Visited the jeweler to inquire about a receipt or invoice that breaks down individual ring values for insurance purposes. They'll type it up and mail it Monday. Southern Wake Co. household waste and recycling center on the border of Apex and Holly Springs to dispose of a leftover propane cartridge from the Westood Ave house cleanup. As I remarked to Miss, it can't possibly be a sound ecological trade-off to make people drive as far as we did just to keep a 1-liter propane tank out of the landfills? Back to Cary Citizens Recycling Center to drop off paper and cardboard. Corbett's for burgers, would do the spicy ghost pepper jack cheeseburger again. Whole Foods to pick up my Amazon Locker delivery and a frozen fajita kit. Picked up a can of Delirium Tremens, which bills itself "elected world's best beer", but I'd rather drink a Hennepin or La Fin Du Monde personally.

Concluded our "Dollars Trilogy" survey with "The Good, The Bad and the Ugly". Why is Clint Eastwood's "Blondie" character the "good"? And did no one in production realize it would be confusing and a bit unsatisfying for Lee Van Cleef to appear in "Good Bad Ugly" as a character completely unrelated to his Colonel Mortimer from "For a Few Dollars More"? But then, Van Cleef is only the most recognizable (to gringos) recycling of an actor in unrelated roles. The Wikipedia article for the Dollars Trilogy reveals 7 other actors who appear in at least 2 of the movies in unrelated roles. Eastwood is arguably an 8th if you refuse the standard interpretation that Joe/Manco/Blondie is simply one character going along with different nicknames imputed by other characters in each movie
