This is a 1966 World Series souvenir keychain I bought
at Dodger Stadium when I was.................. young. This game
was the Dodgers vs. the Orioles. Who won? No idea. I was
not at this game. I guess they just had some of these left-over
and I bought one at the game I went to.

I have no clue how I still have some of this stuff.

 "You are a part of the Rebel Alliance and a traitor!"
Man, pardon my dust... Like I say, live in the mountains,
live with dust. Under THIS dust is a hard rubber like material
in the form of a Darth Vader helmet. This figure has a hole in
the bottom and when he was new he was stuffed with a Star
Wars T-shirt that was delivered via that hole. I bought him
without the T-shirt.... cheap.

I was doing my weekly's over at Walmart and when I got to my car
I noticed a white truck waiting for a parking spot while the poor
soul parked there was rushing around to get their stuff in the car
so the truck could move in.

That truck waited for over five minutes.....
while sitting in front of those open spaces.

The spot they were waiting for was a difference
of four, count 'em... four spaces.

During one of the visits we made to Texas I picked
up this guide to Amarillo happenings and places to
visit. This was about 100 years ago.

Inside is an ad for the Bonanza Sirloin Pit restaurant
featuring a photo of Little Joe, Pa Ben and Hoss
Cartwright. This really brings back memories. I did a
Google search of this address and much to my dismay,
I believe the property is now the home of a Taco Bell
fast food restaurant. Ack.

Check. it. out. Bobby Hughes and the Western Heartbeats
are entertaining over at the Avalon Ballroom. I really
wish I could hear these guys.

Here is another medallion I bought at the Family Christian
Store. I have been carrying this one in my wallet for a few
years along with the one in my last post.
This one is Saint Jude.

This medallion scares me a bit as sometimes, no, a lot of times
I make decisions that are less than desirable. And yes, I do try
to deal with the results. That can be a challenge as well.

I bought this Saint Christopher pendant at the Family
Christian Store a few years ago and it has been riding
in my wallet ever since. 

Saint Christopher is the patron Saint of Travelers
and his story is very cool.

A scale replica of Obi-Wan Kenobi's Lightsaber
from "Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith".

I have four of these replica lightsabers and truth be
told, if they were separated from their stands and
mixed up, I would not know which lightsaber belonged
to which Jedi.

And oh man, I need to dust the inside of my cabinet.
Living in these mountains means dust everywhere
all of the time.

My mom told me a long time ago that if I find a
penny on the ground (or any coin) that I should pick
it up and keep it because it is good luck. So that is
what I do and I keep them in a little leather pouch that
I bought at the Renaissance Faire in Agoura California
in the early 80's.

Have they brought me good luck? Better luck than
the the folks who lost the pennies I am thinkin'.

(For this Friday the 13th I have a picture of my
Mezco Cinema of Fear: 3.75-Inch Jason Voorhees.)

We used to go to June Lake and surrounding areas opening day
fishing and just whenever we could get up there in general. We would
go through Bishop all the time. Bishop is a fantastic little town with
so much history. This is a postcard from the Starlight Motel in
Bishop. This must be from about 1966 or 67.

They had TV sets too, back before cable. I know it seems
kind of plastic, and some folks cannot imagine that staying
in these little motels was as cool as it was, but just like drive-in
theaters of old, it was VERY fun.
The fishing was good too. Rainbow trout. OH yeah.

Happy Easter!
The Easter Bunny came around this year and left one
of his pals... Carrot Patch Pete. And let me tell you,
Pete was tasting mighty fine this year. MIGHTY fine.

This maze was on the back of Mr. Pete's box. I took a picture
of it just in case you might want to give it a try for yourself
(because I am into sharing like that). Of course, you can
kind of see where I did the maze already, and I got
it totally right, the first time. Not bragging.
