He liked to sit outside a room and look in. I am working on a sound or something to get him to enter for some cuddles. I want him to come to me when he wants some attention and not the other way around. This morning he was sleeping on the floor of my room and started talking like a preacher when I woke up. It was probably just for food be he was loving for a half hour before he insisted I get up.
It looks pretty good. I liked the kid in Civil War so I am glad there is a strong connection between Spidey and Stark. It makes sense in that universe Marvel is trying to build here. The shared Universe can stand a tweek or two.
This is the look at the Vulture. I like the high tech look that could really exist today but maybe I wanted a little less. I also hate that this figure will be a BUILD A FIGURE so you have to find the entire line of figures to get the complete figure. Good luck to find all the figures or the parts without going online and pay scalpers fees. GRRRRRRR.
It seems even Vladimir is having fun with me today. Those numbers are insane which means that once again the Russians are using my blog for one of their schemes or scams. Some Cold War hatreds run deep I guess. But they did like my post on Project Runway so those vodka swilling thugs do have some taste in programs.
One of my all time heroes. I knew about him due to my obsession with the Space Race as a kid. I had to see most of this in books but my Dad says I saw the landing on the Moon but I was only 4 at the time. But John Glen had the 'right stuff' and comes from a time when this kind of heroism was celebrated. He was the first American to orbit the Earth in his Friendship 7 craft. As you can see from the movie clip, his return to Earth wasn't a foregone conclusion. He had to abort his planned orbits and re-enter the earth because of a sensor light indicating that his heat shield may be loose or not work as intended during re-entry. He had to manually pilot the craft back to Earth. Fortunately he survived.
An authentic hero and genuine American icon, Glenn died this afternoon surrounded by family at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center in Columbus after a remarkably healthy life spent almost from the cradle with Annie, his beloved wife of 73 years, who survives.
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
