Some local wildlife.
That snake is street wise.

They will get way out of hand fast
if not taken care of. But I love cactus
taken care of or way out of hand.

Just a picture of the rear view

Gophers... they crawl in but they don't crawl out.

This "American and Proud" sticker has been around here
for a long time. I don't know how we came into possession
of it. It was originally given out by the Good Sam RV Club.

It's shiny.

 This is a postcard that I got from the Andersen's Split
Pea Soup restaurant in Buellton CA sometime in the
mid 1960's. We only went there a few times. To me
it was like going to Disneyland, and I loved the soup.
I remember crackers and cheese and
croutons, free samples.

I remember a wine cellar, I think that is what it was.
Going down the stairs to the cellar was like exploring
the caves on Tom Sawyer's Island at the Disney Park.


 ...It is probably not near as great as my memories,
but we had a lot of fun there. Loved Hap-Pee and
Pee-Wea too.

Again, I scanned this post card big so if you
would like to open it up in a new window...

P.S. Look at poor little Pea-Wee's cheek. He has
a band-aid on it. Apparently Hap-Pea is a little
careless with the mallet. Pea-Wee needs
some Cal/OSHA.

So am behind this car today... on an 85 plus degree day...
in brush fire country... and this ding dong has his cigarette
hanging out of the car's window.

Don't be a ding dong.

After I had seen "The Kid" in the theater I wrote that I would buy the
Blu-ray or DVD when it came down to $5.00. I lied. I saw it and I wanted
it, so I bought it. It's a Western. I have no defense other than that.

"Brawl in Cell Block 99" on the other hand... I heard really good things
about this movie AND about Vince Vaughn. But the movie was always
twelve dollars or more and I could not pull the trigger on it for that price.
Today it was in the $5.00 bin at Walmart. So tonight I will finally see it.

Huzzah and HIP HIP!

Years ago I had one of those cheap little key-chain
recorders, the kind that you might use to remember
where you parked, etc.... Ancient tech. Anyway, I had it
one day while I was down in our canyon shooting. This
audio is just a few rounds fired and then
holstering my pistol.

It was just a... a.... I don't know thing.
