While out and about during my 2022 Birthday Extravaganza
I took a moment to enjoy dusk. Dusk has always been one of
my favorite times of the day/night. It could mark the end of a
great day and holds the possibility of a magical night.

I mean, that's what it has always felt like for me, more so when
I was younger and lived in the city. So many "adventures".

Another favorite time of day is dinner time, especially when
you are in the drive-thru at Tom's, waiting for a delicious
burger and fries. Magical, most of the time.

No Mr. Tom's, thank YOU!

I visited Dollar Tree (where everything is now $1.25) during this, my
2022 Birthday Extravaganza. I came across a cool little Iron Man bust.
$1.25? Oh yeah. Mine. Further on down the aisle I spotted a display dome.
My brain went into OVERDRIVE.

$1.25 Iron Man bust + $1.25 display dome = a collectible!

I glue gunned little Iron Man inside the dome and now you are
looking at a big ticket item. I am bettin' that I am up at
least 50 cents on this deal.

I put him into the bar cabinet with some other stuff and I am waiting for
somebody in the household to spot him. Could be a while.
I actually think he looks pretty cool.

He wants you to take him home.

As I have written before, it is my once a year Birthday Extravaganza
tradition to try and find a REALLY inexpensive Star Wars (hopefully)
related figure to add to the collection that I display behind my TV. This
year I found Grand Moff Tarkin. I found him at Comics-N-Stuff.

And here he is now with all of his "pals". You are looking at about
five or six years worth of (not completely Star Wars) tradition. I have
also written that the Millennium Falcon is my favorite piece, but
I dunno.... Mr. Tarkin may take that honor. Probably not... but maybe.

Oh, and Grand Moff Tarkin was made by Kenner.

I went out and bought my very own copy of
This includes the theatrical version and an extended
cut with an alternate ending. My curiosity is PEAKED.
I will watch SOON.

I'm betting a monkey painted this.

For my birthday I bought something that I did
not need, but something that I wanted. I bought
for myself this MSR Titan titanium kettle.

It is a great fit for my MSR Pocket Rocket. The
water boils so fast on this thing that you barely
have enough time to reach for a potholder before
it is done. Fantastic.

It all comes together to form a really simple and fun
way to make a hot drink on a cold day. Two minutes
to make and as long as you want to sit and take in the
day, or night.

I bought this hat at the thrift store. With a
coupon it was actually about $3.50.

I am going to try to make a simple tricorn
out of it.

Something like this only my stitching will
be nicer.... hopefully.

I will for shore post a photo of it when I
get it done, unless I do a completely
terrible job of it.

The 2022 Birthday Extravaganza continues!
