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 damned 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.

CUSTOM-APOCALYPSE AND THE NWO!

I had 3 Rick Steiners I picked up 8 years ago.  So I decided to pick one and do a what if.  WHAT IF Rick Steiner joined the NWO?  So there he is.  Then I had Ray fix Apocalypse.
They both came out very well.  I am very happy.

PULGAS SCORE 6- 2 figs!

Wifey is not letting me collect because we have bills to pay...but she let me pick up two figures this past week.
He had a Primal Rage white monkey that I kinda wanted..but he wanted too much money for it.  BUT...with that said, glad I got these two.  I HATE the playmates TMNT figures from the eighties.  They are cartoony and not my taste. Hell I even hate the story.  Radiation on turtles is just a stupid concept. This newer series takes itself a little more seriously.  Shredder here looks cool.  And I LOVE the articulation.

JLU Green Arrow-  I debated to get this or not because I would rather have the Super Powers version but really...what are the frickin odds of getting an SP version in my lifetime.  So I bit the bullet and got this one.  Gotta have Ray make a quiver and bow and arrow someday.

Would love to find more JLU down here.  I am already mixing my SP Superman with them.

MONSTER MASK COLLECTION DEGRADATION!

I had heard horror stories of the rubber mask degrading over time...but had not witnessed it before firsthand...
Look at Dracula and Franky above!
The wolfman is almost destroyed totally.  I bought these masks in 2009 and hung them up in Monster Cafe all those years.  But now....

Who can I call?

RAY to the rescue!
 He quickly in one week stuffed them with paper mache and colored them to look right.  He added eyes to the eyeless Franky and Wolfy to the left.
 I mounted them above the display case.  Much better there!
Oh yeah.  Now the traffic that goes by can see them better.  Way to go Ray!
 Just a cool shot I took of the cafe signs.
 Our huge Wolfman sign.  So impressive!
Or original Frankenstein sign.  Wow.  8 and a half years and counting.

MONSTER CAFE NEW BARANDALAS!

What is a barandala?  Hell if I know.  But that is what my wifey calls them.
 They are hanging signs outside.  I love using these images.  From my favorite horror record from my youth.  The Dracula, Frankenstein, Wolfman record by Power Records.
Here is the other one on the corner.  I love love love them.
