"T" is for...


I bought both of these at some gun show
or another,  a number of years ago.
I like the boot.

I've been getting into some Eddie Murphy lately as
there has been (or is it have been? I don't know...) some
of his movies in the $3.74 and $5.00 bins at Walmart.
"The Golden Child" was in the $3.74 bin and was
totally worth it. A lot of fun if you get the chance.

I will rate El Golden Child 7.2 out of 10 "Chosen Ones".

 Rain on the ground...

...rain on the hill...

...brings cute little frogs to the wall at night.

The frog was being very patient, but I still
could not get a very good picture of him.

The lucky coin I bought on January 2nd, 2017 during
my Birthday Week Extravaganza. It has been sitting
at the bottom of my purse only to be seen every few
months. Not too worse for wear. Most of that whatever-
it-is-called rubs off with a little elbow grease which
I do not have today.

 When "The Meg" starring Jason Statham (who I LOVE) was first
released to theaters I really wanted to see it. But after seeing some
trailers I became less excited for one reason or another. Later after
some discussion online, I was encouraged to to give it a chance.
That was some time ago. Today I found the DVD on sale for not
so much so I picked it up. I am anxious to watch it.

It is a pretty bare bones copy but at least they had a little fun with
the inside. I think that is kind of rare with a DVD like this.

Great home theater decorations at Hobby Lobby. I had
to put my blinders on and leave the store before
I bought another something that I have no room for.

 The battery in my much loved Samsung Galaxy S6 phone finally
got tired and went to sleep for the last time. I had to replace the
phone immediately of course. I went with the Galaxy S10+.
I am dang happy with it. It takes pretty good photographs too.

I love my phone as I am sure many of you do love your phone.

I taped this Post-It note to my computer desk about two and a half
years ago to remind me that I need to update my driver's license
to the new Real ID. I just kept putting it off after hearing that the
lines for getting it (appointment or not) were 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 hours
long. Well, I FINALLY made an appointment as my license expires
very soon and I was able to get an appointment for about three weeks
from the date of my request.

Long story short, I had all of my documents ready to go. I went in, had
my vision test, had my photo taken, I had my renewal upgraded to the
Real ID and from start to finish I was in the DMV for.............................
...................................................................................... 25 minutes.

I am thankful and I am now going to tear up the Post-It note.

The George Lawrence Company was established in 1857 in
Portland, Oregon. I believe they went out of business in the late
1980's. Fortunately I acquired a holster, gunbelt and the above
item before they did. Pictured here is a custom made spare
cylinder pouch. The spare cylinder being from a Ruger Single
Six .22 / .22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire pistol.

Most of the time I use this pouch to hold a ton of .22 ammunition
on my belt. It makes it really easy to just reach down for more ammo
when needed. I have had this pouch for about thirty-six years.

Fine Western leather, yum.
It just keeps getting better.

As is our custom, for my son's birthday we went to play
miniature golf. After the eighteen holes we played a few
games in the arcade. Last year my son came home
with a giraffe. This year...

...he brought a snake home.
Awwwww... Pretty pretty snake.

Another from our visit to the Zoppé Italian Family Circus in September.
This is Carmen Rosales and her husband Jorge Rosales. They
juggle in the circus with three of their five children.
They are a LOT of fun.

You can see Nino the Clown back there in the green pants.
He wants desperately to be a part of the act and they keep
shooing him away. They will not let him join in. It is funny
and sad at the same time. But it all works out in the end.
