Whale fluke

"More To Come," as they used to say on Carson...

I haven't been in the mood to write in the blog.

Sometimes my not posting here is for that simple a reason.

Meanwhile, it's been a strange week, partly due to the holiday smack dab in the middle of it — and the loud night we had last night (and the not-as-loud-but-still-explodey night we had Tuesday night) — so I've been hunkered down. I walk, I read, I wait, I eat.

I also watched, on Tuesday night, the John Wayne True Grit, and enjoyed it and appreciated it. People I trust recommended I see that version of the story first, then watch the Coen Brothers adaptation, which I'll do at some point. Then, maybe I'll read the original novel. Meanwhile, I've increased my small list of John Wayne films I've seen to four. The others are Stagecoach, The Searchers, and Hondo.

I hope to have more worth blogging about soon.
