We Don’t Need No Stinking Badges

Yes we do. We need badges for completing the November daily blogging challenge NaBloPoMo and Nano Poblano.  It gives one a sense of accomplishment and relief as well to be finishing. It was quite an experience. It seems like it was so long ago that we started. I do appreciate my badges.

But thinking of badges got me thinking of the title of another classic film. The Treasure of the Sierra Madre starring Humphrey Bogart and Walter Huston. It was directed by John Huston. There is a famous line in the film uttered by the leader of a gang of banditos when he was asked to show identification to verify his claim of being a Federales. Here is the film clip via John Benedetti on You Tube:


The film was adapted from the book of the same name by B. Traven.

It is a classic story of the search for gold and the how greed affects people.

Well some more good news. It is raining in Southern California! It will not make up for the long drought but it is a start.
