America's Birthday is coming up next week and we bought a shiny
new barbeque from Walmart to help us celebrate the day. We did
not want anything expensive and this "Expert Grill"...



....fit the bill at $19.97. It is 17.4 inches which is great for
what we need. Just some burgers and dogs and BAM!
We are good! It is going to be a beautiful day.


This is the box that the barbeque came in.

Folks have asked and yes, Borden Cinema does
indeed have it's own dedicated popcorn salt shaker.

A new Zippo lighter to celebrate the day. 2nd Amendment.
I bought it over at Walmart. It was a little pricy at $16.98,
but I went for it. This will be added to my little collection
of Zippos and remain unopened.

Huzzah!

This is an 8x10 sheet with photos of some actors who at
one time or another played cowboys in Western movies, some
more than others. I'm not sure where and when I acquired
this sheet, but one thing is for sure, I am not the original
owner.

Top row left to right:
1. George Houston, 1896 - 1944
2. Robert Livingston, 1904 - 1988
3. Ray Corrigan, 1902 - 1976

Bottom row left to right:
1. Don "Red" Barry, 1912 - 1980
2. Bob Nolan, 1908 - 1980
3. Buster Crabbe, 1908 - 1983

It is Knife Day again here at El Rancho De La Tex!
Today's knife is one that I bought because, well, it's a SCREAM,
baby (if'n ya know what I mean). It is the Buck Model 119. As far as I know
there are two models, the 119 and the 119 Special. I think the Special has
a longer blade. That's really all I think I know about this knife and I could
be totally full of it. The 119 has been produced since 1942.

My 119 came with a cordura sheath which
I don't love, for this knife anyway. I would have rather had leather.
There is a plastic sleeve in the sheath and the knife rattles around
inside of it, making a lot of noise.

Anyway, this knife is really common and there are those who love
them, and those who hate them (the synthetic resin handle material).
I am just happy to own one.

I made this.
It is a Deep Space Probe Ship. Call sign B52.

And no, it is not for sale.

Just a random photo I took at the Gene Autry Museum of 
Western Heritage, Griffith Park CA in 2012. A barrel out
on Trails West. Trails West is no longer there, which in
turn makes this barrel no longer there. You know how
I feel about that.

The oranges are looking a little thin on this tree.
They will come back.
