Legends of Western Cinema Week Finale!

     Well, it's here, folks. The conclusion of our second annual Legends of Western Cinema Week. This is the part where we say goodbye, and the cowboy rides off into the sunset towards a new adventure...

    *ahem* I'm getting a little too emotional about this. ;-D What I want to say is, this week has been SUCH a blast! Olivia and I have had so much fun hosting this event and sharing with y'all our deep and slightly obsessive (occasionally frightening, even) love of the western genre and the cowboy way. We loved every bit of it. And we're thrilled that so many of you decided to join us!

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!
