Goodbye Adam West

This weekend Adam West passed on and with his passing he took the best part of television with him…The Caped Crusader!

It was West’s rendition of Batman that made me want to be Batman when I was a child.  Alas, I only got to be Batman on Halloween but it was a start to a life love of the 1966 version of Batman that I held all other incarnations too.

Who could forget Shark Repellent?

Or the Bat-tusi?

He was 100% West!  The best Batman ever has died 😦

The Queen Rocks it and I Love Squirrels

Okay first…we went from 58 degrees yesterday to in the teens (wind chill) today.  WTH winter…give it up already!

Secondly…Well done your Majesty!  Queen Elizabeth II gave her royal stamp of approval for gays and lesbians to marry in Scotland!  Brits should also be engaging in marital bliss soon as well!  It’s brilliant…Cheers!

Thirdly…I took some more pictures of my Squirrel Minions that live outside my house.

I just can’t help myself I love squir…Hey did you know that Batman is the coolest of the Super Heroes?

I Live In The Bat Universe

Batman has been my favorite super hero since I was a child.  Since I am still a child mentally he’s still my favorite and it’s cool because my love of all things Batty is supported by my wife.  She thinks it’s cute 😉  So when she brought home a special treat for the Bat Dog it made total sense and I was totally stoked.

Bat Dog meets Bat Bone...Let the games begin.

I really believe you can not have too many Bat accessories.

My brother even indulged my love of the Batman and gave me his own personal 1966 Life Magazine cover that he had framed of Adam West’s Batman!  I was all teary eyed when he gave it to me.  2 is awesome like that!  I have it hanging in my office.

I even own a bat signal (compliments of the Mrs.).  I’m obsessed and I like it!  I think that is why I subliminally got a Boston Terrier.  They kind of look like bats sometimes, lol.  Well I’m off to do some super secret Bat Stuff.

Creepy Is The New Cool

I hate spiders!!!   Ever since the Great Mormon Spider Attack of 2010 I’ve been even jumpier.  They terrify me and I have not idea why because I’m 1 million times taller.  In a strange twist I like spider webs.  They are like insect art.  I don’t mind watching spiders make webs but like our graffiti artists they need to move on when they are done.




This giant arachnid has been in this same area for about a week and a half.  For various reasons it’s had to rebuild.    A lot like Charlotte from Charlotte’s Web it has spun some beautiful art.

Tell me this picture of my neighbor’s cat doesn’t scream HALLOWEEN!

I watched one of my neighbors who saw the spider in its previous location…turn around and go in a different door, lol.  See I’m not the only one!

This little ditty has nothing to do with spiders but it was way cool…

Dad is that you????

Reliving My Childhood…Please Look Away

When I was little I wanted to be Batman.  I think I was 8 years old when I got my first Batman costume.  It had the Batman mask (that smelled funny on the inside from wearing it so much), the jumper with painted on utility belt was the bomb but what made the outfit was the cape.  Halloween was long over but I still wore my Batman costume to bed every night (my Mom was cool like that!).  I was BATMAN!

This isn't me...it's some random Batchild from the 70's. But this was the costume 🙂

I may have mentioned this once or one hundred times to Bean.  Because of this it has led to conversations like this one…

Me:  “She’s in my spot.”
Bean:  “She’s a tiny dog and your Batman…”
Me:  “That’s right!!!” (as I triumphantly reclaim my spot on the sofa)

And then it happened….

Bean gave me an early gift….

I Am Batman

I really am Batman!!!  Yeah for me.  Also I’m actually a 10-year-old trapped in an adult body.  To think…she married me anyway…double yeah for me!!!
