Looking down from Tarzan's Treehouse in Disneyland,
Anaheim, California, circa 2003 as taken by my son.

I spent some time outside today and cooked up
some chili. Hot weather, hot chili.

It was nice just relaxing and watching the birds
munching away (birds munch, right?) at our feeder.

Sticking with the theme of "stuff my son gave to me", here is
the inside of a rock my son gave to me. It is one of those kind that
is cut in half so you can see what is inside. This is what is inside.

My brother-in-law (actually my ex-brother-in-law but still a close
family member) was telling me about "Taken" recently and he made
it sound good. So when I found "Taken 1 & 2" on two DVD disks
for under $10, I grabbed it. Can't wait to see it.

Here is a random photo for the day. This is a GIANT
eraser that my son gave to me. To my credit you can
see that it remains unused. This is because I am perfcet.

Unfortunately by the time I was able to take a
picture of this rose it had started to wilt and brown.
But it sure was a beautiful pink rose.

I can tell that this photo of some steps (not the same
steps I've posted before) on our property is old because
that satellite dish is looooooooooooong gone. I'm pretty
sure I took this picture with my old Sony "Eight Hundred
Freakin' Dollar" Mavica camera.

This is an experiment. I wanted a comfortable
chair to sit on when I am outside just enjoying
the sights, or a movie on my iPod after darkness
falls, or just sitting out there cooking up some chili
or hot chocolate and listening to the crickets.

I bought this one. It was only $9.99 over at Walmart.
It is not the best one, but I will use it a while and if
I like the style, I may pick up a better one. So far,
this thing is nice. So with my chair, my lantern, the
night air, some coyote music (and my pistol because
you just never know), life can be pretty danged nice.

My son received another Loot Crate and June's
theme was "Cyber". There were a few great things
in there and one of them he gave to me. This is a
brain chip (keychain) from a T-1000 Terminator.

The new movie "Terminator Genisys" opens on
July 1st and I can't wait to see it.

Today is a random picture I took on
my way home from running errands.

Marion "Cobra" Cobretti is onscreen wielding his
Jatimatic Finnish 9mm submachine gun in an effort
to kill all the bad guys. Does he do it? Let's just say
that criminals are the disease... and "Cobra" is
the cure. This 80's GOLD also features a 22 year old
Brigitte Nielsen. "Cobra" is tons o' fun.

Hello Sorcerer Mickey Mouse (that I bought at the
Disney Store) who is in "The Sorcerer's Apprentice"
segment of the animated 1940 film "Fantasia".

Hello Timothy Q. Mouse (that I bought at the
Disney Store) who is Dumbo's best friend
and mentor from Walt Disney's 1941 feature
film "Dumbo".

A couple of years ago on a visit to Julian, California, I
bought this Sheriff's Office sign. I paid a tourist's price
for it, but I like it and I have it hanging over my bedroom

Apparently Pat Garrett hangs out in my bedroom. Or I sleep
in his office. One of the two. Pat is well known for dispatching
William H. Bonney.

I decided to watch "What Dreams May Come". HOLY COW.
This movie is one big excuse to make you cry once every ten
freakin' minutes. I just don't need that. I could take no more and
turned it off after forty minutes and called this movie night
a total loss. I just don't need to sit there and watch, well,
I won't spoil it just in case you ever want to watch it.

Love Robin Williams, hate huge cry fests. I need a
"3:10 to Yuma" injection or something.

That's a stiff horse tail.

Even on the most beautiful of days, you
have to be this tall to ride McDonald.

It's just like they say... If you're not there to
hear it, you really can't know. It's kind of creepy.

I bought the Moulin Rouge (2001) soundtrack. The first time
I ever saw this movie was at a friend's house back when this
movie came out and it was the first time I ever saw a dvd movie.
My friend had a big screen (for that time) TV and had the player
going through a pretty large stereo system. To me it was close
to being in a movie theater.

Anyway, Ewan McGregor as Christian. I fell in love. He is.......
........ dreamy. And so gosh darn.... dreamy. When he sings
"Come What May", my heart goes pitter patt. Don't know what
else to say other then I am real happy to have "Come What May"
on my iPod now.

You don't see these guys around much anymore.
I remember seeing them made up as lumberjacks,
cowboys, plumbers and even Santa Claus back
in the day. This guy sells mufflers I guess.

This is the face of my 14 inch Disney Store talking Captain
Jack Sparrow figure from the Dead Man's Chest installment
of Pirates of the Caribbean. I  have had this guy since 2007.
He is my best Capt. Jack Figure.

Just another random picture for today.

I went over to Fry's Electronics.

I bought a movie on DVD called "Head Case".
It cost $2 and it probably reeks. If it ends up being good
I will update this post. If it is terrible, I won't. And it is so sad:
They had about twenty copies of "Jason Goes to Hell: The Final
Friday" (1993) DVDs on the shelf and they were marked....
.25 cents each. Ouch. I'm a huge fan and I will admit the movie
is less than stellar... but .25 cents? Jeez.

Edit, two days later. Okay, I watched the movie. For $2 totally
worth it. It was not that great, but it was just macabre enough
to keep me watching. Sometimes you can't get enough of
watching a psychopath, am I right? They are too weird.
If you find it for what I paid or less, worth a watch, but
you will only watch it one time.

I've been for six months trying to figure out which
emergency charger I should get for my cellphone/iPod.
I have been researching like crazy and asking questions
and everybody has different opinions and it is very
frustrating so I finally just dove in. Time will tell if I
made the right choice or anything close to it.

It's a little too quiet.

...and speaking of gun cleaning kits, I'm doing a little
maintenance on a Vaquero .45 Long Colt pistol today.
Mostly just putting a little oil on it and running a little
(very little) oil through the chambers and bore to help
prevent rusting.

 Ahhhhhh. Nice and lubricated. Not always fun to do,
but necessary and a responsibility.

Ahoy me buckos!
I've added another Zippo to my collection.

I had this one on my Amazon Wishlist for months.
It would hover around the same price, a little up,
a little (very little) down, but never low low low.
I finally just said, "The heck with it" and ordered
the lighter. I did get free shipping and a much lower
price than is marked. It's Zippo. It's pirate. It's good.
