PULGAS RUN 10! FUTURE SENTINELS!

So we took the week off last week.  Needed a HUGE break.  Traded some more of my overstock wrestling figures...
Got these in exchange!
1. 3 TITAN HEROES IRONMEN- Since I have a weird Sentinel obsession, I will have Ray do these one day.

2.  TOYBIZ KRAVEN THE HUNTER- Yeah!  My toybiz collection is slowly growing once again.  I sold them all off in a time of grief back in 2003.  I had them all too.

3.  MATTEL WWF ADAM ROSE- This guy was in the WWF for a cup of coffee.  So glad to get such a rare figure now as there will probably not be more of him made.

DREAMS- VAN LIFE!

Since I will be 46 this year....I have become quite tired of running the Monster Cafe.  Started thinking about what I want to do with my life.  So this post is basically a fantasy.  Hopefully one day this will come about...

Would love to buy a van that wifey and I could travel and sleep in to tour the U.S. Been youtubing Vanlife and there are people that live year round in the thing.
Just imagine...
 1. Visiting all of the national parks.  I understand you can stay up to 2 weeks in any federal park...wow.  Would love to do some real hiking.
 2. Going on a cattle drive like in the movie City Slickers!  How cool would that be to bring in a herd in a week.  Living as a cowboy!  I promise not to bring my electric coffee grinder!
3. Toy conventions-  Should be easy to plan out.  Just drive to the state the day before it opens etc.  I have watched many a youtube video about them and have been drooling.  After 6 years of doing my blog, I still want my childhood back.
4. Six flags and all other parks- That would be a blast.  To ride every single roller coaster and ride in the U.S.  Especially at Halloween time to see the parks all decked out.  Would be monsterously cool.
5. Animal Grabbers- Gotta get to Florida to do a collection of these babies.  I have always wanted one since seeing the shark one from E.T.  Elliot was playing with it and showing E.T. what it was.
6. Anytime Fitness-  It is open 24 hours a day and has 7k locations in the U.S.  Get your workout on and if you need a shower...bingo.  They have tanning booths too!  It would give me great ideas for my own gym I want to make down here.
7. Trampoline parks- for even more exercise!  We would be in shape all over the country.  I never knew such a thing could exist when I was a kid.  I would have loved the heck out of it.  NEVER had a trampoline in my life.  Only been on two as a matter of fact.  One at my evil brother´s and one at an exgirlfriends.
8. Wrestling conventions- Been wanting to visit some my whole life.  If I had had proper guidance counseling...someone to take an interest in me when I was younger...I would have loved for anyone to suggest for me being a professional wrestler.  My cousin Bonnie finally could see my passion for it and told me...BUT I was already 33 and I was too old for it.  Would love to see these legends that not many give a damn about anymore.
 9. AMC theaters- They have just instituted a $5 moratorium.  They have promised forever that their movie tickets will be just 5 bucks a movie!  Be great to get out of the van for a few hours and into some great AC!  I saw the last crappy Star Wars movies but that has been it.  Have not been to a movie besides those in 12 years living down here.  I seriously need to catch up and this would be a great way to do it.
10. Wax Museums-Be great to tour all of these.  Get pictures with the stars.
 11.- Visit where many of my favorite movies have been shot.  This one is Kramer vs. Kramer in the deli scene where Dustin Hoffman shatters the glass against the wall.  They even have a little framed pic still to this day where Streep and he sat.
12. Visit dinosaur museums- oh yeah baby! Anyone that has read this blog knows I am nuts for them.  Would love to see as many as possible.
13. Visit the different Rocky Horror casts- I was the creation. Rocky Horror, in many shows in Atlanta and New York.  But what about the rest of the country?  Gotta get my Rocky on!  Not performing mind you, just go to see it.  My wifey has never seen Rocky live.  She is a virgin as they say.  Gotta give her the experience.
 14. Visit the natural caves all over the U.S.- There are so many!  I should cosplay as Batman to video myself but I think the heat would be too much.
15. The waterparks-  Gotta visit them.  I am a sucker for em!  I only ever did White Water in Atlanta.

Just a sampling of what I wanna do.  I have done it all in my life, except this.  I studied acting in New York, did a Monster Cafe, and this seems like the next step.  I was such a homebody for all my life.  Never wanted to travel or do anything.

NEW YORK SELTZER IN SALTILLO!

So wifey and I went to Al Super just to take a gander at the new store....I turned the corner and low and behold...
NEW YORK SELTZER WATER!  I have not had this since at least 1985.  See my mother used to buy this all the time in Atlanta....I would drink it at her house...then suddenly Atlanta stopped carrying it.  I was SHOCKED to find this awesome product all the way down here in Saltillo.  I HOPE Al Super the grocery store, continues to carry it.
Just for those not familiar with it.  It had different flavors.  I picked out Vanilla and Black Cherry.  Downed them in one day of course.

MONSTER CAFE...O MUSEUM?

Well Wifey and I have finally had it up to here with the selfishness of people.  People pay good money to go into museums here in Saltillo.  BUT they want to come in our place for free, take as many photos as they want, dirty our floor with their shoes, contribute nothing and leave.  Well it stops here.  Lie to our faces saying they were here to eat, use the bathroom and leave without dropping a dime.  Ugh.
 We made a new sign to hang at the entrance.  No more unescorted excursions....Sorry, had to borrow a like from the 1979 movie the Black Hole.  Now we stop potential rubberneckers at the door.  There is a cover to come in now....but if they consume something....a coffee, a sandwich or anything else, then we waive the cover charge.  People want to treat my place like a museum?  Well now ya got it.

PULGAS RUN 9-DINOSAURS AND DRAGONS

Well, we finally went to the old flea market in what has been like, forever for me.
Traded four old Jakks BCA extras I had for these two beauties.
A 1979 Imperial dinosaur...I call it a padrosaur.  Because I am too lazy to remember the thousand of dinosaur names...And I got an AWESOME Safari Chimera!  This Chimera is a thousand times better than the one LJN did for the Dungeons and Dragons line.  So happy with my pickups.

Pulgas had a few things on my list that I could not trade for too. 
TMNT Ratman, a Mattel Fandango, a 2002 MOTU Cyclone among others.

Controversial Thursday-TRIGGERING THE TOYBOX...

The toybox blog had to write a snarky comment about my um, stealing the Universal Monsters stuff for my cafe.  So I will hold my breath to see what he does with this.  A company called Farmville down here which sells corn to eat is using Alfred E. Neuman to sell their corn.  Unlicensed of course.  That is just how it is down here.  We love it.  Toybox can eat a bag of dicks.  Still waiting on a blogpost by this person bashing applebee´s, Chili´s and other places that has memorabilia in their places.
