 I watched "TROG" (1970) starring Joan Crawford. Ms. Crawford sold this
movie. If not for her, this movie would have been terrible. Ms. Crawford
herself considered this to be the worst picture she was ever in. But she
gave it her all and it pulled me in. This movie asked an interesting
question I think. TROG, a murdering "missing link" on one hand was
invaluable to science, but on the other hand was a nightmare to
a neighboring village whose inhabitants wanted him destroyed.

What to do. What to do.

TROG onscreen at Borden Cinema. Fun Fact: TROG's suit is a prop from
"Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey" (1968) re-purposed. I will
rate this movie 5 out of 10 Tranquilizer Pistols.

This was Joan Crawford's last movie.

I wanted to try make up something kind of funny
about this picture but I can't. It's really not funny
when complete pigs (that's right I said it!) litter our
land like this.

Oh c'mon you guys.... The last time you did
this nobody could find anything for two months.

Spotted this tied under the back of a car today.
It seems a little early to me, but hey, I am down
with starting Halloween pretty much
whenever you are ready.

And it is almost time for our Annual Halloween Crawl.
We at El Rancho ALWAYS look forward to that.

This happy cactus was in bloom today.
My mom took this picture.

I have had this lapel pin for probably thirty
years. I wear it on occasion. When I do, well,
let's just say that we live in interesting times.

I would never not wear it even
if times got... TOO interesting.

This has been my popcorn popper ever since my
beloved Whirley Pop popcorn popper went south on me.

I've been getting pretty good at popping popcorn
under different conditions and the corn I pop in
this pot is dang good. The process is not as easy
and not all the corn pops as it does with the
Whirley Pop, but the corn turns out well

This has also given me the opportunity to use the
Flavacol that I bought a few years ago. I don't use
it with the Whirley Pop because clean up is just too
complicated. Flavacol is a really fine salt type deal
and it can be a MESS. Some folks say that Flavacol
is the secret to having movie theater popcorn at home.
I don't see that, but okay. It is pretty good stuff.

 I want to replace my Whirley Pop
popper as soon as I can afford to.

I just typed the words "popcorn", "pop" and
"Whirley" a'WAY more than I ever wanted to.

City fellers.

I bought "Avengers: Infinity War" on Blu-ray today. This
is not my favorite of the Avengers movies. I am not sure
which one IS my favorite. But I think that this movie has
the best cliffhanger. I cannot WAIT for the next one.

I am giving this adventure 8.3 "Oh, We're
Using Our Made UP Names" out of 10.

And oh yeah, this movie was free as I used the
coupon that I received when I bought my smart
phone some two years ago. Celebrate!

I hate it when one (or more) of these
big fellers get into the house. More often
than not, for some reason, they always end
up flying into my face, no matter where I am.

This guy was on the wall outside.

I tried it again. On Saturday, July 15, 2017 I posted a photo
of a chocolate shake that I bought at Jack in the Box. A LARGE
chocolate shake that I bought at Jack in the Box. And it made
me sick for the rest of the day and night. Vowing to never buy
a LARGE chocolate shake again, I decided on this 100 plus
degree day to try another one, a small one.

I did and it was good. And I did not get sick.
I recommend these.

The End.
