The challenge was to post a photo of two
really cool things together. Ta-daaaaaa!!!

I had seen a review about "Big Kill" a few months ago
and thought that I would like to see it. I forgot about it
until I spotted the DVD at Walmart. I must have wanted it
as I grabbed it and threw it in my cart the second I saw it.

I should get my $9.99 worth out of it as it is 127 minutes long.
It will either be 127 minutes of "Hey, this is okay" or 127
minutes of "Oh man, just END already".
 (That was a bucket load of "I"s and "it"s... Weren't it?) 

THIS is what put the hook into me.
I need to know about this guy.

Foggy morning at the ranch.

I did this on my phone. It was an accident.
I could not do it again if I wanted to.

 I have shown this before. This is a little "general store"
and "assay office" on "Trails West", the outdoor display
at the Gene Autry Museum of Western Heritage in
Griffith Park, California. This is from my 2012 visit.

What I don't think that I HAVE shown is a picture I
took of what is inside of it. I am pretty sure that
this is just an educational display for students that
visit the museum on field trips. There is not even 
anything in there that I would want to have and I
can't say that about ANY other part of the museum.

As I have also written before, Trails West was taken
out a few years ago and replaced with an "ethnobotanical
garden". I could NEVER communicate to you just how
excited I was to learn that the outdoor display depicting our
American West was being replaced by an
"ethnobotanical garden".

Just look at that cowboy sitting in the serene ethnobotanical garden 
enjoying his book about vintage wines or cheeses or something.
What an invaluable experience.

A *ahem*... badass eagle at my dentist's office.
Not the best quality picture I have ever taken.

Easter is coming up and every year I look forward
to buying one of those egg cartons with a piece of
chocolate of some kind where each egg would be.
They are only a dollar and... they are fun.

This year they don't have them over at Walmart.
Instead, they have Easter "eggs" filled with confetti.
Weird. I mentioned this to my son and he asked if I would
buy one for him just to check it out. Here it is.

Haven't thrown any of these babies around.
"Cleanup on Aisle Four!" Yeah, forget that.
I would rather have the chocolate.

This guy sits atop a
Terminator Salvation video game.

I watched "Assassin's Creed" tonight. If there is one
thing that I will find memorable about this movie,
it will be that the credits are fifteen minutes long.


I think after ten minutes of credits rolling by the
orchestra performing the exit music just started jamming.

Here is a souvenir I bought from the Emporium on
Main Street in Disneyland, Anaheim California.
The year was... the year was.... a long time ago.
 I can't EVEN remember. This here is a telescope
featuring all the lands and attractions at the park.

Tradition says that about thirty minutes before
the park closes it is mandatory to visit Main Street
(most likely the Emporium) to purchase a little
something to remember our visit. I love this tradition.

 And it didn't used cost an arm and a leg to do so.
When I look at my telescope I can remember this
visit to Disneyland (I don't) and I can see a'way
far away too! Again, life.... so  good.
