TV has been so lousy lately that we watched a MOST interesting and entertaining documentary last night that I would highly recommend. What a great true life story of adventure from 1903, the same year of the first flight. Horatio made the first road trip by car across the United States!!

We have Netflix streaming and here's more about it.

Netflix : Horatio's Drive: America's First Road Trip

We hardly ever go to the movie theater, but we did Tuesday night. We saw 2016-Obama's America.

Have you seen "The Quiet Man" lately. It was John Wayne's favorite of any movie he ever did.
There are some movies you can watch over and over. And "The Quiet Man" is one of them. I miss the movies of the 40's and 50's. You left the theatre talking about them.

I've never seen The Quiet Man. I will need to find that one. I bet Hubby and I would like that one.
And...we love John Wayne!

You definitely have to see it. It tells such a powerful story. And no violence.

LOL! I watch it at least twice a year and I've done that for 20 years. Sometimes I go on a real kick and watch it a couple of times a month. It's one of those movie I will never get tired of.

You and your Hubby will love it!

An old (1928) silent film, starring Lillian Gish - The Wind. She was such a great actress, you forget you're watching a silent film. It was shot in the Mohave. There was so much sand blowing around through the entire film, I wanted to take a shower. lol Good movie.

Then, something completely different - Gilda, (1946) w/ Rita Hayworth. They don't make 'em like that anymore. lol Never get tired of the classics.

No violence? What do you call it...a stroll through the countryside when JW and Victor McLaughlin have at it finally?
