Something Different

I spent a nice quiet day yesterday just watching some old westerns on TV. I particularly enjoy sitting back and watch some of good old John Wayne's westerns. You know the ones, Rio Bravo, El Dorado, The War Wagon, Chisum, She Wore a Yellow Ribbon, Fort Apache.... there were sure a lot of them. Anyway, I can't think of a more pleasant day than to sit with my dog stretched across my lap watching the Duke fight bad guys and Indians.

Well, it was a very nice change from watching the pundits dissect the Republican Presidential wantabees or listening to doom and gloom predictions about the world economy. I read a lot of news letters, op eds, intelligence bulletins and newspaper articles. Too many. Sometimes I just get to the point that I think of I read just one more story about a murder or a rape, or a car bombing -or if I hear one more world leader give a speech about the climate or the economy or the United Nations or NATO -or anything else -I'll just go take 15 steps off a 10 step pier.

That's when I decide it's time to break out the DVD's and spend time with the Duke. You should try it sometime. It works (but turn off the computer and the cell phone first).

Here is a little taste of one of the more relaxing scene -The Duke, Dean Martin, Ricky Nelson and Walter Brennan -it just does not get better....

Live Long and Prosper....
