As I still try to organize this small apartment I came across a real chore.

I found I had over 350 vhs movies.. so I decided to get rid of some and “clean up my act”… so I did.  But I still have over 200 vhs movies!

You can’t see it but they are 3 rows deep…

….and 88 dvds… this is like trying to squeeze my fat ass into a size 8 !   It’s not working real well..

On a brighter note.. I think Dead Fred is looking so good ..

that I’ve decided to pull one of my old favorite photo’s of DeForest, as a cowboy, out of mothballs and hang it near Fred..

the picture is 16×20 and I have to buy a wooden frame for it.. but it’s been over 10 yrs since I’ve seen this picture and, like Dead Fred, I think it’s time to bring it out into the light again.

This picture was a “center of attraction” in my apartment in California..

Surrounding it are other pictures of movie cowboys, such as Harry Carey Jr (signed) Richard Widmark, John Wayne etc..   This apartment was also a one bedroom but for whatever reason it was much larger than what I am in now.

The picture was actually a picture of De and Audie Murphy riding quite fast in a movie called Gunfight at Comanche Creek.  I bought the photo  and then took my own photo of it by zooming in on just De.  When he saw the photo he loved it and asked for the negative to make prints which I gladly gave him.


(original pic ..it’s really black and white.. I had them printed in sepia)

On yet another note…  I talked with Chris (Stuff as Dreams are Made On) on Sunday.  We hit upon many subjects and yes once or twice the subject was books. (big surprise huh?!) We both chuckled at the sizes of our tbr piles and both of us blamed blogging and the great reviews everyone writes.   I finally finished Fablehaven so tomorrow should be a review post. It was good to talk to him and hear his voice.. he really needs to do a few more of the video blogs..those were/ are pretty neat!

Well I guess that’s all I can think of talking about right now.  I’ll take a picture when the De photo is up on the wall… until then ….
