September 14, 2007 Bonus Blog
More South of The Border Hat stuff. Kathy got her Snapfish photos back and I went through and culled all the headgear shots from Chile, Equador, Nicaragua and Guatamala. Here they are:

And, as is usual, there is a photo in the batch where I said, "Uh, Honey, care to explain the circumstances behind this picture?"

Something about "synchronized swimming", a "fund raiser" and "horny studs." Frankly, I don't want to know anything more than that.

Top Ten Westerns Comment
"Like your choice of movies but would have to add Tom Horn with Steve McQueen to the list. I liked Richard Farnsworth in that story. He always seemed to be so natural, like his playing Bill Miner in The Grey Fox.

"Wrote down a Chief Dan George quote that I read in the "Nk' mip Cultural Center" in Osoyoos B.C. this past summer. 'If the old will remember, the young will listen.'

"Back to westerns for a parting shot, I hate to see three movie cowboys doing the work of one. This happened over and over in the series Rawhide and also in Lonesome Dove. If the hands did this in real life more than half would be fired! They had ten men for 3,000 head on the trail, how could you ever get three in the lens at one time?

"On Tuesday we fly to Boston, then Washington, then Virginia,then South Carolina. I call this my non-cowboy vacation. All things Eastern! What better way to appreciate the west than going east."
—Bill Dunn

Oh, that is rich. And worth repeating:

"What better way to appreciate the west than going east."
