My picture for today is of a couple of my mom's roses.

California? Check.
Palm tree? Check.
Warm weather? Check.
Sunny blue skies? Check.
Motel that will impress your out of town visitors? Gimmie a minute.

When the world comes to it's apocalyptic end, I'm going to
grab a raft, a lantern, an mp3 player loaded to the gills with Enya
and sail the waterways of America. This urban stream will take me
to the California Aqueduct which will float me straight on
through to Heaven.

This was a view from our breakfast table on a
visit to the Barona Casino in Lakeside, California.
Very nice, and not completely developed yet.

Hmmm. It seems many of my photos are at restaurants.
But I swear, I do more than eat...
...for the most part.

What kind of restaurant has a Star Wars poster
in the restroom? An awesome restaurant.

Killer Pizza From Mars.

If you ever want excellent take-out Mexican food, and
you end up at a restaurant that looks like this,
you've found the right place.

I don't understand this. I've seen these contraptions a
few times. These things would seem to hold your CDs or DVDs
in a position to bake in the sun. Melt City.
Maybe I just don't understand the technology.

It wouldn't be the first time.

My son and I bought this dish with little birds
perched on it's edge for my mom as a Christmas gift a
few years back. I've always thought it is really cute.

One of my buddies, in my room.
I don't like being around live mice, but plastic is swell.

Witness the dramatic reenactment demonstrating how
a fox in the wild scratches behind his ear.

Nature is just awe inspiring.

This is the driveway of The Ritz Carlton in
Laguna Niguel, California. I took this picture
when my cousin was staying there a few years ago.

After two years of saving and procrastination, a few days
ago I finally bought an Apple 5th Generation iPod Touch and
have been spending stupid amounts of time loading it up with
everything from Merle Haggard to Pantera.

And I am still working on it.

I'm wonderin' if the owner of this gas station
invented the World Famous Pocket Fisherman...

This cave is near my home.
It's rumored that trolls live in it.
And not the good kind.

LOL... I'm just kidding.
They're the good kind.

Be still my heart. It's the Disneyland of liquor stores.
I could spend hours here smoking and
having a key or two made.

It's raining cats and dogs over here at the
Big Lots store today.

Here is the same parking lot on a sunnier day.
Big Lots used to be called Pic 'n Save. You can
get some good stuff for cheap prices, but for the
most part you get lousy stuff for cheap prices.

Here are a few odds and ends from my action figure
collection. Just a very small part of them. Not my
most valued, but there is a Hit Girl from the movie
Kick Ass and a Halloween Michael Myers re-release
figure that I'm quite fond of.

This fence on the patio at the Panda Express restaurant
looks deadly enough as it is, but I wonder what would happen
if the edges of all that iron foliage were to be sharpened.

Just a frivolous thought.

Here is my annual "Day After Halloween Fifty Percent Off Of
Everything" haul. That (wacky) pirate skull was the only one like him
in the store. He was there in late September when I was there and
I wanted him then, but I didn't want to spend what he cost.
But today, he was in the same spot, fifty percent off and now he calls
Casa Del Los Tex home sweet home.

This stuff doesn't look so great in the light of day, but when you
have them in low light and with spooky surroundings they are
pretty effective.

The hanging head and Jason's machete are from The Spirit Store
and the rest is from the Halloween Superstore.
