases it is MORE than half off.
This is a good deal. The saw on this knife is spectacular. I usually pass
on any SAK with a corkscrew as corkscrews are worthless to me, but $11.98?
I will put it in my knife box unopened for the day it might be needed.

~ Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales ~
I took this picture of the poster at the Regal Theater.
I cannot wait for this one. Soon. Aye.

"Pirate's life."

Again, I don't know anything about motorcycles, but
to me this one looks real nice and I would gladly have it.

 I like to always have some Bush's Grillin' Beans on hand. They
have several flavors. This one (and my favorite) is Southern Pit
Barbecue. They are great on their own, but I like to doctor them up
a bit. I usually dice and throw in some bell peppers. I slice up some
 jalapeno peppers and throw them in there too. I also add to taste a bit
(or a bunch) of Bull's-Eye Original Flavor Barbecue Sauce.

 Mmmmmm doggies!

And the piece of resistance is Dave's Insanity Sauce. It adds
heat, not necessarily flavor. And it is HOT. Dave's can be found
at most stores that sell foods from around the globe, or on the web.

It is really good if you heat all of this ahead of time and let it set
for a few hours or overnight in the refrigerator.

"Stagecoach: The Texas Jack Story" starring Trace Adkins. Questionable
quality, says I. But, you never know. At first it was upwards of 15 bucks.
Nope. Then it went closer to 14. Nope. Then $9.99. Nope. Today it was
$7.50. Okay, Judd Nelson and Kim Coates made $7.50 a go. From what
I have seen, the hardware looks pretty good. We will see.

It is probably ghastly.

....later that night.
Okay, since I said that Stagecoach might be ghastly I owe it to the movie
to comment on it. I watched it tonight and it, in fact, was... NOT ghastly.
I really liked it. It was not a great movie. It was slow, some of the acting was
not that good. But it was sincere. Trace Adkins did his best I am thinking.
Kim Coates is awesome. He plays an ass oh so well. This movie is NOT
his first time doing that. The bonus to look for is Judd Nelson as Sid. He is a
man of low character, an outlaw. Or IS he? He is funny and he is almost
lovable. It was Judd's first (and maybe only) Western.

For as slow as it was, I was kept interested the whole time. The dialogue did
that. The shootouts were okay. I am going to rate this one 5.5 out of 10 bottles
of Apple Jack Whiskey. As I watched this movie I could not believe that I was
liking it.  I paid $7.50. It was almost worth that. I guess that's all I got.

Totally out of character for me. T-o-t-a-l-l-y. But I saw the preview
for "Ride Along" on two other movies I have and it actually made me
laugh out loud, both times. So for some odd and strange reason, I wanted
to buy it. My son likes these type of movies so if I don't end up liking it,
I will give it to him. Not a total loss. $5.00.

(Ice Cube of N.W.A. starring as law enforcement is
kind of weird, but we will leave it alone.)

I bought a new Light My Fire titanium spork to put in
my purse. This one will replace the Snow Peak spork
(inset) that I have carried for a number of years. I wanted
to try the different design. Like I've written before, folks
laugh at me for carrying these things, but while they are
making a mess and burning their fingers, I am eating.

Oh, and I am not saying that the Snow Peak is not
terrific, because it IS, I am just experimenting.
