SNOW IN SALTILLO!

We have not had snow in years.  At least in the city.  Beautiful but what a frickin nuisance!
The terraza was covered with the crap.
And because of the huge church it did not melt for days.  The church casts a huge shadow which prevents sunlight from getting in.  AND it has the added bonus of leaking through my roof and getting my bed wet with around 40 gallons of water.  Isn´t that great?  AND no one goes to Monster Cafe to eat when it is frickin snowing and raining...So I have another added bonus of having NO money to fix this disaster.  AND it is going to rain for 5 straight days. 
So we went to Arteaga again.
Saw this unique carving in a tree.
Snow can be enjoyable when one doesn´t have to work.
So flippin cold outside!  Gots to huddle together!
A small creek I am standing next to.



Afterwards a meal in San Antonio de las anas!

A small cliff that has been coverted into some kind of Mary worship place.

PULGAS RUN 8! LITTLE PEOPLE! MU!

So I brought more to trade with the flea market.  More of those frickin wrestling figures I bought too many of thinking people would buy them from me.  Nope.  They are sitting on the monster cafe shelves just rotting for the past 9 fricking years. Oh well.  Time to put them to some good use.

Got 3 Marvel Universe 3.75 inch figures.  Guardian, The Leader, and Titanium man!  Awesome gets!  This makes my second and last Guardian.  They were the policeman for the Vault to haul away the superpowered criminals!

The Rock R3- I could never find a good rock figure.  Well that search is over now.  He may be my world champion someday.

Fisher price little people- YES!  Stoked!  I normally hate baby toys as you know.  But these are from my childhood so they get a pass.  She had so many.  Saw three dogs.  But I weedled it down to just these 6.  I hope I can find one of the playsets down here oneday.

So this was an excellent run at the pulgas.  Too happy.

PULGAS SCORE 7-a whole boatload

Well...money has been tight.  We had a few things to fix in the cafe etc.  But don´t worry we are enjoying ourselves.

But I thought how can I get my obsession with action figures taken care of.

Then it hit me.  In 2009 I spent a thousand bucks on Jakks wrestling figures.  Seperated what I wanted and was trying all these years to sell the rest in the cafe to NO luck.  I think I have sold 40 total...Not many like wrestling in Saltillo I suppose.  When Mattel came out with their versions, well it made me hate Jakks.  I hate the huge thunder thighs on them etc.  I hope Mattel does every single Jakks figure ever done so I can be free of the collection.  So...I brought a few with me to the flea market...and am so thankful that the people there decided to trade with me.

Got alot of things that were on my list!
1. Toybiz Banshee- he is missing his plastic wings...Gotta have Ray fix that pronto.
2. Hasbro Rhino- Needed a Rhino figure.  The Disney pvc is my favorite version of him though.
3.Imaginext mechsuit- Awesome!  I will have it battle my Super Powers Superman figure.
4.BTAS-Two Face- This is the Twoface figure I wanted.  The best one.
5.Last Action hero Ax guy- oh yeah.  A serial killer for my Batman to capture.  Gotta have Ray make his Ax though.
6. Mattel basic Tyson Kidd- I wish his tag partner DH Smith was there but oh well.  Glad to have him.
7. Mattel basic Zack Ryder- Maybe I will tag Kidd and Ryder together?
8. Mattel elite dolph ziggler- The almost showstopper.  Elites are so much better than basics.

So all in all I love it.  Got to trade some extra crappy Titan Tron Live figures and got stuff I actually wanted.

MORE RAY FIXINS! CABLE, BISHOP, FREAK

So Ray made these custom weapons.  The Freak and Bishop are awesome.  It is my fault for giving him a picture of Cable with the gun in that hand and Ray not being familiar with the character nor the toy, sculpted the massive gun in Cable´s karate hand.  Ooops.

Oh well.  I like what he did here.  Happy as a clam.  Now gotta fix Green Arrow, and a few others.

I have not posted in a month.  Money has been tight but more figures are coming.

Controversial Thursday- Bad boys whatcha gonna do?

I don't get it.  WHY?  We got visited last year with 25 cops and they closed us down for not paying a license on time.  We paid this year's...Yet what happens?  Instead of CHECKING their records to see if we paid they have to send cops in again to check our paperwork!  Any idea of how Messed up is Mexico?  Anyone?  That they don't know who has paid their license and who has not?
 Really?  I mean really?
 There were more cops behind me as I took this shot.  Around 10 in all this time.  At least it was cut in half from the year before.  Last year was 25 or so.
 They stopped traffic to do this.  Ridiculous!
Police state anyone?  If they HAVE our papers down at the county office that says we paid our license this year WHY in the hell do they do this?  To scare the bar owners?  Our taxes pay their catblastit salary!  All it does is scare customers and us.  Period.

MORE ADVENTURES WITH BARNYARD ANIMALS!

What have I been doing lately?  Trying to stay afloat!  I have not been able to go to the flea market etc. because I have massive bills to pay.  Priorities!
 But we did get to go on a trip out yonder and got this blondie horse pic.
 And this VERY shy donkey.  She kept walking away from me if I came near her.
 This is common out yonder.  Some type of water thingie.  It is not a pool but for the animals.
 This little cow was tied on the side of the road.  I mooooed at her but I got nothing but a hardy look.
 When people think of Mexico in the U.S. they do not think of shots like these.  Beautiful huh?
 That ain´t no bull!
 I was very happy to get to hang outside some.  It is nice once in awhile to get away from Monster Cafe and enjoy God´s scenery.
Even got a pic of this here jackrabbit.  He is right in the middle thinking he hid from us.

I hope my situation changes soon and I can get back to figure collecting and playset making.

WHY AM I FASCINATED BY ANIMALS OF A BARNYARD NATURE?

 The horse almost came inside the window.  I think I love them because I was raised in the city all my life.  Not even a dog or a cat I had!
Little goats.  The kid that was tending all of these was too shy to be on camera.  I LOVE the Mexican people!  So humble etc.

I want to someday purchase a farm out here and raise animals of my own.  It would be paradise.
