Western Week Finale

   Our Western Week has come to a close, my friends! I've had fun with this-- I hope you have too! :-) I was able to review Hidalgo, Broken Trail, Silverado, and Lonesome Dove. Our level of participation was not exactly through the roof, but it's not matter-- I'm so glad some of you joined in! Here are the week's participants:

~ Heidi P at Along the Brandywine reviewed She Wore a Yellow Ribbon
~ Hamlette at Hamlette's Soliloquy wrote My Ten Favorite John Wayne Westerns

  Thank you ladies! And thank you everyone who participated in your own way! :-)


  1. It's a shame not that many people entered... but it's been fun anywhoz. It's passed very quickly!

  2. Emma Jane --
    I actually just left a reply to your nice comment over on my blog :-)...but wanted to mention that I thoroughly enjoyed it and definitely found some new titles (and soundtrack ideas!) to look into. Some great writing inspiration... ;-) So thank you again!

  3. I think you should make this an annual event. Because I, for one, found it to be fantastic fun :-)

    Also, got a little note in the mail today -- you're most welcome! When I saw in your Lonesome Dove review that you like Diane Lane especially much in that, I was like, "Okay, she HAS to see The Virginian." DL is awesome in it!

  4. Hamlette: Glad you enjoyed the week!

    Oh, and you got the note. ;-P We started watching The Virginian the other night, but it was all fuzzy (I think it might be our VCR). However, my interest is sparked now, so I'm definitely going to look for it at the library!
    I've seen The Man From Snowy River once and liked it. :-) We've seen parts of Master and Commander (it was in a hotel room in Virginia-- it was early morning and Sadie and I were awake in our room but we didn't want to make too much noise, so we had the volume turned down super low and therefore didn't have a clue what was going on since we couldn't hear the people talking-- long story, that.) My parents watched it once, but we've never watched it all together so that will be nice. And The Rare Breed looks charming. So thanks again! :-)


  5. Well, The Virginian is a second-hand video I bought from a video store, IIRC, and also at least 12 years old, so... might just be the tape. I know some of my really old VHS tapes still work fine, but then the kind of medium-age ones like that are starting to deteriorate. Hurrah for DVDs!

    The Rare Breed is charming. One of my top 10 westerns. But then, Maureen O'Hara is my favorite actress :-)


I'd love it if you'd drop me a line or two! I always enjoy receiving comments from readers and friends. I ask that you please keep your comments clean and God-honoring, and please don't write anything you wouldn't want your grandmother to read. Also, if you are commenting under anonymous, please do leave your name (or some sort of moniker so that you aren't totally nameless). Thank you so much and have a lovely day!
