Watched the Movie "The Quiet Man"

I just watched the movie, "The Quiet Man" for the first time, ever. (Marilyn turned it on after she got back from getting her hair done early this afternoon.) This is surprising, considering it was made in 1952 (the year I was born) -- and was a John Wayne movie. I love John Wayne and always have.

But I was never much of a Maureen O'Hara fan, so that's probably what kept me from seeing it before now. Of course, I have seen pieces of it over the years -- but never the entire film.

You know what? I really loved it! (And I even liked Maureen O'Hara in it...)

It seems like a pretty sound portrayal of the Irish for that time period, by the way. A lot of American portrayals of the Irish are DEAD WRONG, so this is a pleasant surprise!

It's raining cats and dogs (smile) here today. (ugh) But I went out to feed my crows, even so.

I went to lunch with sister Sue today -- and accidentally closed Henry (cat) in the closet! Poor boy! When I got back there were things lying on the floor in front of the closet, and I was stumped -- wondering where they'd come from. Then I hear muffled meowing and rush to grab him out and rock him in my arms (with my coat still on). After a short time of petting, he forgave me and purred and purred. Sweet, sweet boy! Then he rushed to eat -- he probably thought he was going to starve to death in there.

And on that note, I'm off for a nap.
