I took this picture at a store in Julian, California.
I'm still trying to figure out if this doll frightens me
or not. If the owners related spooky tales to me
about the doll having little adventures
in the dark of night, I'd probably believe them.

The sunset as viewed from our front porch on Thursday evening.

This is a picture I took in October 0f 2007. It was
the first morning of the first day of the brush fires in
San Diego that were to the left of us, the right of us, in back of us,
and in front of us. You can see the hot Santa Ana breeze
blowing and the sun peeking through the smoky skies.

When I took this picture there had already been a
run on bottled water, the gas station was out of gas,
the ATM was out of money, my pharmacy was closed,
and the whole town was as good as "out of order".

I'm tellin ya, things fall apart fast folks.

"Strike yer colors ya bloomin cockroachers!
By thunder, we'll see ya to Davy Jones!"

The "Wicked Wench" in the Pirates of the
Caribbean attraction at Disneyland, California.

Merry Christmas from
Lizzy Tex Borden (via Denny's).

Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree...

Or at least that's what it looks like my mom's figurines are singing.

I spotted this art on a street in North County, San Diego.
He's on the sidewalk, so if you wanted to you could
walk right up to him. He looks pretty okay with that.

Don't you just love the prize booth in game arcades?
For 2 tickets you can win a cool eraser in the shape of a football.
For 35,000 tickets you can win a SpongeBob nightlight.

I never go home without an eraser.
In the center of this photo is a lake on a golf course.
When there are brush fires you can sit here and watch
firefighting helicopters fly in and hover while they
load up on water, then head back to the fires.

Under different circumstances, it would be an awesome sight.

Holy Rose Parade, Batman!
It's Toyota of Pasadena!

As I glide along an automated walkway at the
Barona Casino and Resort, a television monitor advertises all of
the available amenities that I myself will never experience.

I've forgotten what it's like to have that look on my face.

I went to Blockbuster Video today because I had heard
that they were having a sale on Blu-ray movies. They are.
It's not all that good. 5 Blu-rays or DVDs ($14.99 or less)
for $24.99 or 3 for $14.99. Not that great and there are not
that many Blu-rays. If you go, pay attention. The movies are
all mixed together and you may think you are grabbing a Blu and
it's a standard DVD.

But hey, I got the Beetlejuice Blu-ray for $5.

I like these pigs that I bought at a crafts store.

I took this picture about an hour or so ago which
would make it about 1:30 AM. This is the skylight
over my computer table and the moon was just'a
shining on through tonight/this morning. My camera
can't capture how cool it really looks, especially when
clouds are kind of just whisping on by like in an old
scary movie.

I took this picture at a botanical garden and there's
just something about it.
 I don't know... Something around the Edulis.

This is the Air and Space Museum in San Diego California.
I've never been inside although I would really like to see it.
I am never with anybody who is interested, so I am always
outvoted. When I peek inside the door I can see what
I'm pretty sure is an Apollo space capsule.
It looks really interesting.

Maybe one day.

If you're going to deface something, deface
it with love is what I always say.

Evelyn is a fruitcake.

Mountaintop Motel Massacre. Yeeeeaaaah buddy.

If I drank, this is totally where I would buy my booze. This
liquor store is old school greatness. And I bet they have all kinds
of snacks. Like twenty brands of beef sticks, fifty flavors of beef jerky,
and even those little snacks of fishy fish strips in cellophane bags.
And popcorn? A given. And with any luck at all, perhaps even a
NACHO machine with the hottest of jalapenos.

And if they sell folding beach chairs, I would hang out all day.
I guess that's why I don't drink.

 Is that not a big spider on top of my Capt. Jack?

I was taking a picture of this balloon when... wait a sec...
Is that a dinosaur?

This is a tree in Ojai California (in Ventura) that
they decorate every year for Christmas. It usually has
huge ornaments on it. But this time it seems to have
only lights and a star at the top. Not a very good photo,
I know. I took it through my car's window.

This is FYE (For Your Entertainment). One of the last
CD and DVD stores around it seems. If you're lucky enough
to have an FYE near you, than you are blessed with many CDs
and DVDs both new and used to choose from. And if it's a location
 like this one, there are great associates to help you out. This
store also has action figures and sometimes the clearance prices
can be pretty doggoned good.

I like this. If it were greener and more (much more)
manicured, it would be attached to a building of
sorts in New Orleans Square at Disneyland.

As it is, it's really just on the back of a Carl's Jr.
fast food restaurant in Oceanside, California.
