Well here it is, another year almost past with Christmas only hours away. I went over to www.Bloggingpoet.com and found the link to the Christmas Story quiz. I watch this movie over and over and can even quote some of the lines but I missed several of the questions. Guess that means I'll just have to watch it several more times this year to get a passing grade.
Been doing more reading than blogging the last few months. Plenty of current political reading as well as history. Not everything has been about politics however; plenty of reading of Louis L'Amour with the latest being "The Strong Shall Live" which is a collection of several short stories. In many of his books he talks about a town he was building in Colorado called Shalako. This is to be a re-creation of an operational 1865 Western town historically correct right down to the well. The idea was for it to also be a movie location and tourist attraction. I got all excited upon learning of this town and went to research it on the web. Going to www.louislamour.com was a let down as the town never got built and the land was sold off. Such a pity that it never became a reality making it a true ghost town of sorts.
It seems that to much planning of anything will kill off even the best laid plans. Sort of like Wooleys Ride http://thedreamride.blogspot.com that never seems to gain any momentum. Perhaps selling some t-shirts with the dream ride on them along with my caricature picture and just getting on a bike and going would be the thing to do.
Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas
