I finally found a plucky little droid in a size that is bigger
than teeny. Hasbro's R2D2 figure from "The Force Awakens".
This figure fits right in with 12 inch figures. I found him
at Big Lots for ten dollars. Go figure.

Maybe one day I will stumble upon C3PO as well.
The issue with most 3POs is that they are not a
shiny reflective gold, but a dull gold.
Not good. Not good at all.

One of the galleries in the Gene Autry Museum in Griffith
Park, CA. These are all authentic artifacts. From my 2014 visit.

I went over to Big Lots and found a couple of movies
to buy. Moneyball on DVD, and Terminator 3 on Blu-ray
and DVD for only $2.88, a Black Friday leftover.

Earlier I had pizza and you know I have to put a picture of
it here because I love to look at pizza, almost as much as
I love to eat it. But I'm thinkin you know that.

I have not been to an El Pollo Loco restaurant in years. Fifteen years
maybe? And I have only been there twice counting today. It was
a nice change of pace. It is quite festive in there.

I had a 2 piece meal: breast and wing (pretty darn good), two flour tortillas
(pretty good), rice (good), corn (REALLY good) and their hot sauce
which is hot and great and you can have as much as you wish. Overall
I would rate my meal today about 6.5 out of 10 Crazy Chickens.
I will go there again someday.

A present my mom bought for one of those
"Toys For Tots" type programs. I would WANT this.

It is expensive, but I finally broke down and bought "Alison
Krauss & Union Station Live". This is a two disc set and it is
pretty fantastic. It has to be for me to buy a "live" album. I don't
like live CDs. A real highlight of this CD set is "Baby, Now That I've
Found You". I am sure that this song is a favorite of many folks.

This CD was recorded over two nights and I sure would have
liked to have been at those performances.

There was another brush fire around here. I had to zoom
in with my camera so the photo is not so great.

Firefighting helicopters flying by us... get over there. They had so many planes and helicopters
on this fire it was amazing. Thank you SO much to our firefighters
for being on top of all these fires and saving us and our homes.
You cannot even imagine what these folks do. They are fantastic.

I bought this pin from Virginia's Gift Shop at Knott's
Berry Farm in Buena Park, California. Must of been
about 25 years ago. The gift shop was named after
Virginia Knott, the eldest of the four daughters of
Walter and Cordelia Knott, the founders of  Knott's
Berry Farm. Virginia was also the proprietor
of the gift shop from 1939 until 1997. Holy cow.

Virginia passed away in June of 2003 at 90 years old.

~ I Voted - November 8th, 2016 ~

And to celebrate Election Day and all that that entails,
I bought a new Buck knife. This is the Buck Trio 373.

I love Buck knives. The only thing that bothers me about
this particular knife is: Made in China. Every time I see
"China" on the blade I cringe a bit. But this is a great sharp-
out-of-the-box knife and I like it. Three blades: clip, spey
and sheepsfoot. Centered nicely and no play. With tax and
a (reusable) bag I had to buy over at Walmart now, this knife
ran me $16.01. Nothing much else to say.

Redundant, but I LIKE seeing this on my knife. I have a
few Buck knives that I have had for some thirty-five
years and they are soon to be heirlooms.

I will just present the picture and remain silent.

Sometime back I had posted a photo of this machete type deal that
I have. I needed to safely store it but I never had a sheath for it. I have
a friend, Duane, who has a YouTube channel. In one of his videos he
displayed a sheath that he had made out of cardboard and duct tape
for one of his knives. I decided to try it.

Now I can store this thing without fear of cutting myself
when retrieving it. I am posting this photo of the sheath
to show to Duane. Duane has all KINDS of great ideas.
He is The Master.
Thanks Duane!

I bought "Star Trek Beyond". I have the first two movies
and they are a lot of fun. I watched this one and it too is
a lot of fun. I think the first movie is first best, the second
movies is second best, and this one is third best. Totally
worth a watch. I like the humor in these movies a lot.

And on Blu-ray they look great.

Here is another picture of the Universal Studios Los Angeles
stunt show, 1987. The comedy relief is in the pit. I always love
the cowboy stunt shows. I like them more when the comedy is
downplayed, but I suppose the comedy is for the kids and
folks who are not into Westerns for Westerns sake.
