When I first moved into my own home some blah blah years ago,
the first item to greet me on the front lawn was this rock. This rock was officially dubbed:

The Butt Rock.

 I added the quarter for perspective. As difficult times have befallen me, I no longer live at the house of Butt Rock, but I still have access to The Butt Rock and should I want it, I could have it. I have nothing but love for The Butt Rock (pretty much). Maybe we should have named it Medusa's Boyfriend's Butt Rock.

I don't know about this. I mean, buying corn on the cob out of some
ice chest in front of a little store at some campground. I have a
feeling this corn on the cob is either A) Really REALLY good, or B) Really
REALLY going to create gastric issues.

I think I would pass and try to find a Kentucky Fried Chicken somewhere
in the next town. Or MAYBE I would just go into the store
and buy some corn chips.

I like knives.
I have been collecting and carrying a knife of one sort or another for many years.
I collect and carry knives as tools. Many people look at knives and the
first thing that they say is, "OH yeah, THAT could stab somebody GOOD."

Please please please. That is not what my knives are all about. Knives are tools and some knives are very beautiful just like a fine firearm. I don't have any really high end custom knives. I cannot afford them. What I do have are some very nice production quality knives. Ayep.

Here is my latest and a pretty nice knife that I have been carrying for about
four months now. It sits in an easily accessible place in my purse.

This is a Benchmade 555HG Mini-Griptillian Plain Edge (as
opposed to semi or full serrated) knife. Above is the closed position which
measures 3.87 inches long.

The Mini-Griptillian in it's opened position has an
overall length of 6.78's inches. The blade is made of 154CM stainless steel. It is hollowground and sports a modified sheepsfoot shape. The blade length is 2.91 inches. It stays in the open position by way of an AXIS Lock and feels very secure. The pocket clip (not visible) can be reversed for right or left handed carry (tip up only). This is an awesome knife and was designed by Mel Pardue.

 Anyway, just kind of an intro to illustrate that I am a knife person.

Out at the Autry Museum of Western Heritage in Los Angeles, in the courtyard
called "Trails West", the simulated rocks climb right up the outer wall of the
building. I think that's the coolest thing. The top photo is from below
the rocks.

I don't spect that many folks actually view just this portion of
the courtyard. So this picture from a balcony above is a view of
something (perhaps) not often appreciated.

Huzzah and hoo-rah!

Ya don't know what this is, do ya? Aztec gold.
I am a HUGE Pirates of the Caribbean fan, of both the ride
at Disneyland and the movies. So I HAD to have this (less
than totally expensive) replica of the Aztec gold coin from
Curse Of The Black Pearl. I actually have major POTC memorabilia,
or at least major memorabilia for a person of my income.

And I continue to collect.
