It was a nice night for a fire, even if the fire was
just a burning Duraflame log. That was all that
was needed for tonight.

Everybody I work with loves these things. I like heat
but I am generally not into the lime thing. It hurts my
senses. But at Walmart I finally impulse
bought this bag to try.

We will see if the lime sour makes my mouth contort.

A nice Christmas gift and
year round thought.

I bought "Rambo: Last Blood" on Blu-ray. As I wrote when
I went to see it (I HAD to) in the theater in October, I liked it,
I didn't love it. But I knew I would buy it when it came out as I
want to complete my "Rambo" collection. "Rambo 4" (2008)
 has been my favorite so far...

The back of the Blu-ray.

Will this be the last of John Rambo?
I hope not.

That's right. "Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker" will be released
to theaters on December 20th and shortly thereafter I will be seeing
it during my Annual Birthday Extravaganza. Tonight I will be watching
"The Last Jedi" in preparation for the event. Life is good.

Happy Friday the 13th,
December 2019!

And of course my movie choice for tonight is
1993's "Jason Goes to Hell: The Final Friday".
Pictured above on the Borden Cinema screen
is Jason Voorhees doing his very best to dispatch
one Steven Freeman. Will he do it?
No spoilers here.

Fun thing to watch out for: Creighton Duke's
method of payment for the information Steven needs.

A friend was telling me about a candy called "Kinder Sorpresa".
I was curious about them so she brought me one.
The candy starts out looking like what you see above.

Inside the wrapper is a delicious looking chocolate.
I am all over that.

But wait! That chocolate is actually not through and
through, not solid. It is just a shell concealing a strange
looking capsule. What the hay?

Pop that capsule open and peek inside. There is a puzzle toy
in there. Take all the parts out, follow the instructions and...

...Ta-daaaaa!!!! THIS guy is in there.
That is dang cool.

!!! BUT BEWARE !!!
Why is Kinder Sorpresa banned in the United States?
"The Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act prohibits confectionery
products which contain a “non-nutritive object”, unless the non-nutritive
object has functional value. Kinder Sorpresa eggs are legal in Canada
and Mexico, but are illegal to import into the US."

Oh man. I guess we had better keep today's entry on the down low.
And thank you to my friend for thinking of me.
I never take that for granted.

It is also the time of year for toy trains that
travel in circles around Christmas trees.

Guess what?! Pictured above is yet another "Father Knows Best"
episode that has Roger Murtaugh's house from the "Lethal Weapon"
movie series in the background.The episode was titled
"Betty Goes to College" and first aired in 1956. You are looking
at Robert Young as James Anderson and Billy Gray
as the young Bud Anderson.

I believe that this location was also Gidget's (Sally Field, "Gidget" 1965-1966) 
home as well as the Baxter home from the "Hazel" (1961-1966) television show
starring Shirley Booth. But as I wrote before, it will always
be Lethal Weapon for me.

It's time for cute Christmas ornaments.
This is a new one to me.

I found a few leftover Black Friday deals at Walmart.
These are all movies I have been planning to buy when
the time was right. The time was right, or at least semi-
right. No extraordinary prices, but okay.
They are all DVDs.

"Annabelle Comes Home" was the most expensive
at $7.96. I expect it will be in the $5.00 bin within
a few months, but I want to see it NOW, dang-it all.

"The Nun" was $5.00 and that is most likely priced right.

"Glass" was $5.96. We will see how that pans out.

Of course, if I LOVE any of these movies a Blu-ray
upgrade will most likely be in the future.
