~ Happy National Pig Day, 2024! ~

Over at one of our favorite places, the Indian Store, they
have some nice busts representing Native Americans
of various tribes. The gentleman above is of the
Arikara tribe out of Missouri.

And these gentleman (starting on the left) are from
the Apache tribe out of Arizona, the Chinook tribe
out of Washington and Oregon and the
Piegan tribe of Northern Montana.

A way long time ago when my son was little and my
beloved stepfather was still with us, I took my first
trip to the Gene Autry Museum of Western Heritage.
The museum was very young then. While there I bought
this greeting card in the Museum Store as it
reminded me of my son and his grandpa as they
rode around The Ranch on the ATVs.

I framed it and we gave it to my stepfather. He hung
it up and it has been there ever since. It is a
great picture and a wonderful memory.

This fungus is growing on a log around here.
I don't know what kind (split gill?) it is.
I'm not in love with fungi.

I spotted a simple purple flower today.

Yep, I am trying to not collect stuff like this anymore
and for the most part I have been very successful at it.
But when I spotted this Friday the 13th Part 3 3D poster
box at Walmart, I knew I would KICK myself later if
I did not pick it up. I LOVE F13 and Part 3 is
my favorite of the series.

So I decided to use some of the birthday gift
money I had saved to buy it.

The box it comes in is actually very nice. It is collector
friendly as the front cover hinges open and closed
using a magnet. No ripping stuff apart.

This is the 3D box in the flesh. Now, do
I display it in the box? Or do I 86 the box
and hang the thing on the wall. Oh man. This
part is always difficult.

Walmart had other movie boxes as well. I remember seeing
boxes representing IT and Child's Play. There were probably
about four others, I cannot remember. The kind of tricky thing
with THIS box is that the blood you see dripping and pooling
there? The two little "blood" pieces come separately and it is
up to us to place them in the correct spots.

The bottom one was not too difficult, but the knife tip drip was
a bit of a bear. I had to use the tiniest bit of white glue to keep
it in place once I was able to get it into position.
You just gotta be prepared for that.

I really like this box. Not sorry I bought it.
 I mean, Part 3. That's my jam.

Look for 3DEEP VHS by Culturefly.

These Starkist Snack-To-Go Tuna Salad Kits are
pretty good. But at 130 calories and 3.5 grams of
fat (1.5g saturated fat) you don't want to eat a lot
of them. But every once in a while, a great treat.

My little ghost pepper plant that I pruned on Friday, February 2
is making a comeback. I really didn't think it would. But it is
and I guess we start all over again. Maybe this time it will be
heartier and actually give us a pepper to try. That was the
goal. Bottom line? She's giving us another go so let's DO this.

(Originally started from seed on Wednesday,
June 21, 2023. As I still have some seeds left
I may start another one in a month or so.)
