I found this at a thrift store.
It was only a few dollars so...

...I could not leave it behind. It is something that
I can toss if I decide it is just taking up space.

That is a Mexican double loop holster... my favorite kind.
Whoever made this thing kind of knew what they were doing.
At the very least they copied it from a photograph.

I went shopping for some new clothes and although the
price was right, I just couldn't quite pull the trigger.

Atmosphere: 8...
Price: 6...
Service: 10...
Ice Tea: 10...
Seasoned Fries: 10...
Cheeseburger: Ug...
 I was feeling slightly adventurous, but I will stick with the
delicious Grand Slam Breakfast from now on.

I do love Denny's.

Got it!
~ Apocalypse Now: Final Cut ~

Tuesday, August 20, 2019

Today I found "Leprechaun Returns" and "The Final Wish"
on DVD for five dollars each over at Walmart. Final Wish looks
like a jump scare fest and kind of fun, and I have heard that
Leprechaun is good and stays true to the first movie.

It was just a matter of time until I bought Leprechaun Returns
as I needed it to complete my collection. It is on DVD as are
the rest of my Leprechaun movies.

What I am REALLY excited about and have waited MONTHS for
is the new "Apocalypse Now: Final Cut" on 4K and Blu-ray. This is
supposed to be Francis Ford Coppola's final and ideal version of
this movie. I pre-ordered this movie from the Best Buy store and it
should arrive to The Ranch on the day of the release;
Tuesday, August 27th.

I don't have a 4K player or television but I will put the
Blu-ray and digital copy to good use. 

Apocalypse Now is my all time all time all time
favorite movie and so that I would buy it is a given.

I was watching the old "Father Knows Best" show
 the other day. This episode was from 1956. This is
Bud Anderson taking a little walk down the street.

Oh look! It's Kathy Anderson aka
Kitten not far behind.

A little later Bud is taking his jalopy for a dangerous ride.
What do these pictures have in common? Well.... In the
background of all of them is one of my all time favorite
houses... EVER...

Roger Murtaugh's home from the "Lethal Weapon" movie
series. This house is on Blondie Street at the Warner
Brothers Ranch lot in Burbank California.
(Trivia: That house seen just above the white van is
the home of Darren and Samantha Stevens
from the "Bewitched" television show.)

Who'd a'thunk that thirty-one years after Bud Anderson
went cruising by that Martin Riggs and Roger would be
walking into this house as Roger says, "Riggs, if you
think I'm gonna eat the world's lousiest Christmas turkey
by myself, you're crazy."

This house is on my Holy Grail Visit List although I most
likely never will. If you have ever driven by the Disney
Channel Building on the 134 Freeway in Burbank,
you can see where Roger's house is in relation to that.
Just a couple blocks over.

"I'm too old for this sh_t."

Today is Avengers Day here at El Rancho De La Tex.
I went to town and bought my Blu-ray copy of 
"Avengers: Endgame".

Borden Cinema!

I have a couple of these big tin stars. I keep meaning to
hang them up outside so they will get old and rusty.

I figure that I will do that someday.

How to clean the restrooms at Tastee-Freez, Wienerschnitzel
and Hamburger Stand (whatever that is).

A while back I had written about and shared a photo of a small
show that I went to see in 2010; Debbie Reynolds in her one
woman show. It was really really good. I had also written
that after the show I was able to meet her and she signed
the program I had purchased. This is the page that she signed.

When you are in the presence of a person like Debbie
Reynolds. you know what true talent and professionalism
looks and feels like.
