   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Good morning all. Couldn't sleep so checked out movies. If you had offered a million dollars to identify Gabby Hayes I still would have never got it. What a difference a beard made!

   StormCnter  Isn't that photo something, Gram? The odd thing (or maybe not odd ) about our perception of Gabby Hayes is that he was what we saw on screen in the cowboy films, funny, not too smart, a little bit grimy. But, in real life, he was educated and erudite. He had retired at age 40 from the business world, but lost everything in the '29 crash. His wife persuaded him to move to California and he found a niche in westerns. He didn't learn to ride a horse until he was 50. I love the story.

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  I am a little more than half way through James Grippondo's new book Cane and Abe. Very good.

   Gram77  Apparently I was mistaken about the newness of Grippondo's book mentioned above. I just finished checking our a site called "bookreporter" and found that this author has a book coming out on June 2 entitled Cash Landing. This site gives pretty good reviews and the book sounds interesting. ANYWAY I posted because this because the Suggested Reading site does not seem to be visited as often as it once was. I love reading and like to read many different kinds of books; things from history/war, memoirs, explorers, mystery, and silly stuff, Stephnie Plum being one. I know there are well educated folks here. Could we pep up this site a bit? Hope I am not butting in where I don't belong.

   Gram77 posted on Pet Peeves  Was at Sam's Club yesterday just wandering around when suddenly a cart scrapes along my entire left side, scratching my arm. I jumped, looked to my left and a lady gave me a rather blank look and said, "oh, sorry" and kept going. What is happening to our world?

   Balogreene  Americans and some Europeans tend to have space issues. We like lots of it. Many other countries have cultures of getting close and up front. I get so upset when people invade my space, as Gram's offender obviously did. My problem, I would have yelled at them!

   Safetydude  Not just Europeans, Balo...
Latin America and Mexico is just as bad.
And the NYC subway or the Metro in Paris or the Underground in London. Except for the smell and language 'your space' doesn't exist. I've not been to Tokyo, where as I understand it, it's even worse.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  The Captains Courageous trivia was interesting. Sure had me fooled, it sure looked like the middle of the ocean!

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Viewing/Listening  Has any one seen In Pursuit Of Honor? I have never heard of it but found a review on YouTube. It looks quite good and apparently a true story.

   MeiDei  Reposting this from the Movie Wall for you.
1995 HBO Movie In Pursuit of Honor with Don Johnson & Gabrielle Anwar https://youtu.be/Fdr1hggdnr4

A group of cavalry men defy orders to destroy hundreds of army horses. - Written by Rob Hartill

Based on a true story. In 1932 some American soldiers risked their lives and career for the respect to the horses who fought with them in their battles. Having disobeyed a direct order, the men are pursued by the military, but now the bullets aren't just aimed at the horses. General MacArthur himself ordered the shooting of 509 healthy horses in order to prepare the army for a foreseeable world war.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  Just deleted something that should have been here. About the the "more" thing about Home Fron The Hill. I used to work where everyone used walkie talkies and when one crossed over on another it was called "stepping on each other". That must be what happened.

   StormCnter  It happens to me too, Gram. It takes 10 or 15 seconds to type a comment and in the meantime something else is getting posted. Not a problem. I was worried you might have been offended when you thought "more" was directed at you.

   Gram77  Oh boy, it takes a whole lot more than that to offend me. Actually I laughed and said to myself......ok you want more, I got more, and started typing. : ) : )

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  I finally slogged my way through The Alphabet House. Boy, some book. I donated it to our neighborhood branch of our main library and they were really pleased to get it.

   BirdsNest  I have a hubby and some days he gets on my last good nerve, but then he says something so totally sweet all is forgiven. Sometimes I forget he is so ill.
