Back in 1967 I went with my mom, her girlfriend and her girlfriend's daughter
to Haight-Ashbury in San Francisco. They wanted to see what that "Summer
of Love" thing was all about. While there we went to the Cost Plus store and
I bought this incense burner.  

Closed incense burner.

Open incense burner.

That is Dirty Harry's Mod. 29 Smith & Wesson .44 Magnum
in the foreground and what I always think about when I see my
incense burner is that this scene from Magnum Force starring Clint
Eastwood as Harry Callahan was filmed at Cost Plus in 1973. (That
might just be my record for longest sentence ever.) Harry is about
to dispatch a few bad guys from in back of a two-way mirror.
