Last December 30th I had written that I bought a new Zippo
Armor® Brushed Chrome Windproof Lighter as a practice run
for my 2022 Birthday Extravaganza (which again starts next
week). Well, I have been carrying this lighter now every day for
one year and I still REALLY like it. It is almost my favorite (my fav
being my Zippo Horseshoe Embossed lighter that I have semi-retired).

And this lighter has indeed turned out to be easier to grip and hold onto than
my last Zippo which was brushed chrome front, back, top and both sides.

Some folks have an issue with the need to refill a Zippo to keep it
operational. For more than a few years now it has not been a problem
for me. Once a week, on Wednesdays, after work, I refill my Zippo, my
lotion and my sanitizer. It just takes a few minutes and I am good to go.

With this schedule I have never run out of lotion or
sanitizer and my lighter has never gone dry.

And a zippo makes a good fidget item as well, if you
are into that sort of thing, which I sometimes am.

 Happy Anniversary ZIPPO!

"Halloween Ends" was released to 4K/Blu-ray/DVD today. I quite
naturally had to make sure to pick up my very own copy. Truth be
told, I am not in love with Halloween Ends. The whole Corey
Cunningham storyline did not excite me. I am not a Corey fan.

But I have not seen the movie since it was released to Peacock on
Friday October 14, so who knows, I  might change my mind.
Doubtful, but.... At any rate, I am pretty much a Halloween
completest so I had to have the movie in my collection no
matter how I feel about it.

Merry Christmas 2022 From Your Friends at
El Rancho De La Tex.

"Little Guys with BIG GUNS!"
We sure hope you all had a great Christmas. We did
over here at The Ranch to be certain. After a fantastic
home cooked meal with ham, baked potatoes, corn, peas,
carrots and dinner rolls, we settled in to watch "The
Terror of Tiny Town" on the 10 foot screen. Tiny Town is a
western starring all little folks.
Great fun.

I've never really mentioned this before, but here at The Ranch
we do observe Christmas with all of the decorations and the
fixins, but we rarely, if ever exchange gifts. It is just something
that we have not done for years and years. It is a long story.

But tonight my mom and my son surprised me with a gift.
I opened it up and it was "Renegade: The Complete Collection"
on DVD. Something that I had been wanting for a LONG time.
To their surprise and mine as well I became quite emotional.
Actually very emotional. You see, I love Lorenzo Lamas, Reno
Raines and Vince Black and he means a lot to me. I know, weird.
But that's just the way it is,

Thank you mom. Thank you my son.
I will cherish this gift for more than one reason.

What a great Christmas.

The beautiful Christmas tree at my beloved dentist's office.
Where yes I indeed did just have two days of kind of
emergency work done. To not have had the work done
would have left me in considerable pain throughout the
holidays and during my upcoming Birthday Extravaganza.


So I elected to go in and have it taken care of over the last
two days. Instant relief both physically and emotionally.

My dentist and his staff ROCK. My bill does not.

But hey, no more pain! HOO-RAH and HUZZAH!
